Today I started adding details. Engines and cowlings finished, added a few decals, touched up the struts on the Jasta 11 bird, and added control horns and attached the ailerons.

Thanks for the kind comment  8)  ::) In answer to your question as to My preference I will say I prefer the Meng kit with one caveat. The Roden kit is awesome for being 0ver 15 years old in it's Molding Process! Having built 5 counting the Steinhauser bird , If I had another in the stash I would happily build it! The fact that I was able to easily adjust so many Meng parts to fit is a testament to just how good Rodens rendition was way back then. Look at Marc/ Monty's build and you can get an idea of what can be done without using aftermarket parts, just Old School Modeling. In case you missed it the first Roden kit in this build was finished a while back:






A few mods using Aviattic and a couple of the actual spare parts from Meng ( Wheels and Axle wing)

Here is the teaser I promised. I have painted both props, painted the control horns on both, touched up a few things, and added a spent shell chute to the Roden kit using an Aviattic item. This should be one of the last updates. Next up weathering both, then rigging and final touch up.
