1/32 WNW Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin
« on: October 19, 2020, 02:39:47 AM »
Finished my Wingnut Wings Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin in the markings of 79 Sqn. from Mar. 1918. It was the first recorded Dolphin lost to enemy action, possibly the 11th victory of Jasta 5 ace, Ltn. Fritz Rumey. I added Pheon decals for the 'C' & 'C3905', added Taurus spark plugs to the outer cylinder banks and added rigging. All else is OOB. I had problems with the kit roundel decals, will paint next time. Had to paint the fin flash for the same reason. Painted with MRP PC 10 late on top, Xtracolor Ocean grey & Xtracolor RFC Doped Natural Fabric on bottom. Post shaded the ribs & formers. Weathered lightly with pastels. My first WW1 British build, still have to tweak the shading effects. Lots of photos, hope you like.

I like your exhaust pipes, stained without being too rusty.
Nice job.

I think that the weathering is just right - just enough without being overdone. A first class model indeed - the rib shading is excellent. Congratulations of a super model.
