Pfalz D.III & D.IIIa - scratchbuilds in 1/144 scale
« on: March 21, 2021, 09:27:58 AM »
Here is my first on-topic build, finished at last.  A pair of Pfalz D.III scouts.

They are made from a mix of styrene & acrylic sheet, resin, brass and sterling silver.  Paints are Gunze lacquers and rigging is done with 0.05mm nickel silver wire.  A link to the wip thread is linked below if you would like to see how they went together.

Cheers!















Thanks for looking.  Here's the link to the build thread:

Absolutely brilliant William! They could easily pass as 1/72 or larger.

That is so impressive! Especially the rigging :o
The build is so clean, there would not much difference on pictures compared to a model of bigger scale!

Cheers,
Frank

Exquisite miniatures, the match stick in one of the shots gives an even greater sense of what an amazing achievement this is, I'm stunned!!!!
