Resurrecting an old project: Junkers CL.I
« on: January 15, 2022, 12:44:08 AM »
Hello Everyone,
I haven't been building much in the way of WWI aircraft of late. While searching for some stuff
in my stash I discovered this Pegasus Junkers CL.I I had started about five years ago.



I've added a mostly scratch built interior and an engine from spare Roden parts. One thing I can say about this kit is
it was very rough and a lot of the fine corrugation is lost in cleaning up the seams. I'll try to re-scribe some and hide
other areas with weathering.



This is an aircraft I would love to see in 1/48th scale. I realize there is not a lot of information available on the type compared to it's
stablemate, the Junkers D.I.

Stay tuned as I hope to bring this one to completion.

                                                                                     Happy Modeling,
                                                                                     Kevin

Great to see another one fighting a Pegtasus model. I am about to finish mine after 6 years. So 5 years is a good mean value.
A model thrives on its overall impression and not on that every little disagreement over the original is hyped up as a disaster

Good to see another lesser known type being built. From the photographs you are making an excellent model there - especially given the starting point!

Thanks Wolf, I've been keeping up with your LVG build. It's a bit of an inspiration.

Thanks Stephen. I really had to carve this one out of a very rough molding with very thick trailing edges.

Good luck with it.  I have a couple of them and from a purely fondling plastic point of view, they seemed to be some of Pegasus' better efforts.  I was contemplating doing something without rigging once my shelf of doom is cleared (3 or 4 to go) and was staring this kit straight in the face.  I will have to rethink now, but I will be following your progress with great interest.

I've not had the pleasure but Kevin your photos show a pretty nice little kit.

I'm only really familiar with the type through photos and video I've seen of the lookalike replicas that fly in the UK with the Great War Display team. As a result I made an own-design balsa chuck glider which flew pretty well! One of those machines that seems like it would be a fun and practical (passenger seat!!) 1/1 project.

EDIT: I found it! Have given it a thread here.
