WnW 1/32 Albatros D.V Ernst Udet Jasta 37 September 1917
« on: July 08, 2022, 10:54:57 PM »
Hi Folks, here are a few pics of my finished Wingnut Wings Albatros D.V. I was able to try a few new things while building the model, and am grateful to our group here for the help and advice I received along the way. My thread of the build is here:

The photos below include a couple of figures I'd previously painted up, which are a familiar pair by Model Cellar, done with Vallejo Acrylics.
Cheers,
Gary

Watched this all the way through construction, Gary, and it's been a masterclass. Superb model and the colours - the wood tones, lozenge etc complement each other beautifully. Work of art.

I am always impressed by your models - this one is no exception. A superb finish, especially the chipped spinner and wood fuselage, and extreme care with detail. An outstanding model in every way and a very informative build thread.

Many congratulations.

Stephen.

I could stare at this wood rendition for hours... And the rest of this model is not worse. What a beauty!

   You've done it again Gary, magnificent! Your detailing as always is top drawer and the clean finish with just "enough" weathering brings a wonderfully real appearance to the model. I hope to see this beauty in person next year in Nanton with any luck; this break in a "normal" existence is getting a little "Old" these days! Maybe we had too much fun at the last Contest and are paying the price .........!!
Cheers,
Lance
