Wow, just....wow. Better than WnW?

Comparable in many aspects. But then, different in being resin, 3D print, not injection plastic.

Slow progress on the cockpit interior...

Really great progress on this one Przemo! Your detail painting and small improvements such as the springs are amazing!

Thanks.

Some more bits added to the interior truss. There is more to come including some tubing and cables seen in the photos of Mikael Carlson's replica which are not included in the kit.





And I have just got the lovely precut veneers to carve the Wotan propeller from the ever reliable Kotebi who is currently adding the cleverly engineered 4-bladed propellers to the offer. Needless to say - highly recommended. The pack is now glued together and impregnated using liquid CA glue. Carving soon!

Thanks, Andreas.

If the prop were 2bladed the carving would be over  ;)

That's really clever! I was not aware of the Kotebi offerings.

But you still consider it as cheating, don't you?  ;D

Clear orange applied to give the final hue. The boss plate cut from the kit part, with the openings drilled out, painted steel. A delicate wash and manufacturer logo stickers will complete the job.
