Do you really understand the meaning of OOB Terri? You know I don't.

Simple isnt something you do, never have and I bet never will. No one rises to a challenge (and perseveres) like you do. Lets see you TERRIfy this kit into a gem.

Thanks Des , Ernie and Keith .

This is not going to be a fast build . Lot's of work is needed on the fuselage halves and incorporating the lower wing from the D.IIIa kit with the pointed tips .

There are no panel lines on the fuselage so this will be filled and the access hatches will also be sanded off and replaced with either punch disc out of plastic card or PE parts from the parts pin providing I have enough . So before any frame work can begin mating of these parts needs to come first .

The halves are cut from the sheet and are the only vac parts being used ..

Watching intently, Terri.  One question...when you sand
off the access hatches, etc., is there any plastic left to
build on, or do you have to shore it up from the inside?

Cheers,
Ernie :)
...What could possibly go wrong?

Oooo a vac formed Pfalz! This will be educational to say the least as I've never tackled one. I'm looking forward to following along Terri.

Cheers,

Chris

A nice start Terri, it will be interesting to see how you tackle the access hatches, I'm sure their replacements will look extra good.

While I was setting up my new hobby room I came across stuff I totally forgot about do to loss of interest . This one is from two years ago and has surfaced to the work bench once more for a winter project . I'm making no guaranty that this will get finished , it could end up being the queen once again .

Terri,
I am looking forward to this one! I once owned one of those kits, and also the resin version Never got around to building them before I chucked them after Edward released theirs... :-[
RAGIII




I did likewise to the vac but still have a resin one laying around, so Terri you are very brave to tackle this one !
