Gorgeous project, K!  Everything from the engine to the cockpit to the wings is truly brilliant.  Love the subject, too!
Cheers,
Bud

Got to agree with my Amigo! Terrific work to date in all regards!

Thanks for being here!
Now the most interesting part: hexagons and the methodology of applying.
To sum up that topic is rather unsolved and unveiled, so I will focus on simplifying the apply as long as possible in terms of pattern and color used.
First approach: decals. Only one, which I know are produced by PrintScale and looks rather pale, but who knows how did they look like  After first trial it seems  they are useless and react just like Rodenís ones. See the picture. So: mission was not accomplished

Second approach: masks. Not available on the market so I had to order. Waiting for delivery I have prepared 2 base colors, on which the hexagons will be applied

i have enjoyed your build so far. below i have a link to louis's berg build. i followed this build as it happened. he did extensive study on the colors and mixed paint and used frisket film masks. it is an aviatik d.1 though. i dont remember seeing any aviatik d.11 with hex camo, which plane will you model?

Hello,

Thanks for the links I have been looking into that build already.
I am going to do 39.08 and you can see fuselage hex on wings palette: http://wp.scn.ru/en/ww1/f/176/175/4#34
I assume the draft was based on Japo.
BTW. I have altered 'light grey" base as added to much blue color. Now it is the mixture of white, little black and just small drop of azul blue. Pics soon
regards

Hello,
Finally masks were received so started to implement first hexagons. Used Vallejo French Blue with just little bit of red

Looks as though the masks are working out quite nicely!

Hello,
..still doing that tedious work.
In comparison with Japo I can see now that my lighter hex should rather go just behind the pilotís seat. I am half hex ahead of that line..well seems to be some kind of mistake with criteria taken, but I am not going to finish PhD in hex camo:), so keep on doing my work.

You are doing a brilliant job with the hexagon painting and like what Gregory said, she is going to one very colourful bird.
