1/32 German Flight Compass
« on: February 14, 2017, 09:34:59 AM »
Several people have inquired about the availability of the compass with working gimbal like the ones I made for my Fokker D.III and Fokker D.VII.





I've made this model available separately now, and also as a pair. You supply decal for the face and your own .25mm pins. Also a short section of .5mm tubing for the tuning thing that hangs below the gimbal.

Single compass:

pair of compasses:

Thanks Bo. I'll add that to my list for the next time I order from Shapeways.

Just received a couple of the 1/32nd scale sets. I think they might go well with the two  Mikr Mir D.VIIIs I've got.

Think I need one of these for my new Dueliist LVG. Spare compass decals (and all the other instruments) are on the WNW decal sets sold seperately



Happy Modelling

Mine arrived earlier than expected, they are superb , but extreme care to be taken in assembly.
