Thank you Manni, PrzemoL, Giuseppe, Rick and Andreas!

Hopefully I mange it to meet you at Wilnsdorf.
That would be great, really great! So I will try to take a big amount of my fleet with me.

One lonely hint: blending oils is much easier on dull surfaces than on glossy ones.
Thank you very much for this hint! This shows that I'm in many areas a bloody beginner and have to learn a lot.
Its already to late to change it, the oil paint is completely hardened, so the "Medium L" works as advertized.

Cheers,
Frank

Bristol F.2B Fighter, Eduard 1/48, Update 20.1.2019 Windshield
« Reply #91 on: January 21, 2019, 12:47:05 AM »
Windshield


Today only a small detail ...

Cleaned up the exhaust pipes, opened the outlet, added brass pins and four layers with airbrush, from left to right.
With the naked eye one can still notice teh steel.



A another detail I started to prepare the windshield.
Kit part left, replaced by Parts PE and wood.



I noticed the wood on this picture:

The drawing for the parts PE is wrong, needs to be folded other way around to get a "bag" for the glass!
A little bit CA secures the glass.



I used the PE part as template, but it was to high so I sanded the arc a bit to get it more deeper.
And I need to clean the screen ...



If someone own this kit, but don't need the decals - I'm interested.


Cheers
Frank

Bristol F.2B Fighter, Eduard 1/48, Update 3.2.2019 Brackets
« Reply #93 on: February 04, 2019, 01:59:33 AM »
Thank you for looking ain and commenting Rick!


Brackets


A small life sign ...

I was not able to remove the broken decals without destroying the painting.
Even with alcohol the decal resists partly, but not the paint.



On the decal sheet I don't checked the text for the wheels, very hard to read on this light blue.
The decals were hard to put on, breaks often into parts. And here I also decided to remove them again, because not looking good ...



and wrong too: the name was in capital letters:

Also on the Bristol fighter:

To work off after this frustrating experience I continued with the remaining mounts for the RAF wires:



So I was able to mount all 16 brackets for the wings.
You see here 188 individual metal parts, much more as number of parts in the kit! Additionally I put 16 micro tubes into the wing holes.
May be Bob can produce such buckles to make the life easier.



Looks not that bad compared to the original:

So sometime you go one step forward and fall 3 21 steps back!

Cheers,
Frank

Frank,
    Those brackets are sheer artistry, just absolutely amazing and superb work. I am truly in awe of your ability to consistently turn out such unique and realistic accessories, particularly in the small scale you work in. Another winner about to emerge from your shop!
Cheers,
Lance

Thank you my friends!
The mounting plates are prepared on page 3, it was only a bigger task to do it 16 times ::)

Cheers,
Frank

The decal problem is very sad. So much work lost.
But I look forward to the next steps.

Manni, thanks for your compassion! But I was able to recover:
The decals are removed, newly primed, airbrushed partly with gray.
Then masked again and airbrushed with green, some days drying time.

One lonely hint: blending oils is much easier on dull surfaces than on glossy ones.
Andreas, this was a big help!
After a thin layer with "Micro Flat" I started today with oils, the blending was easier.

I my eyes the new try looks better. The cam do not show that much yellow, I think in real there is more.





If I should change it further, speak up now - the oils are still fresh ;)

Cheers,
Frank

Decals


At first I like to thank Giuseppe and Eduard for the offerings and help with the decals.
After the paint was dry I brushed a glossy layer and put the decals to the nose, this time to the correct position.



This time also the fish was a one piece affair. All the cutouts are done already.



With plugged exhaust - looks like a cigar.



I like the moment, where all the prepared subassemlies starts to set up a plane! Here with the front radiatior.



Now the final mounting starts.

Cheers,
Frank
