Finished: 1/48 Albatros C. III
« on: March 09, 2018, 08:58:37 PM »
Hello,

I have the models stored for a long time.
The kit made by Special Hobby is a copy of the one made by Eduard but more beautiful... But it will be necessary to prepare the pieces with care.
Some eduard photoetched parts are directly molded onto the parts of the Hobby Kit.

Obviously it will be this one. With a dragon and a green crocodile (neither white nor gray).



Only 2 images (windsock datafiles)  showing the cockpit ...

This one, CIII or B II ?

On the floor (SH) I added the four boards (0.5x0.4mm).All the wood is painted with Mr Hobby's color (sail) and oil.





The reservoir is Eduard's.



The case, the throttle are in photoetched folded except the interupteur added.




The chair is modified by gluing strips of plastic in and sanding.




The steering wheel is made of metal wire, the pulley and the inside of the steering wheel come from the eduard photoetch.








The opening of the cockpit is refined.



Both slots are missing.



I will try to refine the wall and cut them out but I think it will not work ...
Maybe by sticking a plate with the gills cut out ?

Regards.

Beautiful wood effect in the interior. You are doing terrific work on the interior bits as well.

Thank you.

I used the plan of the Albatros BII (wingnutwings) to make my cockpit. I'm sure of nothing.

I replaced the black dials with white dials.



I added an oil pump in brass tube and below a tube with a faucet.



I should have glued the dashboard to the other half of the fuselage because the throttle cables must enter two holes on this  dashboard...

The box that carries the throttle is a little too low.



The leather armchair.





Of course it was too easy to put the gunner's seat under the hole ... I do not see what it's used for where Sp. Hobby put it.




Regards.

Your interior has come together beautifully. I do not have the answer for why the hole is under the seat but I am sure someone will.

Beautiful work on the interior, Louis!  That observer's seat is a glaring mistake by SH.  I moved the rear bulkhead and seat forward on mine to the position you indicate in red.  Easy fix.
Cheers,
Bud

Thank you!

Hello!


I moved everything so that it was not below the chair armrest and the tingles in front of the dashboard holes.

 

The painting was damaged, obviously...

 


The gunner's seat was moved forward by 5 mm:

 

Now he can use it!

Nice work on the correction of the seat and bulkhead. All is looking great.
