Hello,
very nice kit, I am working on it, too.
Your work looks great up to now. The worn wood effect on the floor is done superb! That is exactly my cup of tea, as I love worn and weathered planes.
Bye,
Manni

    I too prefer a worn and used look and your results here are spectacular! That worn wood is "top drawer", lovely work! 8) 8) 8)

I'm less inclined to the worn look (to each their own). But what you are doing looks really great!!!

Cheers

Wow! Thanks for those kind words! I'm still working to make cockpit more colorful and i'm trying to breathe life into it ::)

Gun ring is under construction. I thought that it was from steel but it was wooden.

Spectacular details, Kamil. Looking forward to see it completed, possibly on a competition table  ;)

Thanks Artur!

I hope so! Maybe in Bytom 2018? My target for this model is Moson Model Show. For the first time my plan is vignette.



BTW. Cockpit is done :) Gallery below. I have a question to the experts. W.29 has white canvas stripes on ribs or not? Archive photos are fooling me. This looks like dark:



...and this like white:


And the gallery:

Hi Kamil,
Here's an extract from my build log being written for my build of the W.29:

Wing rib tapes.
Reference:
Windsock Data File No.55 - Brandenburg W.29 by Peter M Grosz.

Fabric covered surfaces, particularly those on the wings and tailplane, were either applied from a continuous bolt of cloth or applied in sections.
Care was taken to match the separate fabric sections.
To strengthen the joins of fabric, ‘rib tapes’ of linen were stitched and/or glued over the rib joins.
These tapes could be either of the same colour or of a contrasting colour, including hexagonal and lozenge patterns.
Photographs of that period are generally of a poor quality and make it difficult to make out such things as rib tapes.

Rib tapes were either coloured blue (over the lighter coloured fabric) or pink (over the darker coloured fabric). Rib tapes were also cut from the same bolts of fabric.
