Se-5a Wolseley Viper 1/48 Eduard
« on: October 09, 2018, 05:08:19 AM »
Hello all,
I am a new member here. Altrough I am a modeler almost whole my life (from age 6 ,now 47),I have never been interested in WWI aviation. Well, changes comes this year,with this model build.
Eduard Se-5a is a great model,maybe a little complicated for someone,like me, who build airplane from this period for a first time. Anyway,construction was a real "joyride",so ,next WWI project will come soon.
Every comment or criticism is more than welcome from you guys.

Thanks for watching...

Beautifully done Pedja, the subtle treatment of the rib shading, the lovely cleanly finished paint work, the detail and it just goes on! Great work and more so given it's your first venture in the WW.I subject genre.
Cheers,
Lance

If that is your first, what will subsequent models look like? That is an excellent first - as Lance has written there is much to praise. Looking forward to seeing more of your work in future.

Saw this model already on scalemates, this is a nice start into WWI subjects! But one can see, that you are an experienced modeler.
Since I build this kit at the moment I know the work you have done.

Cheers,
Frank
Wikipedia says: A model is a simplified representation of reality.
So I create downscaled originals.

Whoa - that is GREAT.  Especially for a first venture into WWI.  I really like the "green tone" and the contrast of the color on the underside of the wings.  I think the subtle shading is very well done.
