and thus all controversy over the Halberstadt price is laid to rest.

the space between the announcement and pre-orders was very short on this one!

that newsletter also mentioned more WWI kits in development that they're not quite ready to announce yet...

WNW must be laughing out loud at all of this CSI work. :)

If they put a Dr.I datafile in that stack, they would certainly have stirred the pot! :-)

BTW, instructions on the Cl.IIs are up also.

i think the fact that they DIDN'T put a Dr.I datafile in the stack PROVES that the DR.I is the next release

They are lovely, but until some one points me towards a good tutoriol on how to do the scumble look, it is a no go for me.

What I mostly want to know is what are the underlaying colours and what is stippled on top, is that a single colour or is it multiple colours randomly placed? or specific colours matched (a specific top colour for a given unlerlaying colour)?

anybody now the answer or know where to look?

many thanks, Hidde

When I recall it properly, there seem to have been hand painted „lozenges“ in various colors that were stippled over with a stiff brush/sponge in a uniform color. The WDF includes the hypothesis that different solvents could have been in use so that the colors repelled each other. The fuselage in Krakow shows this technique. It might be worked over in the 1930ies, but in my view it matches the shape on the photos quite well

I expect WNW will add a Hints & Tips section to the Halberstadt listings showing how to do the camo stippling.  Much like they did with the Stahltaube's cowling "scales".

From a modelers perspective, the pic looks like an overall light color fuselage with sponge or stipple work applied in controlled areas.

For example hard mask the surrounding area, then apply the effect, then mask that off and do a different color panel.

Wont be easy.

true. Camouflage colors speckled onto a shellack surface (no additional speckling over it). I checked WDF 27 and 157. Maybe some carefully cut to shape sponge brushes will do the job.  :)
otherwise maybe an aftermarket producer will release a decal sheet similar to these Mirage Hobby had printed for their 1/48 Halberstadt Cl.II:

Last hope: in one of the Halberstadt boxes there are markings for the 'candy sticked' 5720/17, named "Martha" and "Else", it is yellow-black or red striped overall -- so no camouflage speckles visible.

The instructions are up at the WNW site Andreas.

I'm sure there will be some artistic license on this effect also, similar to wood grain effect.
