Frank's Scale Model Aircraft Art!
Wingnuts Wings Albatros DVa - 1/32!!
I plan to build this version!
The rigging was not described much, but tricky to do using 0.015
hardened stainless steel wire inserted into holes I had previously
drilled into the wings and fuselage. Since the SS wired was hardned
and resistant to "bending", the holes had to be pre-aligned so that
the wire would not look "bowed" after inserting through the entrance
holes and then poking into the target holes.
Upper surface colors: Tam Medium Gray Green XF-71, and Mauve as Tam X-16 (1) to Tam XF 52 (2). Over sprayed lightly with Testors Glosscote.
Sub assembly now taking shape.
Panel detail showing "Wood Graining" of varnished birch plywood effect better!
My 52nd+ Build!
Comments are always appreciated!
