"Czechoslovak Nieuports" Eduard 1/72
« on: September 14, 2018, 12:04:36 PM »
As a test build for new decal set I started build of 4 Nieuports 17/21/23 from Eduard kit. I use Overtrees and "tickets" kits with PE sets. Unfortunately only few pieces from PE set is usable for this build.

First I started Ni.21 Ser.No. 1940 used by Czechoslovak legions in Russia at 1918. I tried to use internal structure from PE set, but it's a lot of work without significant effect.
Built is fast, kit fit well.

Massive production started. Next three will be Ni.17 No. 4214 and Ni.17 or 23 (or mix of both) No. 3598 in both versions. This one was only one airplane with rotary engine used by Czechoslovak Air Force.

Plus attached image of marking for 1940.

Wood, wash, drybrush, poor photo.

Everything is handbrushed.  I use Citadel and Andrea paints. From Citadel I also use washes, a relatively interesting product with better results when compared to the oil washes or paints and with the simpler, faster and cleaner work. Moreover, it does not smile. Work with these acrylics washes it's a little different comparing with oil paints. It's better for interiors, engine, undercariage wells etc. It is not a surface wash. From the Citadel range I have tried drybrush paint too, but except silver I do not have the best experience with them. Or I have not learned yet.
