First step is the interior, after a bit of exam of the details of the fuselage given by the manufacturer I decided to remove them and make them all new. It's not to hard to rebuild them, and by removing them the paint is much easier.

After removing the details I started to paint the interior, and made a " wooden " lath from Evergreen styren to replace the originals.

All the " lost " details back again, the inner surfaces done, now the joining of the fuselage to follow.

Hi ! The work on my Albatros continued. While the putty and sanding is in progress I decided to make a new propeller. It's made like the real thing, from laminated wood using the plastic from the box as master.

But, as always, I wasn't satisfied. The look of the propeller with six layer of wood didn't seem good as it should so I made another one, this time with 11 layers.....And I'm satisfied with this one  :)
