Thank you all !

Unfortunately I didn't have much time for modeling lately, but in a few past days I did some progress. I started to detail the engine, first step was to make the oil cooler pipes. The base is copper wire, all connections are soldered, the detailing up ( rubber hose connection ) is made from Tamiya masking tape.

The machine gun barrels are made from an injection needle, first painted with flat black, the gun metal look is achieved with graphite pencil ( HB )

Lovely to see a change from WW1 to the post-war period too. Great work and still more to see.

Lack of time, and unfortunately inspiration as well made it's toll ......

However I'm back in the saddle again and I continued my work on alba.

As my lovely wife says I'm never satisfied with what I found in the box, so why should it be different this time ?  :) Eduard give nice photo-etched parts but I don't like when the round cross section objects are flat so I used Eduard's parts only as a base

And I started to put the turnbuckles on their place, this is very needy process but well worth time and energy !

Well, this moment has come finally, a few small adjustments and the base and the Alba is finished....

And it's officially done. The strings are from women stockings. The base is quartz sand and static grass.

For conclusion, Eduards Albatros is a great kit, with a little trouble you can build a superb model, with Gaspach accessories even better.....
