We have all or own limits with PE parts... And, as always with PART photoecth, some parts are simply too hard to use successfully...

After a few day "out of business" due to professional reasons, I'm back on the Spad...

The exhausts: here is what I can to as best with the PE. I'm not really happy of that...

More than that, the attachment system to the fuselage is complex (two PE parts), too fine and too long. I think I will use the kit parts, that I will try to ameliorate.

I've also tried to form the trap under the engine. Unsucessfully...

I will try again, but later, after the demi-fuselage will be glued together. But I'm thinking to "B" plan: the use of the kit part that, of course, I will have to ameliorate too...

Some little progress:

The ailerons


The wheels

...Putty and sanding needed of course...

The actual bench:

Coming nicely...

I see on your workbench that you're using Humbrol acrylics: how are these?

Thank you - In fact, I suggested to Philippe Jacques from PJ Production the pose of the pilot, wishing one not standing near the aircraft, nor sitting in the aircraft...

It seem that during WWI Belgian made their khaki using a mix of "what they could find": perheaps PC10 + PC12, or a mix with French green...
Of course that would say that you can have a variety of +/- similar khakis...
That paint was fixed in the inter war, and our Foxes, Fireflies, SV5, Gladiators... were painted with a "standard" Belgian khaki.

Thank you!

The color used to represent the Belgian khaki is a mix of Dark Brown and Dark Green. I used WWII references (the British colors used at the beginning of WWII).
The proportions were 50/50; but for the Spad I will probably use 60% Dark Brown 40% Dark Green.

Aircraft Modeling / Belgian Fokker E.V
« on: October 31, 2010, 05:47:27 PM »
Just after having finished my D.VII, I've built this one: th eprobably only one Fokker E.V that beared Belgian colors!

It seems that that aircraft was found at Evere after the Armistice, and taken as personal aircraft by Lieutenant Van Cotthem. He first flew with a lozenge fuselage but after 1920 was repainted khaki and received the number "17" during the meeting of Evere in 1921...









The kit is the Dragon at 1/48th scale; pilot is from PJ Production

Thank you Profa!

For the tyres, it was indeed an envy to present tyres other than grey...
