DVIII progress

I’m getting pretty far along now on this build. The tissue is yellow but once it was doped it was too transparent for my tastes.

I masked it and airbrushed the black stripes but they just looked too clean. In fact the whole plane looked like a new car.

Being a long time model builder for movies I just had to do some hand painting and streaking. I plan to weather it a bit more to looked used in battle wheary.

I still need to either make a prop that looks scale like or order something from George in balsa. I’ve never made my own prop yet but I’m tempted. It takes a 6 inch prop with a recommended 5 degrees of pitch.

I still have to make the machine guns to. But I really happy with this kit and the way it’s looking.
