1/48 Roland C.II. It's been a long time ! 06 Jun 2019 20:55 #1

G'day guy's an gall's it's been well over a year since I have logged in and about the same length of time since I have hit the bench, so it's about time I got back again.
At first I was going to build this in the Pilots an Planes build but I could not find any info to back up the information given by Eduard in the kit .Mind you knowing where to search is not one of my strong points.

This recon plane was said to be flown by Lt.Seibert with the observer Hptm.Pfleger.

So I might go with this scheme instead.

Well after having to replace the bulbs in all my bench lights and then finding that the air reg on my compressor had somehow copped a wack and needed replacing (This is what happens after a year or so of non use) I have managed to get a little done on this.
I must admit I'm surprised at the amount of flash on this kit plus the size of the sprue gates on some of the tiny parts like the joystick wheel. They made for alot of work an tidy up to get them lookin good.

P.E window frames in although it looks bare at the moment there is some Pre painted P.E to go in here.

A bit more progress.
The interior in an what a fiddly little bugger it was with all the P.E that had to go in,so many tiny leavers on the instrument panel an walls.So much so I forgot to take pic's of the panel. :bangs head

Built the gun's and not very happy with the end result.
This is where more experience with small PE comes to the fore,just trying to get the alignment right while drying :bangs head .

The spinney thing

Also managed to get the decals on but somehow got some fluid frosting on one wing tip :idonno
The kit sat for 3 days after the gloss coat went on before decaling,it should go with the next clear coat.
