This is Dragon's 1/48th scale SPAD XIII. Had problems with the fit of some of the cockpit detail, i.e. the oil tank sits to high and tilts the seat. Had to pry out the floor and seat after the fuselage was together to fix the problem. A real pain. :bangs head The fit of the upper cowling could be bette

I used Testors "ivory" for the underside.


I applied masking tape on the wings and fuselage ad drew out a pattern. Then place the tape on glass and cut it out.

The first upper color was a mix of tans to get the close enough shade of beige.

For the next color I had a Hummbrel tin of light green grey.

I had some left over dark green from the IL-2 build for the next color. Testors brown and black came next.

These little 1/48th WWI planes can be a challenge to build Gary. You are coming along quite nicely on your Spad!

The old SPAD is finally DONE!! I was very disappointed in the fit of the center wing strut. My fault, not the kits. I was worried about he age of the decals. They were yellowed and placed in a sunny window for 5 or so days to bleach them out. Went I applied them they had to sit in water for a few minutes before coming loose. But they went on OK. Used future as a wet before and after application. This is my second build of this kit and the first one was easier for some reason. Thanks for looking!! Gary S. XXXXV XX XX
