Maarten I loved the engine, but now I'm loving much more than that. You can tell this is an outstanding model and you're doing it real justice. The engine and cockpit sit so well in the fuselage. Really like the panel shades on the fuselage too. You need to buy a few of these.

As I said on the Zone, I really like the scheme you went with. The decals look like you painted them on. Looks great

Maarten, really good coverage, as per the drawing, over the crosses on the side. Did you mask up and paint the hammer?

I've probably pasted this up before but I'm learning that rigging isn't such a big deal if you approach it with your brain (and a little bit of cash too I suppose).

www.ww1aircraftmodels.com/

Check out this guy's rigging method because for 1/32 it's a winner. You can get great thread from Wingnuts...I have some and it's perfect. Check out their 'E-Z Line' in charcoal...it's a bit elastic too.

You can also get the brass tube you need here;

www.jbmodel.eu/index.php?osCsid=f6f1bc92...102ec46ed3decd022cb0

I bought some .03mm brass tube from this guy and will be getting some .05mm stuff when he has it in stock (couple of weeks). Service is excellent from JB. He's based in Austria so not quite as far from you as me. It's my intention to build one of my WnW kits this year and the method above is what I will use.

Peace.

The heavens were the grandstands and only the gods were spectators. The stake was the world, the forfeit was the player's place at the table, and the game had no recess. It was the most dangerous of all sports and the most fascinating. It got in the blood like wine. It aged men forty years in forty...
