1/72 Airfix Hannover CL.111a
September 15, 2015 in Aviation
This is an old build that I did some time ago, fixed up a bit, and re-photographed. I added some tin around the radiator, some rib tape, and the batons. This was my first major rigging project, and I hadn’t quite figured out how to nestle in and attach those little brats between the rigging. I eventually mastered the technique. Engine enhancement, control horns, etc. were done during the build. Pretty good figures I thought.
The large 4 color lozenge pattern is made from cut pieces of painted decal material. The 5 color pattern on the wings is a Techmod product. The 45 deg. off set is based on reference info. I found for two seat aircraft.
The build represents CL 111.a 3879/18 of an unknown Schaclltstaffein of the western front, 1918. (kit info.)
