Let’s do the time warp again,
In 1918, Just after 15 years from first engine powered flight in Kitty hawk, the first full-metal aircraft was on the runway. Hugo Junkers and other engineers were stood watching this silver plated bird about to take off. I can imagine that atmosphere.
Junkers D.1 was first all-metal plane for the massive production. I actually don’t know well of history part. I’ll wait for further information of my well informed fellows.
D.1 was colored with typical German camouflage in purple and green scheme but I thought this NMF will look better with her iconic title. not the exactly same, but D.1’s prototype was also in NMF.
Paint is silver spray (cheap and good local industrial lacquer can spray) and acryllic paint is used again for light weathering.
It was my first Roden kit and I’m really content with it’s detail. I built it without any other detaling but it already looks nice. Engine is far more for this small scale. and I put effort for brushed it.
the only sad part is the decal. It was hard and crisp and never applicable to plane’s corrugated plate. I could scan and reprint with decal sheet but I just put it for tomorrow..
Thanks for watching. -Seob
