1:32 WingNutWings Albatros D.Va

This Albatros is my first try with WWI plane and riggings. When attaching the lower wings, I needed to fix them at an angle to be attached to the upper wing. I messed up the propeller’s painting, so it doesn’t look like laminated wood.

  1. It looks good, and a little larger photos would help to better appreciate the work.

    Nice job

  2. A really nice “first WWI” model and you can definitely save that prop once you get a bit more experience with that (painting a wood prop to look right is one of the hardest parts of a WWI model). Everything else is “up there.”

  3. Nice build. Wondering how yo did the wiring.
    This is nicely done on yours.

  4. Thanks for the comments. I have a FE 2b in my stash. I will give the propeller another try soon. As for the riggings, I use the method described here: http://www.ipmsstockholm.org/magazine/2001/11/stuff_eng_tech_rigging.htm
    I used fishing line, some brass tubes and copper wire from electric wires.

  5. This looks great! I love the chosen scheme.

  6. Looks great, Thomas. For a first WWI it is a winner! As for the prop, like Tom @tcinla said, you can revisit it as long as you feel like it, so no worries.
    Congratulations on your job!

  7. It looks really nice, the rigging and engine add to the overall great job!
