  1. A tiny gem of a model. The fact you managed to get that small plane rigged is by itself a feat. Good work

  2. One of the more obscure WW1 planes that should have been better known. I have this kit and one day I hope to build it as well as yours.

  3. This is an excellent job of a rarely seen plane, Predrag.
    Congratulations on your masterpiece!

  4. Fantastic build of this tiny bird Predrag.
    Nice looking propellor also.

  5. Nice work! What brand lozenge did you use on the wings?

  6. Great job on the Siemens-Schukert. IIRC, this kit is one of Eduard's first kits, and Eduard also re-released a revised version some time later, to meet demand. This kit is one of the first to come with significant photo-etch, with most of the interior being PE; back then PE was relatively new to us modelers...and who had a folding tool to make those tiny bends? You have done an excellent job getting this model built...Congratulations!

    • Thank you all for a kind words.
      Yes, this is a great Eduard relase, and, like with other Eduard kits, need a lot of dry fit, expecially before putting together fuselage halves. One problem that Eduard did never solves to the end is lozenge color on decals.
      Anyway, mostly thanks to Eduard I did started WW1 1:48 adventures and i am still in.

  7. I have to go along with Marvin Reyes as our time period for building models was in the 1980's and 1990's. If you wanted something for your had to scratch-build it yourself. During the 2000's decade, "P.E." items came on the market along with cast-resin stuff.

    I scratch build the cockpit and wheel wells for a 1/32 scale F6F-3/5 Hellcat, which was posted on "," about 20 years ago.

    It was nice to work with the new "P.E." parts, as it was a new learning experience.
