Whats with that black wing?
Well – just thinking that the skin on almost any aircraft is seldom smooth and straight, and as this one is going to be red and white I thought I might try and add some interest to the surface on top of that
All the panels were scrabed lightly with a roundtipped knifeblade.
Then some sanding, black paint to check
Wingtips received doped strips of fabric, fashioned from filler between tape,
They were then sanded not to be too visible
The coolers got the copperwirepushrod/strengthening rod
1. Strengthening rod in the oilcooler (pushrods in the watercoolers)
At least they are visible for the interested onlooker
And then some homemade maskng
1. Ready for RLM 66 (for the interior to look right)
2. Hole for signal pistol! They were on all the swiss G-6’s (some swiss Emils had a flare-battery in the aft fuselage!
Needs some tape and a fresh blade, then it is actually not that difficult – but take care not to scratch the glass! (don’t ask)
next up I will be up to speed and painting commences
