    Yes, defintely corrugated metal... The camo scheme on this IMO is winner, and when touched up and finished should look quite nice.

    Would you please stop that! I just took a swig of coffee when I scolled down to the picture of your engine. I nearly sprayed coffee all over my monitor!:grin: What a wonderful build. Can't wait to see it finished!

    I also find the tail very intriguing. First time I've seen a one piece elevator.

    Hi Andreas...

    Have done that with a beverage.. Not pretty.;-) I think some of the Albatros fighters had one piece elevators..

    Well I've attached the main wings, and also added the small strips that are on the wings close to the fuselage. I guess to step on, and not put a hole in the wing?? Next up will be making up the ailerons, though I won't attach them and the elevator until the end..

    wheel assembly

    Did a little work on this, by making up the wheels. Glued up the blanks.. when dried I sanded them to the shape I needed.. Painted dark gray, then dry brushed in lighter shades of gray. Made up the wheel covers, and glued them in. Different shades of pastels, to get the used/worn look I wanted.

    Looking good, Peter the wheels look great weathered, the pic may be a bit bright, but maybe the sides of the tire should be a tiny bit darker than the rolled upon area.

    Will do final tweaking when everything goes together, and will probably make the sides a little "lighter", as they would have less grass and mud on them.. WWI tires were a lot of different shades.. cream... grays.. pinkish white. But not black...
