From what I see, looks pretty good so far.

Is that a wood finish on the fuselage?

Looks like the sights aren't lined up on that MG. Just kidding...lol!

Hi there

Your idea for wood decals looks really neat :-) the effect of different panels is spot on!! :-)

The MG looks very tasty... coming home yesterday, I was wondering whether to nick a pair of photoetched machine guns from another kit to replace the solid jobs in my Albatros - yours looks so neat, I'll give it a try! :-)

All the best

Lord Cat.

The first pic is a nice reproduction of the exhaust in 1/48, good wrok. The 2nd pic, the pin that next to the coin is nice, and the brass color is neat. The third pic, the babana thing that looked like wood is funny.

Over all, very nice. Lord Cat, can't wait to see it finished. and 1/48 PE machine gun, you crazy! I am sure Obe is gonna love it.

Cat:
Looking good so far. Especially the wood decals. Very nice touch, first time I have seen this used on a model. Keep us posted on how it is going.
Oh and be careful with the cockpit.
