    A great improvement on the original Gyula. Are you doing this with all the new releases?

    Probably. Still have a a new MvR and Kirschstein left too look at. Kirschstein's upper wing edges will be the most difficult to fix.
    MvR looks a little easier to upgrade. Those are the only new ones I have left.
    I did pick up the Chaput's MS. I'd like to try my hand at rigging it. Noted several excellent examples on the aerodrome site.
    Though fun to upgrade the factory minis, I dont want to take it too far.
    If the mini requires a full reworking, I'll pick up Shapeways or some of the excellent SRAM kits.

    All right , I'm done for a bit.
    My new Kirschstein's Dr.I. Prop, wing edges, guns, and axle wing. Also, I painted the wheel covers.
    Three planes done. Time to wait for some decent weather to seal them with dull coating.

    Yup, gonna have to touch up the LVR... but not a hard thing to do. maybe buy up a couple more LVRs and start the repaints.. more from the Circus could be in order..

    Default Repainting the Rittmeister's 'Le Petit Rouge'

    After receiving the 'new' WGF Series I I had two all red Fokker Dr.1's. I decided to do a quick 'repaint', more of a 're-decal' really, producing von Richthofen's last mount 425/17 in April 1918 livery. After painting over the existing national markings I applied some Skytrex 'Balkenkreuz' decals left over from a previous model. I painted over rather than removed the original decals because I wanted to be able to just see the old markings underneath, which was often the case in the actual aircraft.

    I used the Series 1 repaint version of MvR's triplane as the red was more of a match to the paint. And I could not bring myself to repaint my original Series 1 as it was my first Wings of War miniature.

    Great idea Chris.
    It has always been a bone of contention about Manfreds all red Fokker. Now you have the choice of which one of the three paint schemes to field.

    I recently had some time off from work (the wife had surgery) and I managed to squeeze in some painting time.. mostly in the wee hours of the night! One of the planes I turned out was Jacobs Dr.I. It was all black paint and decals, so not hard, but fast... just what I had time and energy for!







    I've got a painted PP pilot to put in it... just forgot to!

    Very impressive Herr Oberst.
    I have always liked the insignia on that plane, and yours is particularly crisp.

    Thanks guys. I did spot a bit of red peaking though on one of those wing tips in the photos. And the silvering around the daemon decal is not as bad in real life... I think the flash made it stand out more then it does under normal lighting. Still wish I could get rid of it completely.

    Maybe the easiest repaint ever thanks to some old 1:144 D3A Val decals, Urnst Udet, Jasta 4.

    Very nice. I am encouraged how a basic paint scheme and decals can make a mini look so good.

    I hope your wife is doing well.

    Lol I've taken all of my piccies off my HTC smart phone, but it seems the images that I've taken are far to blurry, perhaps I need to have a tinker with my mobile and see if the picture quality improves, they're better in the flesh but sadly the photos are letting them down chaps.

    Although the picture is none too clear, it looks as if you have made a first rate job of it Mike. You can tell just by observing the diamond pattern around the fusalage.

    Hmm, maybe. I'm running out of Jasta 11 decals on my sheet, though, and hand painting Steinhauser's plane was pretty brutal

    I'll probably stay at six for awhile. I'd like to do a Camel squadron next, ideally one that operated in the same theater as JG1 in March-April 1918, but I haven't settled on one yet.

    Are you using Micro Sol? If not it's worth trying as I've found that it will eliminate the edges of decals as long as you put them on a gloss surface. If you are doing this then I'm not sure why you are getting silvering.

    I'm guessing you're the same Mav1624 that's bidding on my Steinhauser - so I don't have to tell you about that.

    I'm selling him to make room for the newest addition to Jasta 11, Richard Wenzl.
