    Default Official Pfalz E.II painting thread

    I couldn't find a thread on the E.II so just started this one.

    Shapeways plane by RAF, spinning propeller from the Aerodrome Store, decals I-94 Enterprises, pilot - Peter Pig. Background mat is one of the new Ogre 2' x 2' M series mats just released.

    This is for the DYM OTT solo campaign. Pilot is wearing a Bavarian blue checkered scarf.

    Great looking Pfalz, Peter! What did you use for the wing-warping cables?

    Thanks Chris. Cables are strands from a paint brush. I did a couple of French Morane-Saulnier Ps with wire strands stripped out of a small multi-strand wire but they were not as easy to work with.

    That's an awesome Pfalz, Peter!

    Did you paint the ribs individually?

    Very sharp -- I've always liked those black-outlined early Pfalz's. And the checkered scarf is a nice touch!

    Yes. I cut some small pieces of masking tape and did one rib at a time. I touched them up with a .25mm pen.

    Very nice and quite a lot of work gone into this and it shows, the black lines look very effective as do the wing warping wires.
    Looking forward to seeing it fly at some point.

    That's a sharp looking airplane.
    So how many books are in your personal library?

    I have to throw in some Bavaria now and then as my grandmother (mother's side) was from Augsburg.

    As soon as I finish a couple of Frenchies for DYM they will take to the sky in mission 1.

    Your Pfalz is a beauty, Peter.
    Very accurate work with the wires, the ribs and the black edges.

    I'll have you know I get out almost very day - it's called Key Working!
    If I didn't have to go, these would have been finished months ago.

    Thanks for the Rep!

    I too thought these would be easy, especially after completing a few E.Is....how wrong I was!

    Hope you "endeavour to persevere" with yours - I'm sure we'd all like to see them.
