1/72 Academy Sopwith Camel Build
Posted by KosmoCramer on Monday, January 13, 2020 9:19 PM

Hello all!

After yet another few year hiatus from modeling I decided it was time to start again!  This time building Academy's 1/72 scale Sopwith Camel out of the box.

For the parts of the plane which would be wooden I decided to try a new technique.  I first painted them Model Master Acrylic Wood with an Acrylic Gloss coat on top.  After they dryed, I used my X-Acto knife and cut lines in them (not deep) to act as the wood grain.  I then made a Brown Acrylic Wash and painted over the initial coat.  Some of the wash settled nicely into the lines I carved while also adding a darker tint to the initial wood color coat.

For the portion of the propeller that would be metal - I painted it Model Master Burnt Umber, and then applied a black wash followed by dry brushing Model Master Aluminum.

For the engine I also painted it Model Master Burnt Umber followed by an acrylic black wash and then dry brushing it with Model Master Aluminum.

Nice job on the wood, especially on something so small.
