Sir!

Maybe you can help us.

I'm looking for a tank trucks for Emhar kit from the Model Sellar 1/35 for diorama with Whippet (diorama with a broken tank)

But Model Cellar no longer produce them. Perhaps you have a few Model Sellar trucks? Just some pieces - only a few pieces will be enough to make a diorama.

Can I get them from you?

Regards!

Well I think I have this GB all to myself.Wink  Anyway, I think I'll call the Eindecker done.  It's been

a learning experience, which isin't a bad thing.  Obvious mistakes made but on the whole, it has

been an enjoyable project.  Here's some final pictures of the little beastie.  Thanks for looking.

Your comments and suggestions would be appreciated.  My apologies for the photography...not

my strong suit.

 

Cheers

Ernie

Ernie,

Fokker looks very nice indeed. Do like the prop. More rigging than you'd think on the Eindecker. (I just bought a Morane Saulnier and expect the same.) Are the turnbuckles these ritzy white metal things - they do look good.

Eric, Thanks for the comments.  I used .04mm tubes for the turnbuckles.

The rigging material is 2 lb monofiliment line.

If the GB sticks around I might make another kit. Roden has just introduced a 1914 Version of the Rolls Royce Armored Car - accurate for Lawrence of Arabia or British police in Ireland - whatever takes your fancy.

I am under correction, but I think the other WW1 BG is closed to new entries??

Anyway. The only other WW1 plane I built was the 1/72 Revell D-7. 

This little Roden Oeffag 153 1/72 is a real pain for me to build. It seems my eyes are not what they use to be and I find working with it is very fiddly.....but I will beat it into submition!

The kit has a very nice engine, the rest of the kit is OK'ish but the plastic seems rather soft with loads of flash. I am basically using it as a learning tool for later WW1 stuff.

Fuselarge fit is a little poor, the parts seem to be slightly warped.

Rigging this little monster is going to be "fun"!
