I applied the decals and decided to do some dot filtering. I needed to tone down the white and add a dusty look overall. I still need to do the undersides then add a sealer before continuing with the weathering.

Thanks, Steve.  It looks really good.  It's been a long time since I tried that kind of camouflage.

Thanks D and Check.

Did you use an airbrush to accomplish it?

Yes, very thin paint, high pressure (the lower pressure, the more spitting with my AB) and very low paint flow. I'm adding decals today, there are just a few. I'm going to try to transport it back to Boise when I return in Sep for the Salt Lack City show. It'll also be safer there, there's not a lot of room at my brothers house for me to store my builds.

I thought about adding it to a dio with a Pz IV. While making a great looking dio, it would be too large for me to display.

Absolutely stunning work, Steve!  That is an extraordinary job with the camouflage!

Been watching this build, and realized I had not commented.  You are doing a great job on this kit, Steve.  The pit, the engine, camo...all top notch.  Been fun to watch!

Dwayne or Dman or just D.  All comments are welcome on my builds.

Thanks again Check,

I completed the camo and now am ready for the decals.

That is looking very sharp, Steve; great camouflage and cross.

Thanks Check,

I started the camo, and still need to do some more adjusting to the green but I forgot to paint the cross on the rudder, so I took care of that. I don't care for decals for something so simple.

That's a lot of very delicate looking work, Steve.  Nicly detailed engine, too.  Good work!

Check,

I added some brake lines and a few touch-up's are done. The fuse stripe and yellow under wingtips painted. Now comes the camo. I test fit the wings and it looks like I'm going to need to glue them down instead of leaving them removable for transport. Not a horrable thing but it will make it more difficult to move.

I started back on thhe Storch and added the belts. I also installed the canopy and I'm ready to install the gear and paint the yellow on the fuse.

Thank you Check.

I applied the sand color. I'm waiting for the belts to come in before I attach the canopy and complete the fuse, then I'll add the green and red camo.

I am leaving for Boise on the 15th for 2 weeks. If I get the belts in before then I'll put them together and install them. I'll be back on Aug 1st and get back to this.

I added all the little bits to the wings. Once everything dries I'll spray a little more light blue (RLM-76) to the underside. Once that's done I'll spray the sand yellow and camo on the wings and finish installing the slats and flaps. The kit's wings look like they were designed to be removed for transport which is fantastic, so I'll finish them up before moving on to the fuse. The huge canopy comes with masks which is also fantastic. So far this has been a great and enjoyable build.

It's good stuff. I've been using it for modeling plastic and wood for 20 years. It's never let me down as far as quality.

Good to hear.  I just bought some Bob Smith superglue when I got some varied types to try out.

I use Bob Smith Industries thick and thin. I buy the large refills from eBay and they last for years. I use the same bottles and just need to replace the nozzles on occasion.

Thanks for the information, Steve.  Some of the CA I've gotten lately hasn't worked so well; might have got hold of old stock.

Very nice, Steve.  Going together very well.

What kind of glue/cement are you using for these fiddly pieces?

I got the interior in, halves together and engine installed. I need to hook up a few more random hoses, linkages and tubes to make it look plausable.

Sure can, Steve.  I've updated the build roster to reflect the Fieseler.

That's a very delicate, fragile-looking aircraft.
