SCRATCHBUILT DEWOITINE D.510 in 1:48 scale
Posted by Foz on Sunday, February 04, 2018 7:54 AM

Hi to all!

  After 2 months (on and off) of working on this Dewoitine D.510 I would like to show you the end result.

  I built this in 1:48 scale from balsa wood and plastic and it depicts a D.510 ....serial number 166 from Escadrille 3C2 of Aeronavale.

  I don't normally scratch build at this small scale but have to say that I enjoyed every second even though it was very challenging!

Here are some photos...........

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you like the photos!...and thanks for taking a look!:)

 

Cheers

Looks great!

When I got started in modeling, it was before plastic, so scale model kits (non-flying, static scale) were blocks of balsa wood, sometimes sawn to profile view, and the plans gave you cross section drawings to cut out and make templates for the carving.  I still scratch one now and then for subjects I can't find a kit for. I find carving wood a real stress reliever. One of those things where your hands and nervous system just take over and your thoughts wander onto whatever, while your hands continue to carve .

I know exactly what you mean Don!...working with wood is very therapeutic!... model making has changed beyond recognition today!I have a distaste for aftermarket stuff that one can buy for the model your making...completely taking away your imagination for having a go at actually making the part yourself!...all to do with making money of course! I have and do make the occasional kit but nothing is more satisfying than to scratch build your own model

Actually, I use a lot of aftermarket stuff on my scratchbuilds.  I hate vacuforming canopies, and things like props and wheels are just to hard to do to be  worth it.
