Unique build in progress!

Along with our "Most Memorable dioramas and unique builds" I would like to propose another "sub-thread" that would showcase talent in progress. One of our modest new members here is "naimbs" apparently a younger French student and I found him working on a unique approach to the Roden kit.

Please see his inprogress report at;
http://www.master194.com/forumww1/vi...er=asc&start=0

Possibly he would share his thoughts with us if we encourage him.

This is a very impressive build! No novice to modeling by any means! Thanks for the link, although it makes me wish I had tried harder in High School French Class

Very impressive so far. A novice like me can surely learn from this young lad's talents. May I offer up a link that will help translate the French.

Hi

Thank you very much I am flattered.

The fuselage is made in plastic section of 0.8mm with a plan WD . Much patience but it is realizable with method. It is just necessary to take its time and to be irritated. It is the first time that I make this type of work and it is interessant for me because I learns from the new techniques

A très bientôt

Hi

I surrounded the zones which will pose a problem to me... the adjustment is done in the pain!! ... It is really a difficult zone of the kit Roden!





I think that there was to be round sections behind the plate avoids fire of the engine... I will put them even if I am not on bus on the level of solidity that will be easier for the continuation when must be put the higher wing...

Thank you has Edmond, scimitar théo and Philippe who justify me and advises me throughout this assembly with their councils on rittmeister194 forum

A très bientôt

Hello

Work on the cap in front of the pilot or places the spandau... Thus I started by eliminating what was supposed to represent the supports of weapons etc... I began one of both spandau in order to be able to make dummy trials in order to remake their supports on the structure in evergreen...



I preferred stuck the section of evergreen for the continuation of the structure on the part directly, because it is simpler for the adjustment



I am sorry for the quality of the photographs

A bientôt

Hello

A little work on this model. The seat which will have to be furnished a little because that made strange without cushion.



Beginning of work on the floor, in plastic chart.... it is still necessary to refine the holes. The Part floor is very beautiful but it do not have broad enough for this transformation... damage...



I seek has to remake tiny the parts being useful for the internal staying (ringed of red). it is not easy . How would make to represent that ?



Any remarks and councils are welcome

A bientôt

Naimbs
