Dewoitine D.510 - Answer [gallery]

Hi,
I want to show You one of my newest model - Dewoitine D.510 from Answer publisher. Author of the kit is known Marek Pacynski, scale 1:33. Here is the cover:



First - some words about the kit. Bottom parts of the plane are done on metallic paper - looks really nice. Model has not to detailed cockpit - that is Marek idea - hovewer rest of the plane is much more complicated than looks. It can be built using two timbers - I did it as usually with one. Some thing are interesting done - like cowling or tail - it's hard to describe it well in english - but like this new ideas. Marek planned this in special way to hide some connections - the same way he used in his newest kit RWD-14 B Czapla. I recommend this kit to you - everything fits perfect, theme is interesting (to me), plane has rare but nice shape (besides it was important plane in French army before war), all is printed very nice.

About my model - well - that's not the high end at all. I tried new technique with "Super glue" to hide connections, but still have a lot to learn about this. Used some weathering pigments (dry - without water) to make it all in my expected way. It was varnished (with simply brush) as usually - first with Humbrol - satin or matt - it doesn't matter (oil varnish), then with acrylic varnish that lets to make it more or less satin. Sorry about poor photos - couldn't make better and now model has gone as a gift so this must be enough.

More photos you can find on my site - be my guests!

Thank you Norm - flaps aren't movable. What cannot be seen on those poor photos are tiny scratches made on wings and nearby.

Regards,

Hi Friends,

thank you for those kind words.

Something about varnishing - Norm - I do not use any glaze. Please see that surface isn't shining too much - less than my Spad XIII. I tried to get facture of metal - not hard varnished canvas like in Spad.

Yes - I varnish most my model (except those from printer like USS Los Angeles). Just like getting them more real, more like planes. Method is quite easy - when I have fuselage, wings, stibilizers use one of those great varnishes:



Strongly reccomend them to all modellars - due to it's special abilites quite different to simple varnish - using simply brush gives good effects (hovever air brush is always the best...). When I want clear matt surface then one of them is enough. But generally use them to impregnate cartoon what lets me use those acrylic varnishes:



Thanks to them I can get more or less (it depends on how much watered they are) shining surface. Please see my report from building Spad XIII where I changed the surface several times in this way. Using only oli varnish sometimes is not enough - surface after some time of work (constantly keeping in hand) is getting darken and gluey (!). Acrylic varnish make it strong and hard - besides helps to operate of the glaze of the surface. Sometimes I use simply varnish dedicated to wood, that is more shining:



- but generally varnishes dedicated to modellar job have special abilites that cannot be undone. Please remember do NOT use acrylic varnish on simply paper and do a lot of experiments first - not on the model at once...

That's only one of the several methods - some of them I described in two long articles in "Kartonowy Fan" (unfortunatelly only one edition was published - that's the market way...). Hope that somebody will get something for his own works.
