Another Albatros update

I painted the undersides with a 1:1 of Tamiya XF-23 and XF-2 then masked off the wing ribs with tape cut into 1mm wide strips;

I  lightened the mix again and sprayed in between the ribs then removed the tape;

Hopefully it gives the effect of  fabric stretched over wing ribs (it looks better than the camera phone shows it anyway).
I have to mask the undersides next then spray the camouflage scheme on the upper wing surfaces, once done I’ll try to get the top wing on without destroying the model :o)

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 48 years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
