I think that pattern on the Aluminum parts was just hand-hammering the parts over a wooden buck. On a smaller-scale plastic model I just drew some squiggles and circles with a silver sharpie on the metal parts. I'm not sure that would work in 1/33 though.

Be it plastic or whatever Wayne, that looks like a very, very nice Eindecker! Chris,
don't worry so much about the silver. I'm going to try to do a cowling/burnishing tutorial in the next 2 days or so. I'll show you how I did my ersatz aluminuminum Seriously, it's as simple as a trip to the hardware store for a cheap can of paint.
Let the Scourge Begin!!!

Cool ides. I may try the metallic paper and silver sharpie route if I join the foray with a 1:72 Eindecker.

formers done and cockpit installed!

Everything fit together guite well. I had to make a couple of the slots a bit longer for everything to flush up and I have to trim the cockpit walls a bit shorter for some reason. I dont know how you guys cut out stuff as small as the yoke handle.... I tried twice and wrecked it both times. I ended up using my paper drill and made a 1.5 mm hole then used the 2.5 mm bit to make a donut that I squashed a bit worked well for me!

I used water color pencils for edge coloring. I am very happy with it. here is my main issue with it though... its WATERcolor. Glue is WATER based. Get a bit of glue on the parts you "painted" and its easy to spread it around.

I am particularly pleased with the edge coloring on the instrument panel - see how well it matched up with the color of the parts. I am thinking black here may have made a better deliniation on the panel though Also the last two pics show the thickened top of the fuselage. I showed a pic from the top to show how well the water colors matched up and I showed a pic from the bottom so you can see how well it covered.
Thanks
Chris

Coming along very nicely Chris. I don't think your skills are as rusty as you think.

Looks pretty good to me Chris. I gave up on the paper yoke and made one from wire.

building up quite nicely, Chris! The edge coloring is very good.
I'm following this as I'd like to start one of these. Didn't think I'd have time but...

Chris,

This is looking great thus far! ...nice clean build. Hey, I had a hard time with the yoke, too. I used a number 11 blade and chipped away at it. I have a big magnifying glass with a 60 watt bulb in it. Getting old is rough...I don't recommend it for the faint of heart.

Keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing more of yours.

Jeff
