I am currently working on the Roland D.VIa kit. I will probably do Emil Koch’s black and white striped scheme, although I have’t quite decided. I’m at the stage where I can begin painting, so this is a small hold up.

Some photos of the build progress. I detailed the 200 bhp Mercedes engine with plugs, ignition wiring and paint detail. The next Wingnut Wings Mercedes will get the same treatment along with additional plumbing.

Cockpit framing, flight componenets, MG ammo feeds and empty belt bin, fuel tank and engine mounted in the bay.

Making sure of a tight fit.

Fuselage closed. Ready for paint after drilling out rigging and control wire points.
