The 1/48 Hansa-Brandenburg
D.I was built oob from the Eduard 1/48 kit. The struts were a mess, look close
and you will see why. All pe parts for hatches etc. were covered with tin solder
to represent bare metal. The cowling and the gun container were covered with Bare
Metal Foil for the same effect. The foil was toned down on the sheet with steel
wool. The wood effect on the fuselage was achieved with several oil paints which
were painted over a acrylic base. The oil paint was put on undiluted and removed
with a stiff brush. The grain effect is very subtle and not quite visible on these
pictures. All weathering was also done with oils. All decals are from Eduard.
The machine should represent 28.33, flown by Brumowski, Fiala and Arigi at Flik
41/J. Various newer sources shows all outer triangles in black, the red triangle
seems to be a misinterpretation.
