Description

 

I am proud to present my first gallery entry on hyperscale, my recently finished 1/32 scale SE.5a Hisso from Wingnut Wings.

This is my second WWI model after Wingnuts marvelous LVG VIC. The built went straight forward without any major problems. I used selfmade turnbuckles from silver wire with 0.15mm transparent monofil fibre for the rigging.

 

 

For painting the wooden interior I used Tamiyas XF 55, sealed with future. I imitated the wooden texture with burnt sienna and umbra oilpaints. For the wooden appearence of the two types of propellers, I used also different oilpaints, i.e. english red. While the rigging was the thing i feared the most, I found it more difficult to thin the cowling in order to get it removable from the finished model to present the Hisso-Engine.

I choose the later wooden landing gear just because of aesthetic reasons, while the original D351 "4" 6th Training Sqn AFC had the steely gear. I also choose to leave the cowling in bare metal by using Alclad II colours because of the intensive contrast to the PC 10 colour, which is from "JPS Color" in Germany.

I am very satisfied with the detail and the appearance of the model, especially its complexity in the case of rigging and the wiring of the control cables. I hope you like my SE.5a and will try to publish my LVG VI as soon as possible.
