I just thought for those interested I would post some images of how the camo scheme for the Staggerwing came out using all the advice given on the forum page. It is now ready for some weathering and decals which I should start tonight. Any comments welcome. I'll post finished shots when done in the next couple of days.

Regards

Andrew

Thanks Bruce,

I'll be at Expo on the Saturday and then Sunday arvo. With what, I haven't yet decided.

I have just finished the final construction (minus the wiring between the upper and lower wings). The colouring appears lighter due to the flash and from the images I have of this a/c it seems as though it was definately lighter than that of A39-1. This may have something to do with fading. Anyway, here it is completed. It is the old Esci 1/48 Staggerwing G17S converted back to D17 specs. This a/c served with 2 and 3 Communications flight before being transferred to the DCA. At some stage it was either scrapped or had its flying surfaces removed for shipping.

Regards

you've captured the distinct demarcation of the upper surface camouflage colours very well.

The Staggerwing has to be my all time favourite biplane after the venerable DH82 Tiger Moth.

Cheers
