Modeler Tom Grigat’s latest stop-motion video captures the assembly of Special Hobby’s Lloyd C.V Series 46 model kit in 1/72 scale.

The original aircraft’s plywood paneling was represented with wood grain decals from Uschi van der Rosten over brown accentuated paint from Alclad II. The rigging material is rubber thread (Uschi van der Rosten) fixed with eyelets and turnbuckles made with rods and tubes from Albion Alloys.

For his latest stop motion assembly video, modeler Tom Grigat tackles Artesanía Latina’s new 1/16 structure kit of the Fokker Dr.1.

The kit is said to be museum quality, boasting wood and injected metal parts, cockpit details and multimedia instructions with video tutorials and more than 600 photos. The completed model spans 17.72”W x 14.17”L x 7.24”H and includes an optional methacrylate engraved stand for display.

Tom reports that it was “relatively easy to build and well guided,” stating that his new video shows “how appr. 750 pieces of metal and wood could be combined to a beautiful aircraft model.” Click below to check it out.

Modeler extraordinaire Tom Grigat has returned with a new stop motion video which details the construction of Special Hobby’s 1/48 Pfalz E.I in the most entertaining way possible.

Tom reports that the model is painted mostly with Alclad II metallic and milspecs colors while rigging components were sourced from Uschi van der Roste (rubber thread) and Albion Alloys (different tubes).

Prior to the outbreak of WW1, Pfalz produced Morane-Saulnier monoplanes under license, and the E.I’s design was heavily influenced by these French machines. The aircraft entered service in 1915 equipped with a single synchronized machine gun and went on to see service in Europe and the Middle East.
