AerodromeRC Fokker D.VII - Pictorial build thread

I will not write much about how the building of this plane is done. As the prototype thread is a very good source for that: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=176430

This is more of a "picture update" thread, as the kit differs from the prototype in a few places.

This is how far I have come. And I'm now in the process of choosing paintscheme, which I have. See picture.

Does anybody know which OAW version this is? As I have to make the right cowl sides for the right version.

The Albatros Publications Fokker D.VII anthology Vol.1 (p.61) has a photo of Ltn. Ernest Riedel sitting on the wheel of this plane. It's a 3/4 on shot and shows some of the port side louvers on the cowl. The original Datafile on the D.VII (#9) has drawings of the OAW cowl panels.

I've made some slow progress during the last few weeks. The woodwork is complete and I have started covering it. I'm using SoLite which will be dulled down with Prymol and then spraypainted.
Does anybody have any experience with Prymol? Since this is the first time I am going to do this, how do I use it?

I have also been trying to print Lozenge pattern on Litespan using a inkjet printer to make it easier for me, but with no luck. So I will most likely have to paint it .

All I have done is take a wad of tissue from the bathroom, soak it in prymol and wipe it over the solite.

Ther is a tendency for it to sag and sag again when painted. Heat guns work though until the paint has completely set...I ended up drying the paint with a heat gun
