  1. Hello Pete, I have used the AK interactive paints and they are very good. Have a practice on an old model with the foil I think you will find it good to work with. If the foil is laid in different directions and is polished to varying degrees it produces different colours of the aluminium foil. Andrew.
  2. Hello Glatisant, I think this is a case of not knowing it was something difficult to do! Ignorance is a a great motivator. The foil is easy to work with and can be cut with a new scalpel blade using the recessed panel lines of the kit. It is delicate once it is on and care must be taken when applying weathering (ask me how I know). It can be easily weathered with chalk pastels. Andrew
  3. Hi Joachim, and thanks for the information and I know you are correct but I do find it very difficult to fill detail in. Andrew.
  4. Thanks, the foil does need to be put on a perfectly finished model - which this isn’t and it is wrinkly in some areas. I think I could do better next time I was thinking of a jet subject next but haven’t decided which one? Probably one of the early American century jets but I am not sure. I could look at what Chuck Yeager flew after the Second World War. Thanks Steve.
  5. https:// I have tried the Bare Metal Foil Aluminium on this one. First time have used it and it was interesting to see what difference it made to put the foil on in different directions and the difference varying amount of polishing of different areas made. Andrew
  6. Tips for first WW1 build

    Hi Dennis, just a note about the cost of WNW kits. I agree that they are very expensive and you could buy a lot of other kits for the price of one of these. I look at a WNW kit as the equivalent of 2 or even 3 of other makes of kit with the added bonus that Wing Nuts do fit exceptionally well and are very well researched with an excellent choice of decals. If you purchase the right one you can even avoid rigging, although if taken slowly the rigging can be enjoyable too! Have a go Dennis!! Andrew.

    Martinsyde G100 Elephant would be good.

    Ok so the planning meeting went with the vote for the Dolphin at Wingnuts! A Dolphin is great subject but I wouldn’t have thought it was the top the list?
  12. How do I post Pictures?

    I am all Apple so it is just a matter of making it work. Thanks for the help, Andrew.
  13. How do I post Pictures?

    Thanks Vinnie I only have an I phone on which I take the photos, and post onto the site. I have cobbled together a process that seems to work which does not appear to have a logical explanation but hey! It works.

    Just to prove it wasn’t a fluke!
