  1. This is more of a notice of intention at the moment, as I want to finish the Muromets before getting involved in anything else. I have decided on my next build, and as I have also decided to repaint the roundals on the Muromets, I want something to do while waiting for the previous colour to dry enough to be masked. A little reasearch and parts clean up fits the bill, so here is what I'm starting with. The HR Models Pup is a really nice kit. The detail is well moulded and crisp. The decals let it down a little as the blue is far too light, but that's easily remedied. So here are the standard sprue shots..... I think most 1:72 scale modellers are familiar with Revell's Triplane. My kit has new decals which are very nicely done, but the kit does need some work..... The fuselage will be reskinned on the cockpit sides and on the rear decking to give a better rendition of the ribbing under the fabric. I will be using an Aeroclub engine (if it fits!), prop and Vickers gun, and either my own 3d printed wheels or the spare set from the Pup kit, I haven't looked closely at them yet to see if they will work. The cowling will also need some work to open up the vents and add a little more depth to it, and the struts may be modified and used, or scratchbuilt...again I need to look a little closer at what I have. The tail surfaces will probably be scratchbuilt, the undercarriage definitely will be! And then there are the ejector pin marks.... See you soon! Ian
  2. Here's a health and safety warning .... "This thread contains images some viewers may find disturbing" Ignore this warning at your peril if you want to reach the end of this thread without feeling the need to vent your anger in any way, shape or form, particularly if you are an ardent Wingnut Wings fan or a rivet counter. This is an RFI of the WNW kit that is much sought after yet is no longer in production, but ... * It is by a distinctly average model builder of WW1 aircraft - in fact any type of model * It does not incorporate the use of turnbuckles - sacrilege to many for a kit of this scale - but it has been rigged - inside and out * It is brush painted (in a mixture of enamels and acrylics) and never been anywhere near an airbrush * It bears some resemblance to the aircraft it depicts - the person I built it for, SWMBO, is not concerned with historical accuracy * It has not been weathered to near death and destruction in the interests of "realism" * It was built for the pleasure of building a kit (I know, a bit odd these days) and not the masochism that accompanies the need to be 100% accurate to the last stitch and the desperate need for approval and inclusion. End of health warnings. So why have I posted this then? Well, it's because despite all of the above, it's a model, it's my hobby and I can. And there may be some of you who like it and it might bring a smile to your day. Okay, for those of you still with me, this is my version of N500, the prototype Sopwith Triplane - the aircraft that is replicated in the Great War Display Team and based at White Waltham airfield. Should you wish to replicate, or avoid replicating, the CDL effect is Precision Paints' Mid-Sandstone enamel, the wood-effect is Humbrol Wood base layer with artist acrylic browns of various shades layered over the top, metal is Humbrol rattle can aluminium, rigging is Albion Alloys silver-nickel wire for support struts and knit-in elastic thread coloured by felt pen for the control wires. Decals are from the kit. Vallejo matt varnish finish, but wing undersides were left with a glossy Klear finish to mimic the reflective dope finish it wore in real life (okay so I did look something up). Oh yes, the spots on the engine cowling were applied by a "Pilot Super Color" pemanent (silver) ink pen (which dries without the need for a protective varnish finish). So how did it turn out ... Comments welcome as ever. Viewers who have been affected by the images shown in this thread may wish to see more at here.
  3. We've just received the December 2012 releases from Wingnut Wings, and a pretty impressive bunch they are too. Three... yes, THREE Fokker D.VIIs, from the home of the Fokker (Fok), Johannisthal (Alb) and Schneidemühl (OAW - Ostdeutsche Albatros Werke) with any of their idiosyncrasies faithfully reproduced. Not only, but also... a Sopwith Triplane and this year's final surprise release from WNW, the Hannover C1.II with its distinctive biplane tail. In addition to those five releases, there are four additional decal sets. One for the Fok built aircraft, one for the Alb built aircraft, and two for the OAW built aircraft. Each one contains five colourful options, just in case the kit options don't float your boat. We'll be crafting detailed reviews of them just as soon as we can, and have a new reviewer that is knowledgable on the subject of WWI aircraft, and just happens to be an excellent modeller too. Please join me in welcoming John, also known as Viking on Britmodeller to the reviewing cadre. A couple of quick pics on the lounge rug this lunch time seemed to be in order In the meantime, if you just can't wait and want to find out a little more info, you'll find all the featured releases at WNW's website, here Mike.
