  1. Guys, as my Duck has come to a rest due to some parts went into orkus, so I need something in between, until the parts will arrive. Or maybe more, as I'm afraid I've lost a bit of rhythm in the Duck build, due to some work issues and consequently long breaks, so maybe some pause from that will turn healthy. As for this I will return a bit more on my homeground of WWI biplanes, and now it's for some classics as well. And I plan not to do only one, but two fishnets at once. Here's what's on the bench, waiting for some paint and glue: It's the Sopwith 1½ Strut

  5. I had tried a number of planes in 1/144, some were styrene and some were vacform and I fancied building one of these wee Sopwith Pups for quite a while. There are two kits in the box. The artwork on the box: The kit. There's not a lot of it but looks rather nice, even has some PE: IP and seat glued in and fuselage zipped up. Wings, engine and cowling currently held on with Blue Tack for effect: More to follow soon.
  6. Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin C3799 Capt. Irving Today I finished my third model this year: a Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin created from the fantastic Copper State Models 1/48 kit. This was a looong running project, started in 2018, but paused also due to participation of an Group Build. My entry (Fokker D.VII) was awarded with two sets of Pheon decals, so I changed my plan to the blue Dolphin C3799 of Capt. Irving. This was the Premium edition of the kit, so it has a resin engine and metal exhausts. Beside the Pheon decals I used RAF wire terminals, turnbuckles, Vickers and Lewis MGs fro

  8. The Snark am experimental triplane using the ill fated ABC Dragonfly engine. Three machines were built this is the third prototype. Side by side with my scratch built Pfalz Dr1, imagine if these two had seen service. With my scratchbuilt Pup, surprisingly big for a triplane. The WIP thread.

  11. Morning All, For this build I'll be attempting my first aircraft for 20+ years and my first ever biplane! Yes I will be rigging it! I have chosen the Airfix Sopwith Pup as I have had this in the stash for at least 20 years, making it a top three contender for oldest stash resident. This was a blister carded issue - I've mislaid the card (with the instructions) so will add this in if I find it.

  12. Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin Copper State Models 1/48 It was a pleasant and a rather short build (due to good fit) and I must admit, I really enjoyed it. It depicts the Dolphin C4168 of Major J.C. Callaghan, CO of 87 Sqn, Spring 1918 Painted with Tamiya and Mr.Color, artistic oils. Rigging: EZ Line and fishing line. For any 1/48th scale lovers - highly recommended.
  13. Sopwith F.1 Camel 'The Duellists' 1:32 Wingnut Wings The long awaited series of 1:32 Sopwith Camels finally started to arrive towards the end of March 2017, with no less than six different boxings. Five of them are individual kits covering Bentley, le Rhone, and Clerget powered variants, with another for the 2F.1 'Ships Camel', and finally a United States Air Services boxing. The Sixth boxing is 'The Duellists' vesrion shown above, containing a Clerget Camel and an LVG C.VI, depicting an actual event that took place on 9th October 1918. The LVG was brought down
  14. Here is my interpretation of the Sopwith Triplane, my first in this scale. I doff my hat to Ian, aka @limeypilot who's own WIP gave me a lot of pointers and inspiration so that I can complete this bird. The cockpit was all but scratch-built, kit MG replaced with a Miniworld Vickers MG...very nice. Fuselage tail lengthened, kit axle replaced with a scratch-built variant. Underside painted with Humbrol Linen enamel, I thought was too yellow, so I'll change that for the future. Topside was painted using Tamiya Khaki Drab, a good colour I think for a PC10 finish. Kit decals. The tiniest of PE cont
  15. I`ve resumed one project that has been sitting in a box for quite a while. This is what I`ve managed to do so far. Notice the exquisite metal exhausts and a very good resin engine, which can be turned into a true gem by a much-gifted modeller than myself. I`ve sprayed my mixture of PC 10 and Battleship Grey (based on Tamiya`s Ocean Grey and Olive Drab). The fit is perfect.

  17. Just finished up this little gem of a kit, the new CSM Dolphin. Easily on par with the best of Eduard, Roden, etc. A few minor tweaks to make it my own, most notably the painted markings for No.1 Canadian Air Force Squadron, Ca. early 1919. Full build review to appear in an upcoming issue of Military Illustrated Modeller magazine.
  18. Following on from my 1/72 scale WW1 fighters, I decided to up the scale a little with this kit that I found for £12.50. Hope you like it, still learning but starting to get a little better.

  20. Hi. Finished build numero 7! This has been an EPIC, personal build and TOTALLY beyond me skills wise. I guess thats why its taking me so long. My grandfather was a pilot in WW1 and this is the plane he flew and, unfortunately crashed in to an orchard. He survived! In fact he didn’t pass away until the early 80’s. There aren’t many pictures of the plane but some are featured on the Wingnut Wings website. I didn’t go down the whole turn buckle route with the rigging, don’t have the eyes for that but i did the best i could. And hopefully my dad will like it, as its his fathers day present. Hope y

  22. This is my first proper post on here and looking at some of the work on show, I can't help but feel a little daunted. More so for the fact that I haven't made a plastic model kit for about 30yrs. I do make Scratch built ships that I set up with RC to sail on the lake, but having two young boys has brought me back to my childhood passion, for their benefit entirely of course I decided that my first foray back would be a cheap and simple kit that I could practice on. I do like WW1 aircraft as they had great character so I picked up a Revell 1:72 Sopwith Camel and intended to do it straight
  23. Hello, First, excuse me for my mistake english, i am writing from France. I want to build the Cpt Arthur Roy Brown’s plane. Brown who is a possible candidate to have involved in the Manfred Von Richtofen’s death. Here are the photograph of the men and the plane (find on the net) : « Rentrons dans le vif du sujet » !, Here is the work i made on the two alf parts of fuselage: I completed the structure behind the seats with squarred plastic profiles. I used aluminium alclad painds for the metallics parts, the fabrics parts are paint in Gunze H85 and the wood par
  24. 1/32 Sopwith Triplane. Correcting the Roden Kit With the Wingnut Wings SopwithTriplane kit having long since sold out, the only game in town is the Roden offering. Hannants had them on special offer recently, so I was tempted and purchased one. There is one major problem with the kit however, and that is that the fuselage is too short by about 6 mm. I believe it was Rowan Broadbent of Pheon Decals, John Adams of Aeroclub, and Brian Fawcet who originally brought this to attention, and Brian offers his own resin fuselage correction set. Here If you have a Roden kit and want to
  25. Sopwith Triplane. 1/32 Roden. The Sopwith Triplane was developed from the Sopwith Pup, but was built in relatively small numbers. Despite being a highly successful fighter it's front line service life was also comparatively short. It was difficult to service and maintain, and was never adopted by the Royal Flying Corps, with service being restricted to the RNAS ans one French squadron. The Roden kit has been around for a while and was bettered by the Wingnut Wings kit in 2012. Unfortunately the Wingnuts kit sold out very quickly, meaning that if
