  1. An odd title, you may think. It's inspired by the car stickers one used to see, usually on decaying old rust-buckets, that stated "My other car is a Ferrari/Rolls-Royce/Cadillac/" etc. Anyway, I had a Wingnut Sopwith Pup, a figure by Elan13 of an RFC pilot called "Henry" who is depicted holding a small spaniel-type dog, and a career that involved working and living in Gosport for nearly 10 years, and all this came together in this model. The subject is a Sopwith Pup from the School of Special Flying, Gosport, where Major Robert Smith-Barry developed a system of flying training that produced far better results than previously, and is basically still in use world-wide to this day. The markings are an option in the "Gnome" boxing of WNW's Pup, although I only used the fuselage roundels, serials, prop logo and instruments from the kit decal sheet: everything else was masked and painted. Anyway, without further ado, here's Henry "Sorry old boy, even at my rank I'm not allowed to take you flying" Forgive me for having a play with some effects in one or two of these photos: Thanks for looking. Comments and any suggestions for improvement welcome.
  2. Hallo This is my next project. The funny looking RE.8 from WNW. Since this model requires some skill for rigging, it is the perfect challenge for me. I did already the R.A.F. B.E.2c in 1/48 some time ago. Anyway, I am looking forward what this build will offer to me. In any case, I like this challenge in rigging. The DH 2 from WNW is ahead (from Roden already done) and also the Bristol Fighter. The Fe.2b is already done. You can see it under RIP some time ago. Happy modelling
  3. Hallo This is one of my British a/c from WW1 from WNW. As for so many kits from WNW, the instruction is not quite accurate. The same will accompany now at the next build, the RE.8 and afterward the F2b Bristol Fighter. You may also have a look on my WIP. All insignia are sprayed. Happy Modelling
  4. Hallo This is my next (after many) WNW kit. The Dh 9a is a quite big and powerful a/c. Well, I built so far quite straight from the box. Seatbelts are waiting for tomorrow. Nothing special. As you see, I lost one dial. It is replaced in meantime. Happy modelling
  5. Hallo Now I finished my Dolphin. The rigging was unspectacular. One of the holes in the struts to get the struts rigged, vanished due to plastic glue. But in general nice built. See my WIP. Next will be the DH 9a from WNW. Happy modelling
  6. Hallo Yesterday I had a nightmare with my new ICM Ju-88 kit. All wrong to the outmost and awful engineered. After this shock, I took a deep breath and considered what to do next! I decided to take any Wing Nut Wing in my shelf. I have enough at my storage, including a Gotha, which I may get at my birthday, as far as my wife keeps her promise. So it will be the Dolphin. Nice kit, nice working and today I did plastic work. Tomorrow I have to spray. I am not sure about doing the internal rigging or not. I am little afraid to destroy or weaken the framework when drilling 0,3 mm. Well, for spraying I want to make masks and to try to avoid decals. At least for roundels. We will see. Happy modelling
  7. This is my first WnW I'm losing the will to live ! Every time I get close to posting submission it all gets lost!!!!! Above the obnoxious join. The rear cockpit spit in two down the midline. The whole of the wood grain area sanded back and restarted. A new wood varnish applied, watercolour pencils Tamya clear orange. The rest of the inside was completed. And then joined. With masking tape in place to complete the exterior of the nacelle but with a bit of imagination and the previous photos you can imagine the result OK in my eyes.
  8. A Wingnut Wings WWI aircraft build is always a cosmic nirvana modeling experience. This is my fourth WNW build, the excellent two seater Roland C.IIa "late", also known as the "Whale". My wife gave me this gift about six years ago for Xmas so she was especially enthusiastic and supportive during this build. She picked the kit out for me because she thought it was "cute", lucky for me her "cute" = my "awesome"! Other than EZ line and Bob's Buckles for rigging, it's pretty much OOB. Tamiya acrylic paints were used per the instructions except for a slight amount of Alclad aluminum and brass in the engine area. I built version 'A' of the kit's five options, ("Kasta 2/ Kogohl 1, 1917) in which WNW guessed at some color and feature aspects so I deviated a little here and there. As always with WNW, everything fit perfectly and the finished product comes out much better than my skills should allow. Too bad WNW shut down. Despite the crazy price escalation of these kits on eBay, I refuse to not build the remaining WNW kits in my stash. Life is too short and I'd rather have a bunch of dusty built models than unbuilt $$$ kits when I'm too blind and feeble to even separate the parts from the runners or spend the money on other things that wouldn't be as fun (other than good Irish Whiskey ). Cheers, John
  9. Hi folks, first for a while... Thanks for looking, J.A.
  10. I built this model several years ago and finally girded myself to finish the rigging yesterday. It's my first Wingnut Wings kit and I loved every minute of building it. I used the resin conversion kit from Encore to modify the cockpit. I think it was designed for the Roden kit but it seemed to fit really well on this. The decals and resin figure were from the same Encore package. The colour is too dark and I won't show you the bottom because of rigging glue mess I also chickened out of using double wires. But it's the most complicated rigging I've done yet and was great practice for an MVR Albatross that's on the block next.
  11. This was a pure pleasure from start to finish. I used the recent MVR boxing for this build and one of the schemes from the kit. It's rigged with ezline without turnbuckles. The plywood was my favourite part, I sprayed the panels three different acrylic colours, then used thinned oil paints to wiggle the grain on. It's the first ww1 airplane model I've done that I haven't been embarrassed to show the underside. I'll post more pictures of the figure in the Figure modelling section.
  12. I just finished building a Wingnut Wings Albatross and this resin figure was included in the kit. Mike Good, wow, what a sculptor. I made a little hat for him out of green stuff and styrene. Painted with vallejo acrylics with oils on the jacket and boots. The base is meant to reference German WW1 laminated propellers, I made it from yew and pine.
  13. I'm hoping one of you smart folks can help me understand a fit problem on the Wingnut Wings MVR kit. It seems that the photoetch seatbelts in this box are quite different from those in the other boxings. The cross belt is so high that the ends can't reach their mounts on the rear bulkhead. In other kits the cross belt is much lower. Page 5 of the kit instructions show no cross belt on the shoulder belt assembly. So should I cut out the offending belt section and replace with masking tape? Or should I relocate the mounting holes on the bulkhead? I've emailed WNW but was hoping to work on this this weekend.
  14. I started with painting the fuselage CDL bits. I`ve sprayed them with XF-57 mixed with brown and white, in order to make them less uniform. I`ve also tried something new - I wanted to give the texture to the painted CDL, so using the crayons I`ve simulated the fabric weave.
  15. I am building a WnW USAS Camel with the 160 HP engine and am getting to the end of painting. I thought this would be a simple question to answer, but I can't figure out where the exhaust (and the associated staining) for a rotary engine should go. I know the whole engine rotates, so I assume the exhaust just blows straight into the engine bay, but where does it go? Looking at the cowl there are two square ports that could be vents other wise there is the large hole at the bottom. This is a first WW1 build for me, so any advice from the Britmodeller community would be great. Many Thanks Yeoman

  22. Hello, I`m starting another project, I`m going to use the Aviattic`s PC10 and CDL decals for the beastie. More pics soon. Here`s my inbox review of them (in Polish) if anyone`s interested: http://www.kfs-miniatures.com/
  23. Glad to get this one out of the way to be honest - not the kit's fault of course, but I made such a hash of fitting the top wing that I ended up having to replace the cabane struts with metal pieces cut from one of those big thick paper clips. I think it was pride more than anything else that forced me to finish it, although I've just noticed I haven't braced the landing gear yet.... Regards, J A.
  24. My first experience with the Wingnut Wings kit is finished and I must admit it was a pure joy! I`ve used TaurusModels engine goodies and my own hand-carved propeller with a resin hub by ProperPlane. Painted mostly with Tamiya acrylics.
  25. Just got back from overseas to join the fun. I know I still have lots of unfinished stuff to complete, but I just can't resist in not participating in this historic GB. I will tackle my first Wingnut Wings kit, but chickened out from rigging by choosing the Junkers D.1 A latecomer in the Great War with only 40 built, it was a revolutionary design for its time. The aircraft I am building was one of five abandoned at Hombeek in Belgium and discovered by the Allied inspection team in January 1919. It is speculated that this aircraft did see action before the Armistice. The Wingnut Wing kit looks very nice and I hope I will do it justice. But as I am a bit of a resin junky, I will use some detailing sets. Mainly to enhance the engine as I intend to keep the side panels open. I keep my fingers crossed to finish this build within the 16 weeks. Cheers, Peter
