  1. Hallo again This is my Roland D.VIb in 1/32: Happy modelling
  2. Hallo again This is my Pfalz D.XII in 1/32 Happy modelling
  3. Hallo again: Here please is my DFW C.V in 1/32: Happy modelling
  4. 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/
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. Just trying to plumb the experience of some more experienced modellers here: I'm currently approaching the decaling stage of a WNW Pfalz DIIIa, my first. I figured this one would be a gentle start rather than attempt the other dozen WNW kits which I have gathering dust in my ever expanding stash, and I was correct - it's gone together very nicely (and any and all mistakes are solely my own!). My question is this: I realise that WNW themselves advise against using any setting solutions in favour of using a hair-dryer, but is that entirely necessary? I used Micro- family solutions for the smaller decals - cockpit etc. - without any adverse effects (so as a very limited test there seems to be no issue), and I have never found Cartograf decals to be anything but tolerant of these solutions (with aircraft of other eras). Frankly I'd feel more comfortable using these solutions instead of risking using a hair-dryer (risk being relative, but I've never used the WNW recommended method before). Has anyone else gone rogue and used my proposed technique, or will it all end in tears if I push on? Any suggestions or cautionary tales are eagerly sought. SAS
  9. Unveiled at Nuremberg. Release date TBA. http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=66844
  10. Building The Wingnut Wings AEG G.IV late in 1.32 KLP Publishing Online publishing is now starting to find its way into the modelling community. KLP Publishing is one of the new online publishers, specialising in eBooks for the scale aircraft modelling community. Following on from their first two Special Build series of books this is now their first Build Guide. Written by expert modeller Karim Bibi, this 167-page digital book takes you through building the impressive WNW 1/32 scale AEG G.IV Late kit. The book shows you the building, painting, decalling, and weathering techniques used to produce this stunning model. The book also includes a 29-page special tutorial on painting wood-grain effects on propellers, and includes a 12-page tutorial on the rigging. The book features a 12-page walkaround of the Mercedes D.IVa engine used on the AEG G.IV, and a bonus chapter features some documentation on the engine. Conclusion This is the type of publication that the new digital publishing will embrace. The subject is not main stream enough for a traditional publication. This is clearly a book written by modellers for modellers. The text is clear and concise and the great selection of walkaround pictures crisp. The build photos are first class and unlike a traditional publication they are not limited by size or the number they can include. I was able to enlarge the pictures up to 300% without loosing any clarity at all in them. Even if you are building other WNW kits then its worth considering this guide for the hints, tips and tutorials it contains. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  11. In the instructions for WNW's 1/32 Roland C.II, they show 2 "Optional Accessories", namely the FK Stab camera and the 25cm hand-held camera. The hand held camera is self explanatory, but the instructions do not show where the FK Stab camera was mounted, or if there are any mounting parts. Anybody have any answers to this problem? Larry
  12. In case one or two of you may be interested (anyone? ... anyone?), the Green Tails Albatros' have been available for pre-order on the WNW site for the last couple of days. Shipping date is July 24.

  15. Wingnut have just announced two new releases. The DFW C.V was arguably the single most important German aircraft of the First World War. The entire reason for military aviation at the time was to support the war on the ground and the most significant way to do this was through reconnaissance and artillery observation. A skilled artillery observer in a wireless equipped two-seater could kill more enemy with his index finger in a few minutes than the most skilled fighter pilots could in a lifetime and the DFW C.V was the most prevalent front line German two-seat aircraft of the war. 1/32 DFW C.V (Mid production) 32040 US$99.00 Mid production DFW C.V feature radiators mounted to each side of the fuselage. 320 high quality injection moulded plastic parts. 21 part highly detailed Benz Bz.IV engine. Sprue M is unique to this mid production model and features side radiator mounts, water pipes and cabane struts. Optional cockpit floors, fuselage bottoms, bomb rack, lMG 08 & LMG 08/15, cowlings, exhausts and propellers. Specific detail parts for DFW C.V manufactured by LVG, Aviatic and Deutsche Flugzeug-Werke. Optional diorama accessories, cameras and ladders. 12 photo-etched metal detail parts. 32 page fully illustrated instruction manual.

Sprue L features late production cabane struts, radiator and pipes. Optional internal bomb rack, lMG 08 & LMG 08/15 'Spandaus', winter cowlings, claw brake, exhausts and propellers. Specific detail parts for DFW C.V manufactured by LVG, Halberstadt, Aviatic and Deutsche Flugzeug-Werke. Optional diorama accessories, cameras and ladders. 12 photo-etched metal detail parts. 36 page fully illustrated instruction manual. 2 high quality Cartograf decal sheets with markings for 5 aircraft; DFW C.V 799/17, Albert Hahnel & Eugen Mann, FA 7, July 1917.

This model, 32802 1/32 Fokker E.III & DH.2 “The Duellists”, will not be re-released but 32048 Fokker E.III Late and 32028 AMC DH.2 are still available separately.
  16. Completed this just in time to hand it over to the Kingston Aviation Heritage Project last time at the West MIddlesex club. It is one of six Sopwith models we built for them to be used in their desire to keep the Kingston's heritage in the public limelight. After handing them over we were given an excellent presentation on the history of Sopwith which became Hawker and finally BAe and the aircraft they built in Kingston, Dunsfold and Langley. Although this was my first ever build of a biplane/triplane in this scale i enjoyed it for the most part and learnt a lot, which hopefully I'll be able to be put into good use in future projects.
