1:32 scale - Hansa-Brandenburg W.29

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
I thought you might like to see my 15th 1:32 scale build - The German ‘Hansa-Brandenburg W.29’, a twin float, two seat naval patrol aircraft. This model represents the Hansa-Bradenburg W.29 (CM3G version), No.2512 as flown by Oberleutnant Friedrich Christian Christiansen of ’Seeflugstation 1’, Zeebrugge, Belgium during July 1918.

The basic list of changes/additions to the model are:

Engine:
Exhaust pipes.
Spark plugs.
Cylinder fuel primers.
Push rods.
Valve springs.
Rocker arms.
Ignition lead support tubes.
Ignition leads.
Rear coolant pipe.
Crankcase vents.
Speed control gear.
Fuel filter pipes.

Modified or corrected:
‘GasPatch’ Spandau and Parabellum machine guns.
Gun installations.
Cockpit control cable pulleys.
Cockpit control line routing.
Cockpit flying control lines.
Pilot’s control wheel.
Throttle quadrant.
Rigging points.
Radiator top pipe.
Tachometer drive cable.
Animation of control surfaces

Aftermarket additions:
‘Gaspatch’ 1:32 scale Parabellum 14/17 machine gun (15-32069).
‘Gaspatch’ 1:32 scale ‘Spandau’ 08/15 machine guns (15-320619).
‘Aviattic’ Bleached Clear Doped Linen (ATT32044).
‘Aviattic’ German Naval Hex (faded) (ATT32113).
‘HGW Models’ fabric seat belts (132562).
‘GasPatch’ Elite Accessories Turnbuckles.
‘Copper State Models’ 1:32 scale German Naval Crew (F32-034).
‘Copper State Models’ 1:32 scale German Naval Ground Crew (F32-037).
‘Coastal Kits’ 1:32 scale Abandoned Airfield Display Base (modified for 3D effect).

As usual I've created a downloadable build log in Adobe PDF format, for those who might want to refer to it for reference or build details. It contains full step by step descriptions of the model build, its modifications/changes and is also supported with illustrations and photographs. If viewed in Adobe Reader, each build log has book marked chapters/headings for easier navigation through the log.
My model website has the gallery page, so to view any model, go to the gallery and select it.  If it has a PDF build log, it will be available to download using the 'PDF' icon on that models photo's page. For any photograph, just click the photo to enlarge or reduce the viewing size.

My next model will be the ‘Wingnut Wings’ Sopwith F1 Camel (modified version) of the Canadian ace William Barker.

Quite simply that is the best piece of aircraft modelling I've seen for while now.

 

Well done

Absolutely stunning!  There simply aren't enough superlatives for this.

 

And thanks so much for the link to your site and the PDF build guides.  I've shamelessly availed myself of your kindness in providing the guides since I have a few of these same kits in my stash.  :thumbsup:

a good illustration that real model making will be WW I. If only there was time and energy. And look at the figures, the faces. Very well done, everything.
