Dh 9a

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

Well, Roden is not so bad.

Sugest you, use the WNW instructions to get more information.

I also have Albatros I, III and Se.5 to build from Roden.

It is a nice challange too.

Happy modelling

At this stage I think I have everything that flew  from 1914 through to 1918 in 1/48 in the stash  :) let’s see a DH2, 4 and 9, Fokker EIII, DVII and DVIII, Neiuport 17 x 2, a SPAD XII, Sopwith Camel x 2, Snipe and Dolphin, Se5a, Roland CII and DIV, Junkers DI, Bristol Fighter, Pfalz DIII and DXII and more Albatri than you can shake a stick at (at least 5) to name but a few :)

Hallo

The WW1 a/c I built some in 1/48, one in 1/72. The development was driven by the ability for rigging.

After the accurate rigging technique was established, I shifted to 1/32 from WNW and Roden.

I learned to understand the actual rigging on an airplane and to modify it. This is the backbone.

I do my eyelets with 0,13 thin copper wire, the rigging wire is a 0,13mm monofilament for fishing and the tubes from Albin-Aloys.

This is the most expensive item. The author of WW1aircraftmodelling showed me this via web. The handling technique I had to learn.

My favorite a/c are Dh.2 and FE.2b. As you can see on the forum.

My WW1 stash is not so numerous as yours, since I built so much. Still ahead are:

 

Albatros B.II Early version Wingnut 32046

Albatros D.I Roden 614

Albatros D.III Roden 606

Bristol Fighter Wingnut

DH 2 Wingnut

Gotha G.I Wingnut

Halberstadt Wingnut

Hansa-Brandenburg W.12 Wingnut 32036

S.E.5a 'Hisso' Wingnut

RAF S.E.5a w /Hispano Suiza Roden

RE.8 Wingnut

Rumpler C.IV late version Wingnut

 

The Friedrichshafen 33 from Luckgraph will come soon too.

 

Happy modelling

That’s an impressive stash. Looking forward to seeing more of it get built.

Hallo

Here now I may confront you with nonsense and you may call it something else. A typical favor of WNW. For proper rigging they made usually 50% solutions. Not nil nor 100%. Therefore, you may look at the wonderful aileron actuator. The real thing I found in our forum. WNW omits such vital information. The pulleys for the elevator are also such plastic pigs. Some years ago, I discussed this matter with WNW, in vein.

Well, so I try to make a model from such nonsense. The error in the instruction because of the engine, I had to correct with my knife anyway.

So far, plastic work is done.

The pulleys I may replace, I am not sure about. The actuator I will fix. Just the horizontal hole I can not change. Vertically the material is too thin!

Well, we will see…

Happy modelling

So far.

Sprayed nearly alll parts. Beside weapons and wheels.

Lots to paint, and to work with oil after weekend.

As I mentioned prior, the roundels are sprayed.

Happy modelling
