  7. Resin Continental 760x100 wheels and plywood decals Proper Plane Catalogue #’s wheels (RW-002), decals (PDW-1234) Price: $15.00USD per set Proper Plane is carving itself a very nice niche in the world of WW1 aviation modelling. We are used to seeing their superb hand-carved wooden, laminated propellers, such as reviewed HERE, but now they have turned their attention to the resin wheel replacements, possibilities of plywood decals. Continental 760x100 wheels This particular set is a direct replacement for kit wheels, and not just for WNW kits, as is obvious from the list of aircraft that this product is compatible with. As well as a rake of subjects that Wingnut Wings has chosen to release, there are obviously ones which they haven’t tackled, such as the Albatros D.III which is a Roden kit. Here is a list of compatible machines onto which this set will fit… The set itself comprises just two resin wheels in light grey resin, each on its own casting block and secured to it by means of a thin resin web which will be easy to remove and clean-up. The wheels are cast with the inward facing hub, meaning you will still need to use the kit’s outer hub plastic parts, and these of course can differ from aircraft to aircraft. The ridged tread on the outer wheel is clearly evident, and of course the ‘CONTINENTAL’name is present on the wheel, as well as the wheel’s size. This set is a perfect drop fit replacement for your standard styrene parts and minimal effort is required to press them into service. A lovely little addition to your next project! Plywood decals Our next new release from Proper Plane are a set of four different plywood decal sheets. These are presented in a very neat little cardboard wallet with the company logo emblazoned across the black material. Opening the little tab, we now have four different styles of plywood grain decal, each sheet being 105mm x 148mm, so not too large. The decals are designed by Dave Douglass, who has researched Albatros types and is au fait with exactly what the ply should look like. Each set contains 4 different grain types, typically seen on these machines, and they are also printed onto a clear base, meaning that you will need to add a suitable base colour to your model first, and any shading as you see fit. From this, you can make the ply look as pale or as rich as you deem fit for your model. Of course, you can also add a clear yellow/orange mix over the decals once applied, to add to their warmth. These decals are suitable for both 1:32 and 1:48 types. I don’t know if there is a plan to make a set suitable for 1:72. My sincere thanks to Proper Plane for the review samples seen here.

  10. Axial wooden propeller (for Mercedes 160hp) Proper Plane Catalogue # WP-001 Available from Proper Planefor $25.00 There are numerous things that can make the average modeller shy away from building a Great War aircraft. The first one that comes to mind is rigging. Another is simulating wood grain. Another, and one that has frustrated me in the past is making those plastic airscrews look like laminated timber. I eventually settled on a rather nice masking method that James Machin taught on the WNW Fans Facebook page. With some work, that creates a rather nice representation. Then there is the Laminated Propeller Mask from RB Productions. This is a little trickier, but when mastered, produces some very nice, organic effects. Ok, but these still only create a representation. So why not go the obvious route and actually use a wooden propeller? There are several companies on the market which make these, and they vary massively in price and cost. Some are very nice but expensive. Some are relatively poor, and still not cheap. Today, we introduce to you a company from the Ukraine, called Proper Plane, and an example of their own airscrew range. This is the text from the Proper Plane website, specifically for this Axial: Recommended for use on several German planes including WnW: • Halberstadt Cl.II (32049 D) • Albatros D.V/D.Va (32009 A B E / 32015 B E) • Fokker D.VII (32011 AB / 32027 E / 32030 BE / 32031 ACDE) • Junkers D.1 (32065 ABCD) • Pfalz D.XII (32019 C) • Pfalz D.IIIa (32006 • Roland C.II (32026 ABCDE / 32041 ABCD) and other with Mercedes 160/180/200 HP engine. Hand carved wooden propeller with resin boss. The propeller is made up of veneers of maple and pear and these are very delicate and look in scale. The balance is excellent as is the shape. The centre hub with eight bolts were modelled in 3D and cast specially for this propeller. The propeller diameter is 87 mm and matches the kit part from Wingnut Wings. It has a beautiful satin lacquer finish and is super smooth to the touch. This cute little package was sent to me for fitting to a Junkers D.1 for a future magazine project, but it also really deserves to be shown in a review article. The airscrew itself is packaged into a very robust, clear acrylic tube that can’t be buckled or squashed. A label at one end denotes the type of prop within. In my case, this is an Axial, designed for the 160hp Mercedes engine (although I don’t doubt it will be compatible with other permutations of Mercedes etc.). My sample is production number #97. Each end of the tube has a small, laser-engraved wooden cap, showing the Proper Plane logo, and these are fastened to the tube by means of a felt disc glued to the underside, providing a snug fit to the tube and preventing the product from slipping out, and also protecting the tips of the delicate wooden airscrew. Inside the tube, another foam disc is used as a separator, keeping the resin prop hubs from rattling around again damaging the fine tips of the airscrew. The airscrew itself is most certainly the best I have seen since we first started to see companies release these to the market. As per the real thing, this is produced from a number of laminates of alternating colours. In this case, there are EIGHT laminates involved in production, all with a suitably fine grain to them, and looking representative of the colours that we would expect. The overall finish is incredibly fine, with no grain being felt through the layers of varnish, and of course no pitting anywhere. The effect is glass-like. What really has to be mentioned are the incredibly fine edges and tips, again, smooth to the touch, and precise. In comparison with the kit plastic part, the shape looks perfect, and of course, a little more refined. For me, the colour of the airscrew is very, very nice, but you can of course shoot a little clear orange or yellow acrylic over this if you want a slightly warmer appearance. Note that the hub areas have a series of small, partially drilled indents around their circumference, allowing the modeller to properly align the resin hub bolt details, both front and back. Those front and rear hubs as mentioned, are cast in a light grey resin, and both onto a small casting block. You will undoubtedly need a very fine razor saw and come care in removing these from the block. Casting itself is very nice, with sharp details. Conclusion This is one of those simple upgrades that anyone can initiate, which will immediately enhance the appearance of your stick and string (and corrugated metal!) aircraft. It’s certainly an answer to the sometimes difficult to achieve woodgrain paint techniques, and for a product of this quality, the price is also very reasonable. Check out their website for more wooden airscrews for other WNW model kits. My sincere thanks to Proper Plane for the sample seen in this article.
