  1. 1:32 Fokker Dr. I/F.1 (Early and Late type) Meng (Ex-Wingnut Wings) Kit No. QS-02 Available from Ak-Interactive for €59,95. Well, there it is… the Meng Fokker Dr. I. The box has its fair size, well packed with plastic and in the side with some profiles and information. I confess that this review and this release is a bittersweet for me, as I have been a WnW Fan since day one… since April of 2010. Personaly, Wingnut Wings gave me a lot… new knowledge,
  2. Bristol F.2B “The Crocodile” By Jose Mª Martinez Fernández Publication: Wings & Rigging Price tag: 30€(plus shipping) When I was in the WnW meet and greet in Telford this year, I got this review samples directly from the hands of a very talent modeler and the author himself: my good friend Chema Martinez. This book was one of his goal and it gives the modeler the secrets behind the fabulous Bristol F.2B “The Crocodile”. So the only subject of the book is a step-by-step of it. The book is in A4 size, with soft cover and satin finish pa

  4. Building the Wingnut Wings HALBERSTADT CL.II By Ray Rimmel WWI Modelling Special n.º 9 Available at http://www.windsockdatafilespecials.co.uk/ Now we are reviewing the latest issue of the series The "Building the Wingnut Wings"" series by Ray Rimell, owner of Windsock.

  5. 1:32 Hannover Cl.II ‘Early’ Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32079 Available from Wingnut Wings for $129.00, plus postage. The Hannover Cl.II was a two-man escort fighter, built by Hannoversche Waggonfabrik, and entering service in 1917. The Cl.II was a fast and lightweight aircraft which was more than capable of matching the manoeuvrability of some RFC fighters, given the right combat conditions. The machine itself had a lightweight construction, skinned by a very thin layer of plywood veneer, typically less than 2mm thick. The 'L' in 'Cl' stands for leicht, or 'light', in di
  6. I've been home for a couple weeks now after my triple bypass surgery. Last week I made it back to the bench but I've been finding it a bit of a struggle to stay focused. Part of that is I'm easily tired which is not what I expected. Everyone says it's normal after major surgery but I've no reference so it's kind of new to me. Which is a good thing I guess. Anyways I started working on a resin Zero kit I have. I thought it wouldn't be too bad. The parts count was low and it seemed simple enough. I ran afoul of trying to do the chipping needed for the finish and having to use wire to peg th
  7. 1:32 Gotha UWD Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32053 Available from Wingnut Wings for $199.00 plus shipping In 1914 the German VPK (Verkehrstechnische Prüfungs Kommission) dictated that three types of tactical role aircraft were to be developed, each in their own class and with their own specifications. Type 1: A two seater, 130hp, for longer flights, carrying a small bomb payload or photographic equipment. Type 2: A light, very maneouverable two seater for short flights. A plane that can take off quick and is armed with self defence weapons. Type 3: The heavy bo
  8. 1:32 Gotha G.1 Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32045 Available from Wingnut Wings for $199.00 plus shipping The Gotha G.I was a heavy bomber used by the Luftstreitkräfte (Imperial German Air Service) during World War I. In mid-1914, Oskar Ursinus, the founder and editor of the German flying magazine Flugsport, began designing a large twin-engine seaplane of unconventional configuration. While most biplane designs have the fuselage attached to the lower wing, Ursinus had a snub-nosed fuselage attached to the upper wing, and twin engine nacelles mounted on the lower one.

  10. Building the Wingnut Wings Dolphin & PFALZ D.IIIa By Ray Rimell The "Building the Wingnut Wings" series is already a mark and a most to all WnW models. There were several titles already and all of them were and are a reference in the way you can build a WnW like a master modeler.

  11. 1:32 ‘The Duellists’ – Halberstadt Cl.II & RE.8 “Harry Tate” Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32804 Available from Wingnut Wings for $229USD, plus postage The Halberstadt Cl.II was a highly successful lightweight German two-seat escort fighter and ground attack aircraft that entered service in July 1917. It was initially tasked with escorting traditional two-seat C type reconnaissance and artillery spotting aircraft up until March 1918 when they transitioned to infantry support. The RE.8 was designed as a two-seat reconnaissance aircraft and entered service with the RFC in
  12. 1:32 Halberstadt Cl.II (Early) Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32049 Available from Wingnut Wings for $129USD plus postage The Halberstadt Cl.II was a highly successful escort fighter and infantry support aircraft that entered German service from late July 1917. It was very well regarded for its good visibility, climb rate, manoeuvrability, stability and ease of internal communication afforded by the close nature of the pilot and gunner. Early production aircraft had the main gun mounted to the left of the engine while late production aircraft had it mounted to the rig

  16. 1/32 Junkers D.1 Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32065 Available from Wingnut Wings for $79.00 plus shipping The Junkers D.I (factory designation J 9) was a monoplane fighter aircraft produced in Germany late in World War I, significant for becoming the first all-metal fighter to enter service. The prototype, a private venture by Junkers designated the J 7, first flew on 17 September 1917, going through nearly a half-dozen detail changes in its design during its tests. When it was demonstrated to the Idflieg early the following year it proved impressive enough to resul

  19. 1/32 Albatros D.V/D.Va ‘Jasta 5’ Green Tail Trilogy Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32701 Available from BlackMike Models for £175.95 History The Albatros D.V was a fighter aircraft used by the Luftstreitkräfte (Imperial German Air Service) during World War I. The D.V was the final development of the Albatros D.I family, and the last Albatros fighter to see operational service. In April 1917, Albatros received an order from the Idflieg (Inspektion der Fliegertruppen) for an improved version of the D.III. The resulting D.V prototype flew later that month. The D.V closel
  20. 1/32 Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32073 Available from Wingnut Wings for $79 plus shipping The Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin was a British fighter aircraft manufactured by the Sopwith Aviation Company. It was used by the Royal Flying Corps and its successor, the Royal Air Force, during the First World War. In early 1917, the Sopwith chief engineer, Herbert Smith, began designing a new fighter (internal Sopwith designation 5F.1) powered by the geared200hp Hispano-Suiza 8B. The resulting Dolphin was a two-bay, single-seat biplane, with the upper wings attach
  21. 1/32 Jeannin Stahltaube (1914) Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32058 Available from Wingnut Wings for $119 + shipping The Taube. Now there’s a story, indeed. I think it would be fair to say that most people with a reasonable knowledge of WW1 aviation would immediately think ‘Etrich’ when the word Taube (Dove) was mentioned. That is of course entirely fair, and I fall squarely into that category too, but behind the beautiful and graceful lines of the Taube comes a story of one man’s lack of foresight when it came to his aircraft design that was based on the publication of German pap
  22. 1:32 Sopwith F.1 Camel “USAS” Wingnut Wings Kit No. 32072 Available from Wingnut Wings for $79. Introduction Today we look at our fifth Sopwith Camel, being the USAS engine version. Like all our reviews, I will try to convince YOU that this is the version you want or at least one of the Camel version that you also need if not all. But, to keep in mind all other camel versions, take a look at our other reviews too: F.1 Camel ‘BR.1’ F1 Camel ‘Clerget’ 2F.1 ‘Ship’s Camel’ F1 C
  23. 1:32 Sopwith F.1 Camel “Le Rhône” Wingnut Wings Kit No. 32071 Available from Wingnut Wings for $79,- Introduction Today we look at our fourth Sopwith Camel, being the Le Rhône engine version. Now you may think: big deal. It’s the Camel sprues with a Le Rhône engine thrown in for variation. Yes and no. But in order to really assess this is to take a look at our other reviews too: F.1 Camel ‘BR.1’ F1 Camel ‘Clerget’ 2F.1 ‘Ship’s Camel’ Stay tuned for the USAS Camel review on LSM soon. As
  24. 1/32 Fokker D.VII “Early” Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32067 Available from Wingnut Wings for $99 plus shipping The Fokker D.VII was a German World War I fighter aircraft designed by Reinhold Platz of the Fokker-Flugzeugwerke. Germany produced around 3,300 D.VII aircraft in the second half of 1918. In service with the Luftstreitkräfte, the D.VII quickly proved itself to be a formidable aircraft. The Armistice ending the war specifically required Germany to surrender all D.VIIs to the Allies. Surviving aircraft saw continued widespread service with many ot
  25. 1:32 Sopwith 2F.1 “Ship’s Camel” Wingnut Wings Kit No. 32076 Available from Wingnut Wings for $79,- Introduction ‘Wingnut Wings will never do a Camel’. A bold statement that was often heard amongst WW1 aviation enthusiast modellers… Reason being that Wingnut Wings plotted their own course and the Camel had been done before by the likes of Hobbycraft and Academy. Italeri very recently even did a re-pop of the rather mediocre Academy kit. Why no other brand (Roden for instance) ever tackeled the Camel before I really don’t know and is
