  1. Moin Moin, Fellow Modelistas, after some excursions into 1/48 scale, I will start a 'grown up' build right now. Since some years, I have the W.12 in stash and was more than once tempted to start the build, but actually we had a bad start the Kamel and me. Having bought the W.12, it was always a cheap substitute for not getting the single wing W.29, but now with the years, I accepted my fate, made my peace and after seeing some great build logs, I'm looing forward to the build, anticipating a lot to learn and have loads of fun. I have a soft spot for seaplanes and the sea itself, so i
  2. Hello all, I completed the Tripe towards the back-end of last year for a memorial group build. I'm very pleased with how she turned out. Hope you like her. Cheers Bob Von B
  3. Hola Senhores, Some years ago, while I was still living in Berlin, I started this kit and left it partly build in the box until recently, where I felt the urge to build something from that period and wanted to finish some of the started kits. The big time lag is the main reason, why I didn't wrote a WIP, the other is, it is my first WNW kit, first rigging experience and first kit of it's time with all these different materials to reproduce, like metal, wood, cloth... The kit itself is a gem, fit is almost perfect, details are sharp and the fragile bird is somewhat sturdy in the end.
  4. Hi Gang, I'd like to buy or trade for a set of decal suitable for MvR's Fokker Dr1 in 1/32nd. Ideally I'd like the bonus markings from WNW 32601#601 Fokker Dr.1 for Roden's model. Failing that any, Pheon decals that might suit. I'm in Australia. Thanks.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Hi guys, I would like to share with you pictures of WNW models I built. Many of you probably saw my builds on the Facebook "WingNut Wings Fans" group, but for those who don't I hope you will like pics. I will start with my first WNW kit - Fokker D.VII (Alb). In this build I used EZ line for rigging, Gaspatch turnbuckles, aftermarket wooden propeller from Micro Group. Everything is hand-painted by brush with acrylic paint.
  8. Hello Gent's So I'm continuing the S.E.5a build here, were it belongs. Today I managed to get a little work done on the wolseley cowling/nose parts. Trying to get the details right... The parts for the Wolseley nose... A new engine cover made from aluminium... The S.E.5a rebuild in New Zealand by 'The Vintage Aviator'
  9. 1:32 Russischer Pilot (with leather jacket - in lederjacke) Kaiserlich russische Fliegertruppe Kellerkind Miniaturen (from Martin Hille) Catalogue n.º 060 Price tag: € 15,95 WnW really did a revolution concerning WWI modelling around the all world and brought the very best to WWI. Kellerkind Miniaturen is in fact one of those cases, giving WWI modellers very nice products and variety. Behind Kellerking is Martin Hille, a sculptor with great qualities and whom work I have been following in WnW fans facebook page and in Kellerkind facebook page for quite some w
  10. 1:32 Fokker Eindecker wing conversion set For Wingnut Wings E.II/E.III/E.IV kits RB Productions Catalogue # RB-P32032 Available from RB Productions for €55,01 World War 1 modellers spend so much time creating painting and finishing effects that make their plastic creations look like fabric covered, timber airframes. But, what if you actually wanted to show those interior structures for real? What if you wanted to build a skeletal or semi-skeletal version of your subject? What if you wanted to create a diorama of a crashed or damaged aircraft? I’m sure we’ve all thought of the possi
  11. Well ADHD got me again, so sue me, this makes kit # 29 in progress. Have started building Wingnut's Fok. D.VII (OAW) with the goal of having it done no later than April 25th. The large local contest on the 26th has the WWI theme and I plan to take all of my completed wingnuts kits to display. This one will be the Sieben Schwabben (7 Swabians), available on this wingnuts decal sheet. Lozenge decals will be Aviattic and I can tell you, boy do they look beautiful on the paper. Progress so far: lots of thin strips of masking tape and preshading of some fuselage parts. Wings are painted no
  12. WOW. The box is huge, and its packed full of plastic. I know some have issues with the fact its expensive and only one decal choice but its the one I'd have chosen anyway and the whole thing is less than the W.29 goes for on its own on Flea Bay I'd say its well worth it and even with £46.22 to Parcel Farce for Import Duty its still almost £80.00 cheaper than Hannants if you order it personally. Well recommended, cant wait to build it and almost tempted to drop everything, it'll be epic and a long build process. Just reading the instructions now. Rigging scares the crap out of me though
  13. 1:32 decal sets for WNW 2A2 Salmson kits Pheon Decals Catalogue # see article for code and price Available from Pheon Decals Has there ever been any specific Wingnut Wings kit more underrepresented in the online modelling community, than the excellent 2A2 Salmson? I must admit that whilst I don't regularly visit the various modelling shows around the country, I am told that you really don't see any of these models made up anywhere. I, for one, think that's a crying shame as it really is, for me, one of the real highlights in the WNW catalogue. Having said that, Pheon decals have co
  14. Hi all, One or two builds ago James Hatch and myself decided to do a duo build of the Rumpler. You don't see these getting build too often, so we're setting the score straight in one go! I'll be using the full HGW upgrade for the interior, exterior and seat belts. James will rough it and do without! James will (might) be doing the Late version in colorful livery: And I will do an early one in this flashy scheme: Stay tuned! This is going to be fun!!
  15. I'm presently building a WNW Roland DVIa. This is my third WNW build (the others being a SE5a and an early Snipe), however this is the one I'm most proud of. I'd love to get constructive opinions from you lot out there...
  16. Hi Guys, Here's my latest Wingnutter. Took me some time, mainly caused by stupid mistakes I made during construction. I added: • HGW full detail set • Bob's Buckles • Gaspatch turnbuckles • Old Propellor Lozenge • Doug Craner Wooden prop • One Steven Robson spoked wheel • EZ line • Radio Radiotor Mesh • Gaspatch Anemometer Construction can be found here: http://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/1225-wnw-fokker-dvii-fok/ Special thanks to James for kicking my ass into gear every single day Together with a piece of fabric fr

  18. Hi there, Here's my Junkers J.1. A great kit to start ww1 subjects with. A few tricky parts, but overall a pleasant build. I only added Master barrels and HGW seat belts. I also used lead foil to enhance the ridge that cover the ailerons. These were quite distorted in real life. Also fixed the issue with the gap between the aileron and wing. Cheers, Jeroen
  19. Hi Everybody. This is the build review of the Wingnutwings Fokker D.VII F. As this is my first WW I and WNW kit, and as I'm not really into this kind of planes, I have to apologize to this kind of job for the specialists. I will build it Out Of The Box, just made the rigging as it's put in the instructions. I want to made this build review as I would like to see all, with "how too" and "how I do this". So, enough Blabla.... Page four of the instruction start with the cockpit: Here are the parts used in the first row: Start with the floor.I painted a base coat of Tamiya XF-59, thro

  21. Hi guys, Looking at Wingnutwing's instructions for their E.III I get a bit confused. Are the cables to warp the wing only attached to the control stick at the underside by the moving bracket on the U/C framing? Or also from the upper side at the pulley? See the front/rear schematic to see what I mean; in this case if warping is only induced at the bottom side of the wing and the opposing wingtip is pulled up because the top wires slip over the pulley by the tug of the downward warping wing:
