Wingnut wings Hansa Brandenburg w.12 1/32


Recommended Posts

Hello all!

Few months ago i finally managed to get w.12!

I don't have too much of wnw kits, and when i saw oportunity to buy w.12, it was a must for me :)

Starting with cockpit! Wood grain was done with acrilyc pencils + coat of clear orange

Waiting for HGW seatbelts, GasPatch turnbuckles and Wotan prop from Proper Plane! 

Huge thanks to Carl Weaver, Karol Konwerski and Kamil Trembacz for help and input!! :)

That wood interior looks great, and the detail on the IP is exceptional. Will you add levers to the switches on the left side? I used some lead wire on my build, which I flattened with pliers. It's a great kit and I'm sure you will the build.

Cheers Rob

Thanks Harv and Rob!

I will Rob! I spent half day on instrument panel..i think i've cleaned it 3-4 times, as i didn't like how wood grain turned out lol now happy with result! 

Here is photo of engine bay, before washes :)

Your Hansa Brandenburg will look awesome. I went the same way, using the Aviattic Lozenge for mine and they were a joy to work with. It's a great kit, where you can concentrate completely on painting and weathering. I'm eagerly looking forward for your progress.

Cheers Rob

Had to do some operations lol

I wanted to wrap thread around wheel but it ended way to much messy..couldn't remove it so i made brass ring, and used copper wire to wrap it around and glue middle section back in!IMG_20210605_113044-01.thumb.jpeg.a46af521992f80f1da4f99a7246dcd47.jpeg

Cockpit almost finished!

Decided not to get HGW seatbelts, as they didn't shipped them after 7days after order. I'm a bit impatient hahah so waiting for another 2-3 weeks just for seatbelts was a no no for me :D

Thanks guys! 

I must say that i started with modeling last year, and although i have started like all my 5-6 wnw kits that i managed to buy from last year to present hahahah i haven't finished any! At some point i just stopped working as i thought something is missing and i'm not able to give them 100%

On this build, it will be finished, and as my second model ever!
