Everything is in to start the build.

Thanks to Dave Johnson at Wingnut Wings for the quick wing replacement and to Richard Andrews for the awesome Aviattic lozenge. I even picked up the new resin valves with lifters for the BMW engine from Nordland Models (thanks Denisa!!)

 

A little more research and I'll begin the build.

Hi everyone,

 

  I picked up the HGW detail set for the build.......

  And I think I'm going to try to push my abilities a little with this one. I've always wanted to do a "half and half" like this...............

 So I bought some extra wing sprues and I cut the top wing along the ribs to get the correct profile for each rib and numbered each rib ("T" for top)................

  I'll be making the ribs over the next few days.................

  If I can get the wings made to my satisfaction then I'll continue as planned but if not I will do a standard build. Hopefully all goes well.

Hi everyone,

 

There is still too much research and planning to do before the end of the GB to do a half and half version, so I will do a straight build and save the half and half for later this year once I have everything I need. I really don't want to do a rush job on it. Now the question is can I build a Wingnut Wings D.VII in just a little over 2 weeks. Challenge accepted.

 

Thanks,

Mark
