Sadly, I've had to take the recent Wingnut news into account...sales of my tailored lozenge decals for them have all but dried up. 

One wrong move at this stage of the company's development could spell disaster.

 

I may offer the parts as they are (Chema certainly managed to get the best from the 3D printed parts!) on the Shapeways site through an Aviattic "shop"...but I don't think I can promise the multi - media extravaganza I was hoping for...

 

watch this space!

 

And a Happy 2016 to all! Keep supporting small model companies!

 

Regards, Richard

Shame to hear but the shapeways approach could also be an intetesting one! I have a few pieces and figures from various designers on there and they're generally superb

I have to be the only WW1 guy out there who isn't completely turned on by the D.Vll. It's nice, a legendary aircraft, and I have several kits, but I much prefer the Pflaz D.Xll for a different model.

This set looked real promising though. Pity.

It's a real surprise WnW didn't order more D.Vlls. They had to have known it would set sales records, not just with people like us, but also with folks who otherwise would never have considered a WW1 model.

As promised, the set of parts is now available directly from Aviattic shop at Shapeways..

Master modeller and friend, Chema Martinez won Gold at 2016 IPMS Scalemodelworld with his combination of Aviattic parts and WNW Fokker DVII they were intended for and show just what can be done with some patience and ingenuity. Choose from individual parts to depict battle damaged or salvaged aircraft - or go the whole hog for a stripped and captured museum example. Aviattic "Lozenge" decals applied to thin foil can half cover the airframe....the possibilities are endless.

Aviattic already sells a Fokker seat and cushion, the first ever accurately modelled version and instrument sets will soon be available!

My thanks to Beto Derrumbe who put a lot of time, love and dedication into the design of these parts. 
CAD drawn from combinations of the best researched drawings we could find they are 3D printed in the finest resolution material Shapeways currently use. 

I hope to revisit this project in the future. There is much that could be done to further explore the idea. 

Not available at the Aviattic website - please follow this link and they will delivered straight to your door!

Fascinating.

 

And enormously expensive, which is the nature of 3D printing at the moment.

 

Good luck!

looks terrific, but at £235.43 for all the parts for a complete aircraft, just a little too much out of my price range,

but I suppose if your doing a lot of kits with the exposure work done to them, your spread the parts and the cost......

 

Really like the look of it, but just too much for me....

Building: Zoukei Mura 1/32 Raiden, Tamiya 1/32 P51 Mustang, WNW 1/32 LVG, WNW 1/32 Fokker Eindecker E111

Waiting in the Wings: Tamiya 1/32 Corsair Birdcage, Trumpeter 1/32 P47 Razorback, WNW 1/32 Fokker Eindecker E11/E111, WNW D.V.a

Want: too much to list.......

Yes - 3D printing is expensive. We developed this idea over two years ago with the intention to turn it into a cast resin kit but development was too involved and costly for further consideration.

 

No need to buy the whole set - its designed to be bought in parts...just a battle damaged rudder would give the opportunity to have some fun with torn covering exposing the frame. An aileron damaged, a top wing or the whole fuselage partly stripped by souvenir hunters...the whole fuselage part is £26.60...

 

best wishes, Richard

I got my "strip-down" fuselage in the mail, and it looks great. I'll budget for the rest of the bits over time, but I see a lot of building in there.

I took advantage of the sale pricing at Christmas to order another fuselage, tailplane, and the upperwing. I plan on doing a "few' DVIIs in various stages of stripdown.

 I'd LOVE to see this done for the Dr.I .....

It's definitely a bummer that my all-time favorite WW1 a/c, the DVII, has to be one of the most expensive WNW kits out there, and that even this wonderful 3D printed option is way more than I am willing to pay. 


In progress: 1/32 Trumpy P-38L (very slowly)

On deck: Not certain.

Completed in 2015: Hasegawa F6F-3 Hellcat, Hase Me-163 Jagerfaust , 1/16 Fokker DVII Scratchbuilt Wooden Skeleton
