Seems like as good a time as ever to jump into my second Wingnut Wings Gotha G.IV kit. The first one from 2 years ago met an untimely gravity-related death when it was about 90% finished.
So here we go: WNW Gotha, unstarted. Pheon decals for the awesome herringbone scheme. The one (poor quality phto) of this plane leads me to believe the blue/mauve scheme is probably correct, but I'm going to do the blue fuselage / light blue wings scheme as I've not seen one built in those colors before.
Aftermarket to be used:
REXX hollow metal exhausts - REXX ehausts are gorgeous, and the Gotha ones are my favorite of all their products to date
Aviattic weighted wheels - packaging calls them Gotha wheels but really they're appropriate for all G-type and many / all C-type German aircraft.
Aviattic resin prop hubs
Taurus valves / lifters / timing gear for the Mercedes D.IV engines - I'll use these if I decide to do open cowls, as these details will be lost on closed cowls
If I can get Proper Plane to make me a set of wooden propellers for this bird, you can bet I'll be using these also.
