I've just finished building mine. I finished it as a white day bomber with the red fuselage bands and black swas stickers ,was an absolute pleasure to build and rig. Don't let all the bits scare you it's not that bad and the rigging is really quite straight forward.
Glad to hear it...then again, after the FE-2 just about any rigging will seem easier by comparison!

Youv'e a good start Tim. I'm sure you're seeing LOTS of detail painting ahead! I assume you are test fitting as you paint to check fit?
Indeed--even having the paint on too thick can affect how WNW kits go together, so I've done my share of paint removal/sandpapering with this build. So far, everything is fitting together quite well--the key has been not to get in a rush (something I had to learn to overcome in my youth).

There are some other figures "in the works," so it'll be easy to mix-n-match and pick up one more crewman to round out the team.

Tim, Great work on the wood grain effect. Will be watching your build since I have a couple WWI planes to build. Tim can you tell me what oil paint colors you used? Dan
Yes--I just grabbed a tube of dark brown oil paint (Windsor Newton?) from the Michaels art supply store. There's a "how to" on the WNW website:
It's down at the bottom left of the page. Basically, you paint the lighter wood grain first. I use Model Master enamel's "Wood" color. Once thorougly dry, you use a bit of sponge to apply the oil paint to get the wood grain effect--you can darken or lighten as needed. Then let it dry for a good 24-48 hours, depending on how big a surface you are messing with. And voila!
Hope this helps,

The fuselage is now together. Updated pix will follow shortly. As usual, if you take your time and follow the instructions, these things go together with a minimum of cursing and sanding!

Fantastic start on the Gotha interior, as the wood grain effect is spot on.
