    My next project.  It's way too long since I built anything Tamiya, so here goes.
     

     
    Most of the after market I will be using on this.
     

     
    The Master gun barrels are actually left overs from the Spitfire XVI I built for the Colour My World Blue group build.  I bought two of these and used the cannon stubs from both kits for that model, and I'll be using the main cannon barrels from one in this build and the other will be used in the Spitfire IX when I eventually build that.
     
    I've spent a little time today drilling out the lightening holes in some of the parts, but still have a ways to go with that having otherwise had a fairly busy day.  I hope to get to some gluing and painting in the next couple of days.
     
     
    Cheers,
    Michael

    The cowl is an Erla-type - which in itself says nothing, as these were also sold to other manufacturers by Erla, and hence found their way onto aircraft produced by other plants (all G-8 airframes were produced by WNF). The G-6/U3 had exactly the same camera equipment and set-up as the G-8, so it would be quite difficult to tell the two apart; in essence, the G-8 was a newly-built G-6/U3, rather than a conversion. All G-8 aircraft were equipped with an Erla Haube; judging from the photgraph, this aircraft likely had the old 3-piece canopy, which would make it a G-6. Hope this helps.

    Some serious progress today with first up getting the fuselage extension glued in place after some careful sanding and trimming
     

     

     
    Than the massive sail of the vertical stabiliser was fitted followed by the equally massive horizontal stabilisers
     

     

     
    Also couldnt resist a quick test fit of the main sub assembies
     

     

     
    Absolutely massive with the fuel tank extension fitted, lots of filling, sanding and scribing coming up!

    And here are some mid-distance and close up shots.
     

    Too much light in this shot, which is too bad as it washes out a lot of the face's detail and shadows.
     

    I might replace the prop with a wooden one.
     

     

    You can see some castor oil staining near the wing root.
     

    Another view of the castor oil staining.
     

     

    I painted the prop with a base coat of acrylic color and then wiped a fairly thick (for me) coat of oil paint on it to simulate fine wood grain and to add a bit of warmth and depth.  Unfortunately I was too light with the effect so you can really only see it in macro shots like this.
     

    I decent macro showing both the prop boss area and the engine.
     

    Some of the bracing wire eye bolt joins.

    I finished work on the very nice WNW Sopwith Triplane that represents one of the Triplanes flown by Canadian ace Raymond Collishaw.  Collishaw was credited with 60 aerial victories, 33 while flying with Number 10 Naval Squadron and two of those victories were achieved while flying aircraft 533; a twin machinegun variant.  I built the kit mostly oob, adding only an HGW seatbelt and spark plug wires for the engine.  This is the third WNW aircraft I have built and it went together as nicely as the first two.  I only weathered the aircraft lightly, with the exception of underneath where I did add some heavy castor oil staining.  Unfortunately I did not feel brave enough to handle the plane by turning it over to take some photos, it is a bit fragile and I did not want to wreck my work right after completion.  Maybe later.  I faded the upper horizontal surfaces slightly and did add a bit of dirt to the lower rear of the plane.
     
    In closing I want to thank LSP K2 for very generously selling me the kit a few months ago after I lamented that I probably would never have a chance to build it with WNW closing down.  Thank you Kevin!!!  I hope I did the kit justice.
     
    First up will be some overall shots of the build.
