    OldTroll got a reaction from Pup7309 in Late 2019 WNW updates: Lancs, HP 0/1/400s, Dr1s, H-B D1, Aces, and 32075 Sopwith...?   
    "... Yes it’s quite unique - kind of chunky looking bird. "
     
    Even chunkier with the so-called "baby coffin" enclosed MG mount on the upper wing.  There are a raft of schemes for the D.I, most of which have unpainted plywood fuselages with large geometric shapes or letters and CDL wings.  Linke-Crawford (27 victories) was a well-known user of this aircraft as well as the Phonix D.I and Aviatik(Berg) D.I (WNW please add these to future releases.)

    Hoping to put this sub-thread to rest, MVR flew at least seven F.I/Dr.I:
     
    F.I 102/17 September 1917 - Factory finish of Olive streaks over all upper sufaces and fuselage sides; "Fokker blue" base coat.
    Dr.I 127/17 Mid-March 1918 - Red cowling, struts and wheel disks.  Olive streaked upper surfaces and fuselage sides over clear-doped linen (CDL.)  Light blue undersurfaces.
    Dr.I 152/17 March 1918 - Red cowling, struts, rear fuselage and tailplane, top of upper wing and wheel disks.  Otherwise as 127/17.
    Dr.I 161/17 March 1918 - Red cowling, struts, tailplane, top of upper wing and wheel disks.  Otherwise as 127/17.
    Dr.I 405/17 January 1918 - Red wheel disks.  Otherwise as 127/17.
    Dr.I 425/17 March/April 1918 - Red overall.
    The above all had the earlier curved arm cross (Cross Pattee.)  425/17 was updated with the straight arm cross (Balkenkreuz) in late March/early April shortly before Richtofen's death.
    Dr.I 477/17 Early April 1918 - same scheme as 161/17 with Balkenkreuz as 425/17.

    I encountered this  a couple months ago and was told by WNW that you can pay with your PayPal balance but not with a bank transfer.  In other words, move money to your PayPal account before ordering, then do the ordering process.  It worked fine for me.

    Based on the WNW Photos thread the HP O/400 (kit 32039) will be joined by its predecessor, the HP O/100 (kit 32051.)  Different engines and some internal differences.

    OldTroll got a reaction from LSP_Kevin in Wingnut Wings 32065: Junkers D.1   
    I assembled mine yesterday and last night.  The review has it spot on with a personal observation that the level of detail and delicateness of many of the cockpit parts is superb.  A few injection nubs to clean up (none are visible after assembly) and care in removing some smaller parts from the sprues is a must.  The wing and fuselage joins are virtually invisible.  The ailerons and elevator are essentially "press fit" with the tips of the horizontal stabilizer needing a couple passes with a sanding stick to relieve the tightness of the fit.  The ailerons and elevator join the fixed assemblies with a number of rods that fit into corresponding holes in the trailing edge of the fixed assembly.  I found it prudent to slightly relieve the appropriate holes with a twist drill to avoid snapping off the delicate rods on the control surface parts.  The nose assembly will benefit from extra study and trial fitting before committing to adhesive.  Make sure the radiator is plumb vertical and properly interfaces with the engine fitting at the top.
     
    This build will not be painted but was just for my enjoyment of assembly while my eyes and hands still work well enough get the pieces more or less where they belong.  All in all a very enjoyable experience and another feather in WNW's cap.
