  1. Hello everybody , after around two months of fun and little pain I have yesterday finished my next Wingnut Wings model , the Salmson 2 in USAF markings. It was one of the most challenging kits from WnW until now , and the hardest task was the rigging , that gave me more problems then usual du to the complexity of the amount of double flying wires. As usual I used not much aftermarket stuff in the build , the only things are HGW belts and the very good Bob's Buckles eyelets. Without too much words , here comes the pictures , hope you like them. Firs
  2. Hi Jeff , the spoke wheels are made from PE-parts included in the kit in combination with plastik parts. They are not easy to make but the result is worth the time spent on it. Following a comparison betwenn the spoke wheels made with PE-parts and the plastik "alternative" , just made with two plastik parts. And completed : Peter
  3. Hi Jeff , That's really good work , like it very much. The kit is great , I have build it some years ago and it was a lot of fun to do. You have found the right balance in weathering it not too much , this looks very realistic to me. Peter
  4. Hello , It's a longer time now since I have postet my last build here. But finally I have made some pictures of my latest Wingnut build and would like to share it with you for discussion. Maybe it is not one of my best ones but it was a lot of fun to build. It was the first time for me to work with "wood decails" and I must say the quality of those included in the kit was really great. Hope you like the result , if not please let me know your recommendation for making it better next time :). Peter
  5. Hi Mark , The cowling metal effect is painted. First airbrushed with Tamiya X-11 Chrome silver than brush painted with Gunze Mr.Metal Color H211 Chrome silver. Peter
  6. Hello , after more or less one and a half months fun I can now show you the pictures of my next finished Wingnut model. The Jeannin Stahltaube ( steel dove ) was one of the first double seater reconnaissance planes that were used on German side. It was an unarmed plane and the only weapon on board was an automatic Luger pistol carried by the observer. The kit is relatively simple to build , the rigging looks complicated but it is not a big thing to do. I would definitely recommend it also to the WW1 model beginner. Following the picture , I hope you like them.
  7. Hello , This is part two of my Battle of Britain duellist combo which I started with the Messerschmidt Me 109 E-4 of Helmut Wick a month ago : http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=71809 The Spitfire Mk.I was build based on the new kit from Revell which is designed as a Mk.IIa. Additional part used were : - Eduard Resin Cockpit - Eduard Resin Wheels - Quickboost Resin Exhaust - Yahu Instrument board - HGW belts - Eagle Parts resin oil cooler - Eduard PE-Exterior - Eduard Cockpit Masks - XtraDecal sheet for the markings of Dundas plane It was an easy and f
  8. This is correct , the fit of the engine cowling is not good because it is too narrow. I have solved this problem with the integration of a "spacer" made out of a spare sprue piece and some plastic card tabs to expand the cowling. Peter
  9. Hello Mikester , That's the great thing in a forum like this. Many thanks for giving me a hint with this mistake of mine. It will be easy to correct it and I hope that will be the only fault on my Emil. Peter
  10. Hi Kagemusha , The mottling was done with the sponge methode. I took a small part of the foam/sponge that comes with the Aires Cockpit set to do it. Just dipped it in RLM71 , pressed the sponge into a piece of kitchen roll until most of the paint is removed ( like drybushing ) and dab the sponge on the model. Believe me that I have tried that several time on some spare plastic parts before I was brave enough to do it on my model . Peter
  11. Hello , after 1,5 month of fun with this kit I would like to show my finished Bf-109 E-4 flown by German ace Major Helmut Wick in 1940. The kit is not perfekt and some small fit problems had to be solved , for example the oil cooler and the fit of the engine cowling. But nothing too serious and in my opinion still the best kit to build an acurate Emil. Hope you like it. Peter
  12. Hello , It have been some time that I have shown something new here. This is my Wingnut R.E.8 Harry Tate , working time on it was more or less four month because of my typically sommer idleness for modelling. Was a lot of fun to build. Everything went together easily like always with Wingnut kits. Not much words now , I hope you enjoy the pictures.
  13. Hello , It took me a month and a few days to finish this little bird from Wingnut Wings. Overall a relatively simple build compared with the two seaters I have worked on before this. Most challenging part was the alignment of the tree wings , especially because the connecting spots of the struts are very small. Riging was easy and it is a pity that this kit is sold out since 2012. I would like to do another one. Following the pictures , hope you like it.
