  1. First, a quote from Flying Fever by AVM S F Vincent (Jarrolds, 1972), which is an excellent read, although alas long out of print. "[The date is early 1917. Major Robert] Smith-Barry, my previous CO in No 60 Squadron, had left almost in disgrace, because he had complained so much and so frequently about the abysmal state of training of the pilots sent out [to France] to fight. Eventually the War Office took note and said, in effect, 'If you think you can do any better, come home and do so.' He was given the training squadrons at Gosport which were formed experimentally into the School of S
  2. Hi guys! Finally, we are ready to introduce some new Proper Plane products! We have spent a huge amount of time and effort to create a unique high quality product. We would like to thank Dave Douglass for his professionalism, endurance and patience. Dave, you are the godfather of this project. Many thanks! It is a perfect carry bag for the connoisseur of Great War Aviation. The bag measures 35cm x 42cm (14in x 17in), is tough and durable, and fully washable as it’s made up of 80% polyester and 20% cotton. The perfect companion for hobby shopping or general shopping!
  3. Hello , two weeks ago I have started the next Wingnut kit , as promissed it is the Sopwith Triplane , a kit that is sold out since 2012. I had luck to get one last year in an auction , but the price was sky high , don't ask me . But luckily our hobbies don't need to be economicaly correct , so I don't care to much , if I want it I get it somehow. The good thing on the Tripe is that is is an relatively easy to build plane , not too much parts and not much rigging. A fun project , so let's get it on. The obligatory box picture. The version I want to build is the only fr
  4. Hi guys, This is my first WnW kit. It was absolutely relaxing OOB build. Used Tamiya and GSI acrylics mainly, and Ammo weathering product for finish. I did rigging in easy way, with no turnbuckles, just silver paint. At the end, to be honest, I'm not satisfied with outcome. Even turnbuckles are not so prominent on Snipe, on my next WnW project will use at least some grey tubes. And yes, didnt use the flat rigging. But will try on my next biplane, which should be postwar Dh.9a Coastal Kits insignia base used for display. WIP link: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?sho
  5. Well gents my last couple of WIPs/builds have really gotten the better of me, and although I will return to them at some point, I need a feel good sanity check build. Something I can actually complete. Something I can work on and feel good about it being 100% OOB. Although Im not normally a WWI guy, there is no better feel good build IMHO than a WnW kit. Ive always wanted to try my hand at a Inter-war machine, and loved to try to incorporate some foiling in as well. I thought there would be no better kit suited, than a WnW late Sopwith Snipe, from 17 Sqn in 1924, with all silver dope paint
  6. Hi ! Here is my first finished WNW model (i still have 2 on the bench). It was a pain to rig, but i think it is most because it's the first time for me. That was not very difficult, but very long. The kit is very nice, as usual with WNW kits. It's pretty simple with not too much parts. The paint job is also pretty simple, but monocolor schemes are not the easiest to do, if you want to make it cool (not flat color with no variation, boring like death to look at....). I find it a bit too dark, but it depends a lot of the ambiant light, so i dont really know. The good point with british PC i
