  1. Hello fellow plastic junkies, I'm in the process of knocking up a Pup. Here is the cockpit assembly near complete barring seat and belts. More updates when orders calm down...See you here in 2040! Stay safe my friends. Von Buckle
  2. Sorry about being away for so long. Honestly, with the COVID-19 compounding our personal health issues, as well as our family's basic supply problems, I have been very busy with domestic needs/decisions, etc., with little or no time for scale modeling. But, having been introduced to scale modeling over 60 years, ago, I have seen a thing or two come and go. I remember when back in the '60's Adams, an excellent mold maker, fell out with Revell and decided to take the molds made for them, and market several top-quality scale U.S. armor kits under their own name. Now th
  3. OK, last one guys, I swear. This is my COVID-19 quarantine build and I'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out. As with the previous three, no real weathering to speak of and built mostly OOB with exception of HGW seatbelts in addition to the Vickers and double Lewis guns courtesy of Eduard Brassin. Sorry I didn't get any pics of the underside - I'm too damn scared to flip it upside down! As I mentioned in the introduction for the Junkers D.1 build I posted earlier, I'm really not at the point where I build for historical accuracy so this bird has features that were not inc
  4. Thought I should throw my hat in to the ring on this group build, rather than diving straight in with a Luftwaffe machine andafter looking at my stash I decided on this one which is the Wingnut SE.5a with Pheon's nightfighter decal set. Also need to move my G-4 conversion along as well now as I have had no chance to do any real modelling for the last month so cant wait to get cracking again. Regards. Andy
  5. Got another one for the gallery! I built this one a couple of months ago when I was in a little bit of a modeling funk so the goal was to build it cleanly and quickly (as a result, I decided not to fix the dreaded "gap" in the upper wing). Painted with Tamiya paints according to the WNW call outs. Only AM were the HGW seatbelts and the Master Models brass barrel for the LMG 14/17.
  6. Folks, Wanted to pass along some pictures of my recently completed early D.VII. This one gave me a little more trouble than the other WNW kits I've completed. Not sure why but I'm happy with the way it ultimately turned out. The only additions were the HGW seatbelts and the Master Models brass barrels. Hope you guys like it.
  7. Hey folks, I built this kit a few months ago and am just now getting around to posting some images of the finished product (no decent place to take pictures these days so my apologies for the poor quality images). As with all WNW kits that I know of, this one falls together and was a blast to build. This one was a completely OOB build with some minor detailing on the engine. As with a lot of my other builds, I'm not too strict about historical accuracy.
  8. Hi Folks, finally got the courage to upscale my old 1/72 Felixstowe decals - so they are off just now to the printers, hope they come in useful for some people here, thanks for looking.... 32D020 - Felixstowe F.2A N4283 32D021 - Felixstowe F.2A N4512
  9. Hello my friends, I have been quietly sitting in the background working away on my Sopwith Tripe. Well, today, she is complete (is a model ever complete?) and sitting in the case. I have this one image for now, but more will follow. I've been super busy of late and finding spare time to think, let alone modelling, is a blessing! More pics soooooon. Cheers, Von Buckles
  10. Hi everyone, Sopwith Camel bracing wires for Wingnut Wings kit off to the printers for test shot. Thanks for looking
  11. I have been busy with several large complex builds and realised that time was getting away from me with our local model show fast approaching. I searched the stash for a quick project that I could complete in time and challenged myself to actually finish something in time.......Oh look something shiny!! Focus Simpson I told myself and ended up choosing what I hope to be a project that fits the bill. 1, Quality kit that will actually fit together. 2. Simple air frame. 3. Cool looking. Here is what I went for. And here is the particular scheme.
  12. Wingnut's new Gotha UWD landed at my house today along with its (uglier...) land-based counterpart. For some reason this plane has always fascinated me, so everything else has been pushed aside to start this one. It's bloody gorgeous to see the plastic in person. Roughly the same length as the Gotha G.IV, with wingspan 2-3 inches shorter. The floats are massive, they are about as long as the span of the lower wing of an Albatros D.V! Day one: Cleanup of sprue stubs and mold separation seams, the floats and rear fuselage have been glued together and the three-piece lower wing has
  13. Some musings: WNW will be going for a few years yet, but looking at their kit releases (not including re boxes or ‘late’ versions) they seem to have covered most (let’s say 80-85%) of the well known types. ( Minus the Neiuport/ Dr1 and SPADs.) Would you agree? I also did a quick survey. Each boxing seems to be on the market for an average of about 3-5 years, depending on popularity. So eventually they will run out of options, but once again that will be quite a few years down the track... I don’t know whether them having a wider distribution network will spe
  14. Fokker D VII in the colours of The 15th Polish fighting squadron flown by the second lieutenant Antoni Bartkowiak , dated from the Bolshevik war in 1920, or immediately after. The condition probably after March 1921. The model covered in Aviattic decals, a few metal strips by HGW, KMs by Master and exceptionally good additions to the engine by Taurus Models. The propeller is hand made from veneer. Reborn Poland seized about 50 Fokkers D. VII as a trophy (former German airbases in Wielkopolska ) or purchased some from the producer- The OAW company in Piła within the borders of The T
  15. Just completed my 2nd WNW Albatros D.V. Finished in the markings of Adolf Schreder of Jasta 17 in March 1918. Aftermarket used; Aviattic Albatros lozenge with pink rib tapes, Uschi Knotless wood grain decals, WNW D.V Wooden Wonders decals, Taurus engine valve train & spark plugs, Flugzeugwerke fuel tank & engine interrupter gear train, HGW Albatros radiator & seat belt buckles. Added; seat belts from lead foil, engine & cockpit piping from wire, rudder bar foot stirrups from wire, cockpit fuel selector panel levers from brass photo etch pieces, rigging from transpare
  16. My first model from the Grat War Additives used Master Taurus The propeller was made by hand Painted Tamiya
  17. I recently received the WNW Clerget Camel specifically because I wanted to model Squadron Commander William Barker's Sopwith Camel...but first I had to build his Sopwith Snipe! This is my first WNW kit in years, and it was a really satisfying build. Pheon Decals, Tamiya paints, E-Z line, the new Vallejo Metal paints (awesome and odorless), and the little red devil from the Camel kit. If any of you have the Clerget Camel and aren't building Barkers version, I'd love an extra devil! Cheers, Tom
  18. 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
  19. Hi guys, I was planning to finish this one during upcoming weekend and post it to RFI, but will not be at my workbench sooner then on Friday. So just decided to post some WIP pictures here. This is my first WNW kit. And its really amazing. I'm working on it 4 weeks already. I went through several WNW builds to get some know how. This one is build OOB, paints are mostly based on WNW instructions for this kit. will take my time to make better pictures after it is done. thanks for looking jan Wings, elevator and rudder painted with tamiya acrylics. Already started with some
  20. Hi ! It's my last finished model. I started it about 2 years and a half ago, stopped and restarted it several times. I even stripped the whole fuselage and repainted it as i was not satisfied of my first try of the sponge camo (yes i had to redo the whole wood grain finish of the fuselage....). But finally it's done, and i'm happy with it. It's an Albatros built Albatros D.Va of the Seefrontstaffel 1, flight by Lothar Weiland It's built mostly OOB except the very nice HGW Daimler radiator, Master brass Spandau barrels and sleaves, and a few details from Taurus in the engine (valve
  21. Hi, Here is a build of mine, but actually it is idle at the moment (i will explain why...). I've starded it a few months ago, but put it apart, then restart it. I've done the cockpit, the engine, enclosed the fuse, painted the wings (but not very satisfied, i may repaint them later), and so on. The scheme i wanted to do is this one : So i started to make the wood first, and was very satisfied with the result (i did not wanted to use decals as anyway most of the plywood will be hidden by the sponge camo). Then i painted the tail yellow, with the former german cross visible by
  22. Not only my first WNW but my first post here as well. This was quite a change from the Luftwaffe stuff I'm used to doing and I don't do much in 1/32. Although WNW could have me rethinking this. Excellent kit (guess they all are). Fun all the way through like a book you can't put down. One question for those of you who have built this one. What's the deal with the port upper wing? I was thinking it was warped but both this and the other unbuilt in my stash are the same. Furthermore every online build I've seen, that port wing has a hump in it. Period pics don't show it and I can't imag
  23. Hello all As I have loved Felixstowe F.2a when I first learned of it and seen a built 1/72 Roden at a show. So I purchased the WNWs late Felixstowe F.2a. Most likely be building N4297 (WNW B version) light blue strips on white background. The instructions have 3 subversion's of the B version. So I'm looking at B2 or B3. What I ask is, Does this Felixstowe F.2a have flat rigging wire? If so I use Prym thread as it's flat. WNW asks you to use two different thicknesses 0.15mm and 0.20mm and show you a round style? But is both the thinner and thicker bracing wire flat? Or should I bother?
  24. 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
  25. Hello I have a Rolland C.IIa Late with the Windsock data file 49, Gaspatch Airspeed Indicator, and Taurus Models Valves. Now the questions. What Gaspatch Turn buckles do I use? I see I need either Albatros type or one ended at the Engine cowl. But what type at the other end at termination point on the wings? Any Figures that would work for this aircraft? Pilot seated, observer standing and with ground crew around? The plastic ones I'm not sure if they will work as the pilots in the sets are different form ModelKasten Cheers and thanks for the help
