  1. 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
  2. I have recently finished reading "Winged Victory" by VM Yeates. I highly recommend it and it has inspired me to break out my WNW kits. I was so inspired that I have started all three - an Albatross DV, a Fokker DVII (OAW) and a Camel BR1. I thought I could move these along together but am finding them so difficult that they will follow one after the other. I am concentrating on the Albatros for now. As these are my first WNW, I have a few observations. Anyone who builds these kits and produces a great result is a genius as far as I am concerned. The fitting of the parts is so t
  3. 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
  4. More building to support the WWI anniversary. Beginning to love these 1/72 kits as they are quick builds and I like the wide range of colors to play with. I am a LITTLE over the top on the colors but hey, why not! I'm already pretty well started but here is the update. Fuselage decals tomorrow I hope. These are fun kits. Chris
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Since I've been building parts of so many kits lately and flipping between the subjects so quickly, I'm going to maintain this thread as my own WWI group build and try to keep the content coming frequently so that no-one gets bored and so that it looks like I'm actually progressing on things. Currently on the go are the following Wingnut kits and the photos below show their levels of completion: 2x Albatros D.V, a Pfalz D.IIIa, a Gotha, and also I've started dry-fitting bits from the early Felixstowe. The single-seaters are being done as quick builds so I have done, or will be doing, only
  8. Slight change in plans here. Owing to an absence of what I require to finish my Ki-61 for our regional next year (and for some other reasons as well), I've decided instead to pursue the Roden Albatros D.III, in Jasta 17 markings. This will be done mostly OOB, but with some AM thrown at it, most notably a WNW Mercedes, Master Spandau's, Taurus and Barracuda engine dress up parts, and perhaps the Part P.E. set, though I don't really feel that's needed, as such. Obligatory box shot. This kit, and a few others, were very generously gifted to me by our own LSP_Ray. Thanks again, Ray, I apprecia
