  1. 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
  2. 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. First a few in progress pictures :

  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. 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 french one , an easy decision because all the other ( english ) version are in very boring overall PC12 , while the french is in PC10 with wooden cockpit cover and aluminium engine cowling. Much more appealing to me.
  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. Hi, Like most of my recent WIP thread, it's about a build that i've started for a while. But i just try to FINISH things ! So, it's the Special Hobby kit, it will be built OOB, except the decals (Begemot) and a few small additions or rather replacement. It will be a Dux made Nieuport 11, with the dull silver grey paint typical of russian built Nieuport and with a skull on the rudder (badass !), and quite dirty. The kit is quite good, like any other Special Hobby kit (i love them !), but let's be honnest, that's not Wingnut Wings. However, i'm sure that it can give a great model that wont be a shame besides a WNW model. The supplied engine is cast in resin, which is a good idea. The problem is that it's pretty bad. The quality is good but it doesn't look like a Le Rhône 9C. The cylinders are too skinny and the copper intake pipes look very thin. In fact, that's what made this build stalled : i need a replacement for that engine. The best answer is the WNW Le Rhône 9C, i first wanted to buy some spare but it's long OOP. So i can take it from my last Sopwith Pup kit and as i plan to make other builds with the same engine (another Nie11, a Nie21...), so i need to make copies. And that's what i started to do today. Let's start with the begining. The cockpit. I drilled the seat so it looks like a Nieuport seat. I painted the wood grain on the wooden parts and then installed the bracing wires with Gaspatch 1/48 turnbuckles. Then the cockpit assembly continues. Here besides a Tamiya extra fluid jar. It's really tiny ! The full assembly with the side frames required tricky clamping !
  8. 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.
  9. Hello , For now two and a half year I am addicted to Wingnut Wings and have build nothing else in that time. If you have ever tried to build one of their kits you know what quality is and don't want go back to normal stuff. For me it is the first time to start a full building thread on this forum , before I have only posted final pictures in Ready for Inspection. I guess most of you know the DH9A Ninak , it was one of the latest planes developed during WW1 on british side. It was powered with a ( for it's time ) very strong 400 hp V12 Liberty engine and with it's top speed of 192 km/h it was on the same level as most single seater fighters. The kit comes with 295 parts and will be a nice challenge with a lot of rigging and large size. So let's get it on , this is the box photo : And the version I want to build is the one from the box cover. Every big thing starts with small parts , the first thing I did was to improve the kit parts for the Lewis ammonition drums with PE from HGW. Hope you like this "old" planes and follow this thread with comments and tips for improvement. Peter
  10. 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 (valves and rockers, sparkplugs...) and a few scratch built stuff. The rigging was made with EZ line and Gaspatch turnbuckles, with also a few microtubes cut to lenght. Painting the laminated wood with a realistic way was the last challenge of the build and took me about a whole day. But i think it was worth it, and i will reuse this technique for sure. It built smoothly as the fit is excellent, with no bad surprise. There is only one thing i always find scary with WNW kits : the undercariage is very soft, even a bit elastic. Recently i built a Nieuport 11 from Special Hobby, and the undercarriage is very stiff and looks strong, while the WNW undercarriage struts of my WNW models seems to be made of jello when even the slightest movement hit the model. Anyway, even soft and flexible, it seems to carry the weight of the model without any problem, so i think it's ok. Here is the link to the WIP thread : http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=51336 Thanks for looking ! Nicolas
  11. 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 transparancy. Everything was going smooth. And then the tragedy : the camo. I totally missed up this damn camo. And because i'm dumb, i started to put on decals.... So at the moment, this nice model is waiting for her paint to be clean off, and i will repaint it all. With the same scheme (i'm a bit masochist....). So here are a few pictures of the cockpit, sorry for the bad quality (i forgot to shot more pictures before closing it) : It was a pain to put the control cables on the small pulleys (and make them straight !), but except that, i really enjoyed building it.
  12. 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 is that there is a lot of possibilities with no absolute truth, you can go from brown to green, that's interesting if you dont want to paint each time the same color. The weathering is done with AK washes, and i applied a neutral wash from MIG on the rigging lines to break the white and give a more dirty/oxyded steel look. I hope i've not overdone the weathering as it is very muddy on the underside. I hope you like it ! Here is a tiny bit of a WIP on another forum. It's pretty short, but there are a few WIP pictures : http://fighters.forumactif.com/t67055-1-32-sopwith-pup-wnw
