    Fokker D.VII WnW

    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 Third Reich at the time. These dealings were not fully legal, the planes were provided by German pilots by air- they 'lost' the way from Piła nad landed at The Ławica airport 'by mistake'. After being paid, they returned by train.
  2. 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 transparent thread colored with a silver Sharpie and micro brass tubing to simulate turnbuckles. Base paint undercoat & tail are enamels, metal items were Alclad & Metalizer, the 'Grey - Green' was Tamiya acrylic. Weathering was done using oils & pastels. Hope you like & thanks for looking. All comments, suggestions, etc. welcome. Larry
  3. 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

    Next Junkers D.I

    My first model from the Grat War Additives used Master Taurus The propeller was made by hand Painted Tamiya
  5. 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
  6. 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.

  7. 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 scratch effects on roundel decals my first attempt in wooden finish, painted with oil (raw umbra) and fine brush.Aluminium painted with Alclad, wood and red primer effect looks darker on photo. Used brown wash for interior.
  8. 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

    WnW Albatros D.Va

    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.
  10. 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 imagine it would fly if it was really that different from the starboard. I got some of it out of mine but not nearly enough I think. So here we go... hmmm...there seems to be some difficulty getting the full size images. Oh well I'll figure that out for next time. Don't have a fancy signature. guess I'll work on that next. Thanks for looking. b

    Wingnut Wings Felixstowe info

    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? Control wires is round right? Also what Gas Patch Turn Buckles and ends do you recommend for the Felixstowe F.2a? I also have Windsock Datafile 82 on the Felixstowe F.2a. What References are a must for learning more about this aircraft. Or a understanding of WW I aircraft. I find that it's hard to find info on this subject matter. It's not an Albatross or Me-109 I ask this as I try to gather all items and references needed for my kits! http://www.wingnutwings.com/ww/productdetail?productid=3116&cat=3 Cheers Danny

    1/32 Sopwith Pup

    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

    Rolland C.II Wingnut wings

    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 Danny
  14. Hello together, Here is my next project...... Wingnut Wings Fokker D.VII in red color, pilot Ernst Udet. The legendary Fokker D.VII is widely considered the best German fighter aircraft to emerge from the Great War, it was certainly the most numerous and as such was the only aircraft specifically requested to be surrendered in the Allies armistice terms. In early 1918 the young Jasta pilots were mainly equipped with Albatros D.Va, Pfalz D.IIIa and the Fokker Dr.1 Triplane which were no match for the SE.5a, SPAD 13 and Sopwith Camels that they faced each day. Fokker’s prototype D.VII (the V.11) impressed the front line pilots present at the First Fighter Trials in January-February 1918 so much that word soon started to leak out about a new Fokker that would once again return air superiority to the Germans. So great was the need for this promising new fighter that, in addition to production at Fokker, Albatros were ordered to manufacture it under license at their Johannisthal (Alb) and Schneidemühl (OAW - Ostdeutsche Albatros Werke) factories, incidentally building almost twice the number of D.VII as Fokker! In keeping with previous Fokker design practices the D.VII featured a welded steel tube fuselage and tailplane along with thick ‘high lift’ wings of conventional wood construction with steel tube frame ailerons. A few early production machines were powered by the 180hp Daimler-Mercedes D.IIIa but most production aircraft were fitted with the 200hp D.IIIaü, although a small number received the new Bayerische Motoren Werke 185ps BMW IIIa (rated at 230hp by the British) ‘altitude’ engine. Interestingly, although only shown in a handful of known photos, some late production Fokker D.VII were powered by the long outclassed 160hp Daimler-Mercedes D.III engine. Initially supplied in small number to the most experience pilots of the elite Jagdgeschwader 1 from late April 1918 the Fokker D.VII quickly started to make a name for itself and allied pilots suddenly found that they could no longer count on their superior performance at higher altitudes. Supplies of the BMW IIIa were very limited with almost all available engines being allocated to the Fokker factory who designated D.VII powered by this engine the Fokker D.VII F. A small number of BMW IIIa engines reached the Albatros and OAW factories and were fitted into D.VII airframes but they did not receive any special designation such as Fokker’s ‘F’. The exact number of BMW IIIa powered D.VII produced is not known. By the end of the Great War the Fokker D.VII was the main aircraft type equipping the German Jastas and despite the Daimler-Mercedes powered D.VII being very well received, it was the Fokker D.VII F fitted with the coveted BMW IIIa ‘altitude’ engine that all Jasta pilots longed to fly. Any history of this important aircraft here is of necessity very brief so we encourage you to seek out any, or all, of the references listed below. (origin: website of wingnut wings) ... and that's it: Origin: www-deutscheluftwaffe-de I will use the gaspatch models rigging parts for the kit. Hope you will like the next project Cheers Michael
  15. HI All, I recently purchased a Silhouette Portrait craft cutter and, of course, I had to use it as soon as it arrived. As a test subject, I have chosen Wilhelm Hippert's Fokker D.VIIF. I used the native software to trace a scan of the "Mimmi." lettering on the top wing and then cut a stencil using a sheet of Tamiya masking material. Unfortunately, in my excitement to use my new toy, I failed to take pictures, but here are the results. I sourced the lozenge decals from Aviattic. These look fantastic. Rib tape was post-shaded with Tamiya smoke and both upper and lower surfaces where given a burnt umber filter. Finally, the whole thing was sealed with Vallejo satin clear coat. Here are a couple of pictures. I'm now going to get started on the cockpit and follow the instructions in order. Build updates will follow and I will fully illustrate the application of the Aviattic decals to the lower wings, as well as using the craft cutter to generate masks for the black and white checker board pattern on the fuselage. I do have a question for those of you who have build one of these kits already. Does anyone know if the completed cockpit interior will slide into place in an assembled fuselage from the front? This would make masking the fuselage much easier. Thanks for stopping buy and everyone keep up the good work. Dave
