  1. So this will be my contribution to the 'Multi Engine' anniversary GB. I will attempt to convert the Wingnut Wings Felixstowe F.2a flying boat into one of the first real passenger/airways aeroplanes. The Aeromarine 75 were surplus US Navy Curtiss F-5-L flying boats from WWI, which were converted into carrying passengers. The original company 'Aeromarine West Indies Airways', was one of the first international airlines in the United States. Aeromarine began operating flying boats in 1920, transporting passengers, mail, and freight from the United States mainland to the Baham
  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. Firs
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. Hello , Inspired by the excellent wip from tucohoward I decided to build my WnW DWF late in the same way as he did. So I have to start here with a great sorry for the copy version I have build. So , what can I say about this kit ? It is excellent like the other ones I have build before from this company. No problems , perfect fit and a lot of detail oop. Was a great fun to build and relatively easy finished within 1,5 months. Only aftermarket parts I used were textile safety belts from HGW and a mixture of Eduard Resin and Master PE-Barrel for the Parabellum 14 MG. Without much
  9. Hello , I have started this very enjoyable build in November 2016 and because of it's relatively simple construction finished it in only 1,5 months. Buil was straitforward , the parts fit excellent and the only aftermarket parts used where textile belts from HGW and a Parabellum 14 MG with mixed parts from Eduard Brassin and Master barrel. I can recommend this kit very much for WW1 beginners because it has very few rigging lines ( only the stirring lines for the rudders ). Without too many word , here are the pictures , hope you enjoy.
  10. Hello everybody , after an unexpected long building time of 3,5 months I have now finished my Fe2b , one of the most challenging but very enjoyable kit from Wingnut Wings. Not really complicated to build but the amount of struts and rigging is nothing for unpatient people ( like I'm used to be sometimes ). But I would do it again and recommend it to everyone who is looking for something special. Not to many words , here are the pictures. Hope you like them.
  11. 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
  12. I had it long time waiting till starting this wonderful kit..... the HANSA BRANDENBURG W.29 in scale 1/32 by Wingnut Wings. There is nothing unsaid about this amazing kit so that I do not want to loose time.... and start directly with the first pictures of it..... The engine.... I added some wire and replaced some parts with thin plastic pipes ..... and painted all in black / iron. The iron was polished aferwards before adding some oil paint, drybrushing and pigments to it ..... All interior parts got a primer with brown lifecolor, before making the wooden parts wi
  13. She's all done and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out - here's the end result of the build, the original thread begins below the photo Well ADHD got me again, so sue me, this makes # 29 in progress. Have started building Wingnut's Fok. D.VII (OAW) with the goal of having it done no later than April 25th. The large local contest on the 26th has the WWI theme and I plan to take all of my completed wingnuts kits to display. This one will be the Sieben Schwabben (7 Swabians), available on this wingnuts decal sheet. Lozenge decals will be Aviattic and I can tell you
