Howdy folks,

 

Some of you will be aware of Karim's fabulous build of the Wingnut Wings AEG kit. He and I have been collaborating on the process of turning into KLP Publishing's first title in the Build Guide Series: Building the Wingnut Wings AEG G.IV Late in 1/32 Scale:

Not only does it feature a detailed step-by-step guide to how Karim produced his fabulous model, but also dedicated tutorials on biplane rigging, and painting wooden propellors. Also included will be a set of walkaround photos featuring the Mercedes D.IVa engine located at the Royal Museum of the Army, in Brussels, Belgium.

 

And a couple of teaser images:

Keep an eye out on the website, or our Facebook page, for more information about this book, which I'll bring you as soon as it's to hand.

Great initiative! Hoping and awaiting for a Build Guide of modern jets... cheers.

 

I just need someone who can write them, Luca! But I'm sure it's an area we'll cover multiple times before we're done.

Looking forward to this one Kevin! Must have for many of us :)

 

Thanks, Jan. I don't have a release date as yet, as it's a rather large project. I estimate that Karim has sent me close to 1000 images so far! Of course, I'll only be including the best of them, but the process of selecting them and producing the layout just takes time. I will of course keep you guys updated!

I will definitely buy. Karim has many little secrets to teach me.   I'm looking forward to it, as I can say that his build of this aircraft is by far the best Wingnuts build I have ever seen. Period. It's absolutely flawless.

Kevin, I'll say this, and I know all modelers will understand what I say here when I say that it's an amazingly great experience being schooled in building by such a humble, gentle, and truly gifted gentleman.

 

Everyone here is a world class modeler, but there are two or three here who could be called the absolute best of the best. Karim is one of those.

And just the fact that much of the work is done out of a flight bag while in some hotel somewhere just boggles the mind.
