Early vs. Late?

Recommended Posts

What's the difference with Wingnut models that are listed as early vs. late? Specifically, I'm looking to purchase the AEG G.IV but I'm not sure if this is about the plane or the release of the kit.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, so this is basically the way of identifying block productions and/or identifying a variant of that era. Of course, given the time period, pretty much every plane was a variant of the one before (intended or not)  :^]

 

Looks like I'll have to dig deeper in finding out which AEG G.IV I want then. Thanks again.

The instructions, which are freely available for viewing on the WNW website describe the differences between the early and late types. They were that the rail for the nose gun was different and the arrangement of the rear internal bomb racks.

Amen!

 

Alas I'm but a pauper with a dream and a bottle of glue. 

 

Anyway, thanks for the heads up on how to differ the two. I'll definitely check those instructions out.

Well.... I'd buy the Datafile, and I like the gaspatch guns. I haven't gone for one of the HGW sets yet

LOL, now everyone will know the reason for my divorce. This hobby is proving to be much like a cocaine habit... just a lot more expensive.

 

Btw, I'm not that versed on WWI aircraft, but the moment I saw this built in Air Modeller's Guide to Wingnut Wings, I was hooked.

That guide is a nice marketing brochure ain't it?
