Wingnut Wings Albatros B.II early

Recommended Posts

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

Wow, that looks fantastic!! The wood is perfect! I have a Roden Albatros D.1 to put wood decals on, and I am terrified to try it on the curved surfaces. I should have been smart and bought one with flat sides!

Superb work Peter!

 

That is an excellent build.Are the wheels from an aftermarket company, if not, how did you do the spokes?....they look awesome.

Hi Jeff ,

 

the spoke wheels are made from PE-parts included in the kit in combination with plastik parts.

They are not easy to make but the result is worth the time spent on it.

 

Following a comparison betwenn the spoke wheels made with PE-parts and the plastik "alternative" , just made with two plastik parts.

Thanks for the info Peter,

 

The PE ones really do look good these days, I would have sworn they were  laced with rigging line or something.

 

......and yes, they look one hundred percent better than the alternative plastic wheels.

 

Cheer's,

Jeff.
