This is my fourth Airfix Spitfire. I can't make my mind up which schemes to do! I know I want two early and two late though.

Can't wait to try Peter's extras for the cockpit.

 

I might start the Hurricane too - I need more time!

 

I have got the same kits.

I decided to wait for an aftermarket seat to be released to start the Airfix's Spitfire.

As I stated in another thread, glad I'm not into duplicates! (I did wonder why the late version is 129EUR and the early 155 though, the early only has one small sprue extra)

Have fun building them!

Thank you, I will!

 

One Hannover is earmarked for a Cl.III conversion. There are some interesting DFW marking options and you can backdate this one into the "Mid" one, parts are all there on the sprues. Also the DFW is not in need of Lozenge decals so one less to run in trouble with large decal sheets. The last of each of the multiple kits will be sold when time has come.

I wanted the AEG that much I bought both versions just to get at least one kit. But I've got both and I am glad about this. The early one will be build but I have not decided yet if I build the late version too. Time will tell.

 

Well, I've told my wife that I have to retire next month to find the time to build my WNW kits :D

And she is glad I've got all of them. No fuss about the price tag. She knows what a WNW kit is and how scarce they are nowadays. Best wife of all :wub:

Yep, Wives are THE BEST! Darlene gave me almost all of my WNW's collection over the years as Bday and Xmas gifts. 

 

Dutik, check out KLP publishing, they do a great ebook on building the AEG and Albatros.

 

Thanks for the plug, sir! Here are the Wingnut Wings Build Guides currently in our catalogue:

Each of them features information on rigging. And we have another Wingnut Wings build guide in the works. Stay tuned for that one!

Yep, the KLP AEG book is on top of my wish list. Written by none less than our famous Karim Bibi. :speak_cool: Had a week ago a peek at KLP home page, it's a must have, indeed. Also useful to build other WNW kits. Alas I am somewhat low of modelling budget at the moment due to my newly grown WNW stash... :tumble:  Not to mention that I've spent my last bucks for a Halberstadt CL.II (the last one before it was sold out) and a few Windsock datafiles.

 

But it is on my wish list for this quarter. Great stuff @LSP_Kevin ! Just selling some other stuff at ebay to earn some fresh modelling money (and to make room in the cabinet too)...

Oops! forgot to mention the Felix, sorry about that Kev, it's a great book too. 

A new WNW book eh?? any hints as to the subject?

 

If you follow Gary (Felixstowe author) on Facebook, you'll already know. But if not, it's a single-engine type in the vein of the Albatros.
