DFW C. V (Wingnut Wings)

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

Finished in February 2019, this is my Wingnut Wings DFW C. V. It’s one of the best engineered kits I ever had the pleasure to build. I replaced the kit‘s struts with brass ones and made a prop from real wood, otherwise this one is oob — besides of the markings (the Names of the mechanics that served this plane)which are printed with my printer on clear decal film.

Figures are conversions from custom available plastic figures and Hornet resin heads using green stuff. The strange fixation for the additional forward firing Lewis was made according to a contemporary photo of this machine.


getting home without being shot down didn’t always mean that everything was alright…

















best regards,

this is crazy - so good! Amazing work. I just bought a WNW kit and this is very inspirational (and poetic - this is what it was to fly these things back then - they look pretty but we should never forget they were combat vehicles... with no parachutes ...)

Great build, and an even better diorama base, which gives a very human dimension to such a sad period.  Brilliant.
