Hi all,
I thought you might like to see the start of my next Wingnut Wings model - the Hansa-Brandenburg W.29 (CM3G version), No.2512 flown by Oberleutnant Friedrich Christian Christiansen of ’Seeflugstation 1’, from Zeebrugge in Belgium during July 1918.

So far I've completed the cockpit, which is now enclosed in the fuselage.
I'm currently modifying the Benz III engine supplied in the kit, which although good, either lacks detail or what detail is pre-molded needs to be changed.

The W.29 was a two seat float plane and as such is much larger than most of the single seaters I've built thus far.
I'm hoping to have this model on a water effects base - we'll see.

Who knows - with the release of WOTR I might have to consider WW2 kites in the future, but not right now.

Mike

Looking very good Sir! Can I assume the white stripes plastic running across the fuselage is for easy handling while painting?

Hi Rob,
Easy mistake to make given the glare on the photos.
Actually it's a metal wing spar supplied with the kit.
The model is a monoplane, but as it carried a crew of two, not to mention to large floats, the wings were necessarily large.
The metal spar is needed to support the weight of the wings,

Mike

Water pump coolant supply pipe added.

Hi all,
The four crank case vents were cut from the photo-etch from 'RB Productions' - ‘RB Productions’ Radiator Mesh (RB-T027). These will be attached to the engine
after it has been painted, when they can be ‘weathered in’.

The engine control linkage is 0.4 mm Nickel-Silver micro-tube for the rods and 0.12 mm copper wire wound around 0.3 mm micro-tube. Again these will be fitted after the engine is installed.

Mike

Hi all,
Well the engine is done as far as I can go, so now it's onto the airframe.

That is amazing!

The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,
From out of my arse take the camshaft,
And assemble the engine again."
