Mike amazing that it was included in the kit. I have never seen a "Wings nut Wings" kit. What is your experience with them in regards to mold integrity, fit and finish? If there are any short comings, what might they be?

@Sandbagger:

I've just started Hasegawa's 1:16 scale Camel (these old eyes and and clumsy hands don't do smaller scales so well any more), and I have to say that the work you're doing here in 1:32 is truly inspirational! Do you plan to cloth&dope the model or leave it bare?
In any event, 'eager to see more of your progress.
cheers,

Rob:
If you ask anyone who is into WW1 aircraft models they will doubtless say Wingnut Wings (WNW) are right at the top regards quality, accuracy and reference/instructions information.
They started out in 2009 since when they've released many models, all in 1:32 scale. In fact they will be releasing the WW2 Lancaster in the same scale in 2019 - a departure for them from WW1.
I've many models in my stash, from the likes of not only WNW, but Roden, HPH, Omega, Aviattic, Special Hobby, Hobby Craft, Academy and Planet, but none compare to WNW.
If they have a 'problem' it's only that the tolerances of the kit parts are so well engineered that care needs to be taken regards part joints. The slightest build up of primer, paint or sealing coats in any joint will cause the parts not to fully seat together.
The kits are not cheap but I guess you pay for what you get.

YM:
I've not built in 1:16 but I have seen some pretty spectacular models built.
As for this model, it'll be 'fully clothed', although I am planning to build a dual Fokker D.VII model with one complete and one 'skeleton' stripped and showing all of the structure, controls etc, with a figure of Anthony Fokker stood between them.
I'm also planning another dual display of a Fokker Eindecker alongside a modern day Luftwaffe Typhoon, with the two pilots looking at each others aircraft.
One day that is!!

Thanks for that Mike. I suspected as much and your confirmation is appreciated.
Yorke idea for those two Dios sounds really good.

Hi all,
It's been a few weeks since I posted for this build - been on vacation.
Anyway the two figures are completed now - Barker himself and his mechanic (who will be working on the engine cowl).
I'm currently cutting and applying the 'Aviattic' linen effect decals to the models (light PC12 and CDL) - a time consuming job as they are not cookie cut, so accurate paper templates need to be cut first then used to trace the outline onto the decals sheet.

Great, now I feel really silly for being proud of my handiwork after crudely painting a chintzy barely-any-assembly-required plastic kit of the Memphis Belle.

Hi all,
The linen effect decals for the CDL are on now.
The photo is in strong light and doesn't really show the slight applied pre-shading very well.
These and the PC12 decals are basic and will be weathered etc later in the build,

Mike

That's an awesome piece of info - thanks so much for sharing! I've been doing a little bit of skinning for the Pre-Release Flying Circus Vol. 1, do you mind if I include the facts from your write-up in my post if I end up doing B6313?

Edit: By the way, a section of B6313's vertical Stabiliser (the section with the heart insignia on it) is on display in Hendon's RAF Museum. It's really cool, and worth checking out!

Hi Rob,
No it's not tape but a slight gap I left to allow me to weather along the edges without damaging or lifting the 'Aviattic' linen decals.
Even when sealed the decals can be easily damaged if handled too much, so I wear lint free gloves once the decals are on,

The direction of the arrow head is correct for the last version of B6313's scheme.
The earlier version had the arrow head pointing down and towards the bottom rear of the fin,

Someday, Mike, someday... and I only have about 6 kits in my stash!

Hi all,
The model is progressing now.
The 'Aviattic' linen effect decals have had the kit decals added, plus decal black/white stripes.
After sealing it's all have a 'Flory' Dark Dirt wash and 'Tamiya' weathering master highlights.
The final weathering will be 'AK Interactive' oil/kerosene enamel for engine staining.
Then it's on to pre-rigging and assembly,

Mike
