Seems like you're taking more effort into building it than them designing it! biggrin
Keep it up Mike, I love seeing your work

Hi all,
I'm just waiting for the display case and propeller to complete this build.
As soon as it is done I'll post some photographs.

Thanks to everyone who followed and commented on this build - much appreciated,

Mike

Hi all,
I forgot the figures.
I'm not much of a figure painter, but I add them to my models primarily for scale effect.

‘Wings Cockpit Figures’ - (Seated pilot LSK 07A) - butchered somewhat to fit into the cockpit.

Hi all,
I thought you might like to see my 1:32 scale build - The German ‘Hansa-Brandenburg W.20’.
This model is from ‘Omega Models’ and is resin.
This aircraft was a single seat float, designed to be carried in a water tight container on a type of submarine.
The intention was to surface and remove the aircraft from its container, assemble it then launch it for reconnaissance missions.
After landing near the submarine, it was be taken onboard, disassembled and stowed back in its container.
The special submarines were never built before hostilities ceased and the three prototypes were eventually put into storage.

The basic list of changes/additions to the model are:

Engine:
The resin engine replaced with the equivalent engine from ‘Wingnut Wings and detailed with Nickel-Silver valve push rods and copper wire ignition leads.

Propeller:
The resin propeller was replaced with a special made wood laminate from ‘ProperPlane’.

Modified or corrected:
All wing, float and tailplane resin struts were replaced with hand made Brass Tube struts with internal Brass rod.
The entire engine support frame was hand made using Brass tube and rod.
Rigging is 0.08 mm or 0.12 mm diameter mono-filament with ‘GasPatch’ 1:48th scale turnbuckles and 0.5 mm or 0.4 mm diameter blackened Brass tube.
Animation of the ailerons, rudder and elevators achieved by cutting out with Brass rod supports.

Aftermarket additions:
‘Aviattic’ Clear linen effect (ATT32236).
‘Aviattic’ German Naval Hex (faded) (ATT32113).
‘GasPatch’ Elite Accessories 1:48th scale metal Turnbuckles.
‘Wings Cockpit Figures’ 1:32 scale Seated pilot (LSK 07A).
‘Elan Miniatures’ 1:32 scale German Naval pilot (EL19).
‘Elan Miniatures’ 1:32 scale RFC Mechanic (modified) (EL41).
Coastal Kits’ 1:32 scale Abandoned Airfield Display Base (modified for 3D effect).

As usual I've created a downloadable build log in Adobe PDF format, for those who might want to refer to it for reference or build details. It contains full step by step descriptions of the model build, its modifications/changes and is also supported with illustrations and photographs. If viewed in Adobe Reader, each build log has book marked chapters/headings for easier navigation through the log.
My model website has the gallery page, so to view any model, go to the gallery and select it. If it has a PDF build log, it will be available to download using the 'PDF' icon on that models photo's page. For any photograph, just click the photo to enlarge or reduce the viewing size.

Absolutely outstanding Mike.


They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
