  1. I guess the time has come to put my mouth where my money is!!! I have had the gauntlet thrown at my feet by Darren and I see that Mad Steve has also accepted the challenge so on we go with the Wingnut Wings Show. Like Mad Steve I have never built a Wingnut Wings kit before but I have been working up to the task by building various biplane kits over the last 12 months to get some experience in rigging and the general assemble sequence (it turns out you can't just throw them together then slap paint on, who would have known?). With the recent re-release of the popular Albatros D.V kits by W
  2. Well well well, whats all this then... There's a thread going on over in Modelling Chat about colour's for Wingnut Wings Kits. Between Duncan, Grunhertz and Paul Brown talking about how to make turnbuckles, they kind of kicked my mojo into gear to actually build one of these damn kits, instead of them just sitting on the shelf leering at me... (so come on you 3, I'll show you mine...) So here we are then, a Fokker Eindeker IV by Wingnut Wings I'm not going to waffle on about the runners, (ooh look at that etc), I'll just post pics of them.

    Pfalz Diiia

    Well its finished and what a fun time its been, this has been one of the most enjoyable builds for a long time, I will not be selling my WNW kits and I will be building them.
  4. Ok here we go then with my build, I last built a pfalz using the eduard 1/48 kit and was mighty impressed so I thought it was time to do another, and getting the chance to bull erm persuade some others into it means I'm not on my own this time so unlike duncan no aftermarket apart from Bob's buckles I haven't made my mind up yet on the scheme but I suspect the green one maybe the way to go
  5. 1:32 Hannover Cl.II ‘Early’ Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32079 Available from Wingnut Wings for $129.00, plus postage. The Hannover Cl.II was a two-man escort fighter, built by Hannoversche Waggonfabrik, and entering service in 1917. The Cl.II was a fast and lightweight aircraft which was more than capable of matching the manoeuvrability of some RFC fighters, given the right combat conditions. The machine itself had a lightweight construction, skinned by a very thin layer of plywood veneer, typically less than 2mm thick. The 'L' in 'Cl' stands for leicht, or 'light', in di
  6. 1:32 Gotha G.1 Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32045 Available from Wingnut Wings for $199.00 plus shipping The Gotha G.I was a heavy bomber used by the Luftstreitkräfte (Imperial German Air Service) during World War I. In mid-1914, Oskar Ursinus, the founder and editor of the German flying magazine Flugsport, began designing a large twin-engine seaplane of unconventional configuration. While most biplane designs have the fuselage attached to the lower wing, Ursinus had a snub-nosed fuselage attached to the upper wing, and twin engine nacelles mounted on the lower one.
  7. So this is My entry, The lovely Wingnut Wings DH2. Its going to be a tall order for me to do this in 3 months but hey in for a penny in for a pound. James Hatch said he did his in about 20 days but I'm not that quick unfortunately
  8. 1:32 Halberstadt Cl.II (Early) Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32049 Available from Wingnut Wings for $129USD plus postage The Halberstadt Cl.II was a highly successful escort fighter and infantry support aircraft that entered German service from late July 1917. It was very well regarded for its good visibility, climb rate, manoeuvrability, stability and ease of internal communication afforded by the close nature of the pilot and gunner. Early production aircraft had the main gun mounted to the left of the engine while late production aircraft had it mounted to the rig
  9. I am pleased to announce that following on from the arrival of the 'Manfred von Richthofen' Albatros (temporarily sold out) the other three recently announced "Aces" kits are now available from BlackMike Models for immediate delivery. For those not already aware the three kits are as follows: 32603 Fokker E.II Max Immelmann 32606 AMC DH.2 Lanoe Hawker 32607 Sopwith Triplane Raymond Collishaw These kits include 1/32 scale figures of the named pilots along with the kit.

  10. 1/32 Junkers D.1 Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32065 Available from Wingnut Wings for $79.00 plus shipping The Junkers D.I (factory designation J 9) was a monoplane fighter aircraft produced in Germany late in World War I, significant for becoming the first all-metal fighter to enter service. The prototype, a private venture by Junkers designated the J 7, first flew on 17 September 1917, going through nearly a half-dozen detail changes in its design during its tests. When it was demonstrated to the Idflieg early the following year it proved impressive enough to resul
  11. I have been lucky enough to source some of the Wingnut Wings kits that have recently sold out at Wingnut Wings. These kits are all out of production now and will not be available again once the current stock has sold out. The pick of the bunch for me is the SE5a Hisso and the Pfalz D.IIIa which I thought I'd never see again. The recently released (and even more recently sold out) Limited Edition Albatros Jasta 5 trio also makes a welcome encore. These will be arriving next week in very limited numbers and once they are gone i doubt we will see them again so don't dally if you fancy o
  12. Wingnut Wings have announced that their next release will be a Junkers D.1. I can see this kit being very popular with folk who have never built a WnW kit before, no rigging to speak of will make for an easier build. I am now taking pre-orders for this kit with delivery anticipated to be mid to late April. As always I am offering free postage within the U.K. and subsidised postage to international addresses. Head over to www.blackmikemodels.co.uk for more details. Duncan B
  13. 1/32 Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32073 Available from Wingnut Wings for $79 plus shipping The Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin was a British fighter aircraft manufactured by the Sopwith Aviation Company. It was used by the Royal Flying Corps and its successor, the Royal Air Force, during the First World War. In early 1917, the Sopwith chief engineer, Herbert Smith, began designing a new fighter (internal Sopwith designation 5F.1) powered by the geared200hp Hispano-Suiza 8B. The resulting Dolphin was a two-bay, single-seat biplane, with the upper wings attach
  14. Wingnut Wings have given us another Christmas surprise and have just released a Sopwith Dolphin (so now we know why there was a gap in the numbering of the Camels, actually there was 2 gaps!). The kit will take a few weeks to make it to many of the Distributors in Europe, mine has told me they expect their stock to arrive on the 22nd of December but obviously they have to clear Customs and then be taken into their stock before being dispatched out to me. So with that in mind I expect the kits to arrive with me sometime in the first half of January. As with previous Wingnut Wings rele
  15. 1/32 Albatros D.V/D.Va ‘Jasta 5’ Green Tail Trilogy Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32701 Available from BlackMike Models for £175.95 History The Albatros D.V was a fighter aircraft used by the Luftstreitkräfte (Imperial German Air Service) during World War I. The D.V was the final development of the Albatros D.I family, and the last Albatros fighter to see operational service. In April 1917, Albatros received an order from the Idflieg (Inspektion der Fliegertruppen) for an improved version of the D.III. The resulting D.V prototype flew later that month. The D.V closel
  16. As the title says the latest release from Wingnut Wings, the Jeannin Stahltaube (1914), has now arrived in stock at BlackMike Models. You can find it in the Wingnut Wings and New Releases sections of the BlackMike Models website. Duncan B
  17. 1/32 Jeannin Stahltaube (1914) Wingnut Wings Catalogue # 32058 Available from Wingnut Wings for $119 + shipping The Taube. Now there’s a story, indeed. I think it would be fair to say that most people with a reasonable knowledge of WW1 aviation would immediately think ‘Etrich’ when the word Taube (Dove) was mentioned. That is of course entirely fair, and I fall squarely into that category too, but behind the beautiful and graceful lines of the Taube comes a story of one man’s lack of foresight when it came to his aircraft design that was based on the publication of German pap
  18. Following hot on the heals of the Wingnut Wings Camels is the next release in the shape of the Fokker D.VII "Early" kit due to arrive in mid May. For more details follow the link: https://www.blackmikemodels.co.uk/products/wingnut-wings-32067-fokker-d-vii-early?variant=40275487508 Duncan B
  19. 1/32 Sopwith F.1 Camel “BR.1” Wingnut Wings Kit No. 32070 Available from Wingnut Wings for $79.00 plus shipping The Sopwith Camel was a British First World War single-seat biplane fighter aircraft introduced on the Western Front in 1917. It had been developed by the Sopwith Aviation Company as a successor to the earlier Sopwith Pup and would become one of the most iconic fighter aircraft of the First World War. The Camel had a mostly conventional design for its era, featuring a wooden box-like fuselage structure, an aluminium engine cowling, plywood panels arou
  20. 1/32 Sopwith F.1 Camel “Clerget” Wingnut Wings Kit # 32074 Available from Wingnut Wings for $79, plus shipping The Sopwith Camel was a British First World War single-seat biplane fighter aircraft introduced on the Western Front in 1917. It had been developed by the Sopwith Aviation Company as a successor to the earlier Sopwith Pup and would become one of the most iconic fighter aircraft of the First World War. The Camel was typically powered by a single Clerget 9B rotary engine and was armed with twin synchronized .303 Vickers machine guns. Though proving diffi
  21. I am very pleased to announce that BlackMike Models will be an official stockist of Wingnut Wings models with first deliveries arriving very soon. Watch the BlackMike Models website for their arrival. For orders or more information e-mail me at info@blackmikemodels.co.uk Duncan B

  23. Hi folks, If you've never built a biplane before, the DH.2 is perhaps the last one you want to consider. For me, it was a sort of dare, and this is the result. It took a little over 3 weeks to complete, and rigging is with EZ-Line, except for the 2lb fishing line I used for the fuselage booms. This is necessary as the rigging on this must support the fragile structure. A really nice kit to build!
  24. Hi all, Eindecker: simply means one platform, or wing, constituting a monoplane. Wingnut Wings' kit is hard to resist with the gorgeous detail throughout. I used GasPatch turnbuckles for rigging, along with EZ-Line. Fuselage castor staining is done with finely applied Tamiya Smoke. Apparently, so much atomised castor got into the system of the pilots, that they used to suffer from an upset stomach and raging tom-tits also.
  25. This is the Wingnut Wings SE.5a, built with quite a few scratchbuilt details, and some of the stuff included in the HGW super detail kit. It's finished with Pheon decals representing the machine of Capt. J. H. Tudhope (40 Sqdn.). I also used the Pheon corrected fin and rudder. It's a brilliant kit. I must get another WnW kit sometime. This is probably my favourite model and it has a lot of sentimental value too.
