WingNut Wings Fokker E.II.
This is my latest completed WingNut Wings kit…
It’s the Eindecker flown by Otto Kissenberth in January 1916.
The cowling is done in Alclad Aluminium with the swirls applied with a silver chromatic pencil and a soft 2b graphite pencil.
The model is covered with Aviattic’s wonderful “French Linen” decals and the castor oil stains are done with a combination of oil paints and Tamiya clears in layers.
I’ve also added a GasPatch Spandau and rigged it with a combination of Maxima fishing line for structural integrity and Modelkasten elastic for the warping and control lines.
The attachment points and turnbuckles are Bob’s Buckles and GasPatch with Griffon tubing.
The propeller was done with both Tamiya acrylics and oils in a dissimilar media glazing style.
The rest of the decalling is from the kit.
I was lucky enough to pick up first place for large scale aircraft in the Sydney Scale Model Show last week with it.
