I like airplanes in the early days of flight. The airplanes of the times when it was only aimed at flying were totally different from modern weapons of mass destruction.
I want to make planes of this period steadily from now on.
The purpose of this article is to describe the construction of this great model in 1/32 from Wingnuts. So periodically i'll update it with new images. Stay tuned :)
Despite being in awe of the WW1 fighters I had stayed away from building them for many years due to the lack of decent kits in my preferred scale of 1/32, as well as, the inherent challenges of the breed. Then I heard of this fantastic, at the [...]

added detail to the Mercedes engine include scratch built spark plugs, valve springs, spark plug wires, and assorted cables.

The cowling is done in Alclad Aluminium with the swirls applied with a silver chromatic pencil and a soft 2b graphite pencil.
This is one of my older builds. I was really keen to build this model and it was my first attempt at aWingnut Wings kit.
Rigged with EZ line - I was a bit dubious (and still am) about how long this stuff would last before it started[...]
Hi all, this is my first post but not my first model! I typically build Australian Flying Corps subjects and so the Snipe was a long awaited addition to my collection.
