Wingnut Wings Hansa Brandenburg W29
I said I,d post the pics I took of this build. Apologies for them not really being magazine quality, but they were all done on my iPhone! Note to self…2015 resolution…invest in decent camera for photographing models!
Anyway, the kit is built out of the box, it goes together like a dream, is superbly detailed, and a very impressive model once finished. Everything written about Wingnut kits is true, they are magnificent in everyday, packaging, mould quality, decals and instructions.
I thought I,d share this with everyone as it is an unusual model. As a vintage aircraft, with its wooden construction, it is very different from the usual WW2 and modern subjects I usually build. It has led to me trying out and developing new painting skills, such as wood effect and laminated propeller painting. The build itself holds no challenges for a competent and reasonably experienced modeller.
All the upper surfaces are covered with decals, which were challenging, but being Cartograph, went on well and settled down with Micro Set and Sol. All the decals for the dials are a lovely touch, and really catch the eye on the finished model.
There are a set of beaching trollies and trestles with the model, that are still in the making, but the aim is to mount the model on these eventually.
All in all a very satisfying build, of something different, and it stands out uniquely amongst my other models. I have two other Wingnut kits, the DH9 Ninak, and Brisfit, which may get some attention soon, but will need to pluck up some courage around the rigging for those!
Hope you enjoy! Happy Christmas and New Year to everyone!
