Finished using Aviatic CDL decals and Tamiya paints. Rigged with monofilament in the central section and EZ Line for the rest of the airframe.

Gaspatch terminals and Bobs Buckles completed the rigging process.

Wooden areas were accomplished using Uschi Van Der Rosten woodgrain decals.

The build including the base was completed in 6 months.

    Chers all!
    Craig, she lives under a custom made cardboard box until an acrylic case can be made. Also I re did the water with 2 part tesin which looks much better

  6. Awesome Brent.

  7. They wouldn't be my choice of modelling subject, but it is hard not to be impressed by these Wingnut Wings kits.
    And also the skill and precision needed to complete one might I add! Very impressive model.

    A true work of art. Absolutely magnificent!

  9. Six months : it is short for a so magnificent model. It'a an art work.

  10. Great presentation, Brent. You've got to have a real commitment to this type of modelling to see it through to a good standard, and you've certainly achieved that here. I know many modellers here prefer later subject types, but the skills displayed here are first rate and deserve praise.

  11. hi Brent, I have been trying for years to build the perfect model, and you just did, this is brilliant work. well done.

  12. Amazing model, Brent, like the others have already said, and it looks like an equally amazing prototype, hard to believe these things actually flew!

  13. Fantastic work Brent, both the kit and display base are wonderfully finished.
    A contender for the end of the month maybe?

  14. Stunning. I particularly am impressed by the weathering of the paint on the wings. Everything else is marvelous too.

  15. I agree with others. This is sick 🙂

  16. Wow! What great work, what a kit from WnW. Love the rigging, a really great piece of modelling.

  17. Wicked good work!

  18. Well build WNW kits are always a show stopper, this is one of those, brilliant work !

  19. Brent, welcome onboard iModeler, glad to see your first posting especially of this particular subject. Personally, I'm a fan of all British flying boats, this type included, and you have made terrific job with the kit. BTW how big is it when completed?

    • Hi Martin,
      I ove all things flying boat as well. I had to have this kit and it was a sometimes frustrating lobour of love! Glad you like her.
      The wingspan is 93cm and it's about 72cm long, the base measures 1 meter×500mm

  20. Wow - how did I miss this when it was first posted?! Stunning. Looks like 3 of those 6 months was getting the rigging perfect! (kinda why I stick to WWII and up...!)
