1/32 WNW Albatros DV

December 20, 2015 · in Aviation · · 15 · 1.7K

This was my first build of a Wing Nut Wings Kit and wont be the last. The prop is an actual laminate wood prop that was made for me from a company in England that I can't remember the name of and the turn buckles are from Gas Patch other than that it is OOB.

  1. Love it Lloyd, one of the best examples of a DV I have seen.

  2. WNW kits look good, no matter what...including this one. I haven't seen a "clunker" yet! I understand they are a joy to build with little or no issues whatsoever. Thing is...anything with more than one wing and lots of rigging elicits absolutely NO interest from ME. I suppose I should at least TRY one, though, given their spectacular design features and track record. Perhaps one day...

  3. Good work, Lloyd. You need a certain mindset to approach WW1 modelling, as it does in fact differ from other aircraft types and requires that extra bit of planning. One of my favourite sites is where you can see some extraordinary builds, including many scratchbuilt models, and includes a wealth of 'how-to' articles.

  4. Nice work on this, one of the most spectacular markings of any Albatros.

    One thing: when you're getting your pictures ready to publish, could you raise the brightness factor? it's a little hard to see your great detail. Or add a couple more lights when you're shooting. I have found that getting some of the 100-watt "daylight" compact fluorescent lights really improves things. Your stuff's too good not to see.

    • Thanks Tom
      Since I have know idea what you are suggesting I asked a friend to lighten the pics up for me, and I'll check on adding some more lighting for future pics

  5. One word - magnificent.


  6. 🙂 ... Greetings ... 🙂 :
    Very eye striking model Lloyd, that Albatros model looks very impressive with that blue and white mid section. Nice work.

  7. Lloyd, I really enjoy your work, this is another fine example. Very attractive markings and a very nice build.

  8. Great build Lloyd, those Wingnut kits looks the biz.
    I may buy one, one day.

  9. Lovely work - love the combination of the wood grain with the very colorful markings - you chose a great scheme to really make it an eye-popping model.
