WingNut Wings Hansa Brandenburg W.12
This is my latest attempt at a WW1 subject. I've had a real fondness for WingNut Wings for a few years now and am gradually getting the hang of it.
It has taken a while but I'm finally happy with the end result.
As usual for WNW it goes together like a dream and everything is beautifully detailed with no faults whatsoever.
I added a Master Barrels Spandau although the kit ones are quite fine.
I've also used Aviattic Naval hex decals as there is nothing else comparable to them on the market. They are on transparent paper which allows for nice pre-shading effects, which just can't be replicated with the kit decals.
I wanted it to look like it's been sortieing out over the North Sea for a while so I've weathered and faded the paint work quite heavily in parts.
I'm onto a Fokker E1 next, I hope it goes together as well as this one!
