WingNut Wings RE.8 "Harry Tate"

January 4, 2020 · in Aviation · · 15 · 2.9K

this is my 1:32 scale RE.8 from the Duellist boxing. Mostly OOB with a few added details, ignition wires out of lead wire and some vent pipes for the fuel tank and of course the bracing wires and control wires out of monofilament.
i used the kit decals for a RE.8 D4689 "P", 3 Sqn. AFC, 9 June 1918. Paints are custom mixed Mr. Color Lacquers. A nice kit, well detailed, but frail.

    These biplanes are beautiful but have great difficulty.



  8. What a magnificent plane ! The details they incorporate into each of the WNW kits is amazing, and you have really made this one shine ! The photos showing the interior are stunning... as is the rest of the plane. What did you use for the turn buckles ? They really look nice whatever it was...

    Well done my friend.
