Excellent work, David. These machines from the First World War have their great charm.

Does WNW still exist!? The web page is still up...
This WnW kit sold out may years ago...you might get lucky on eBay!

@mentaldental - with the J-1 kit, be advised the ailerons don't fit the wing. The easy way out of that (which no one will notice since no one knows much about the airplane) is to take the cut out of the "elephant's ear" so the inner end of the aileron "fits" to the wing. (I learned this one the hard way) This is WNW's first kit, and they were lower on the learning curve than they were later.
The Sachsenberg airplane is really nice. His nephew, Heinz Sachsenberg followed his uncle's footsteps as a fighter pilot (104 victories on the Eastern Front") and the commander of the Galland Circus "Parrot Flight."
I built the missing bit from plastic card and used Magic Sculp to give the corrugations. The extra length to the hing protection frill was extended the same way as I've seen that should reach across as well 😉

The perfect example why I should not spend my money on a WnW kit (yeah, I know, now it is too late anyway). I leave to the experts to build these! Looks really nice, I wish I could make such nice looking biplanes.
