SOPWITH PUP RNAS

The second Wingnut Pup is the Naval version with extra parts and further decal options. It has great conversion potential and scope for some interesting dioramic displays. The model was featured in WS 26/1 along with the Albatros pair and the RFC Pup. I built it virtually stock apart from the Brock Shield fitted to the Lewis  gun and modifying the serial.

SOPWITH PUP-RFC

 

The  Sopwith Pup was without doubt one of the most delightful aeroplanes ever designed-a hugely popular subect for flying scale enthusiasts down the years-my father and I built at least two of them;one in 1:6 scale, the other twice this size. Wingnut’s kit is one of their best and was fully reviewed in WS 26/1 along with the RNAS version. It is finished in one of the kit options ; A6156 flown by Lt. Oliver Stewart of No.54 Squadron,RFC. It has been rigged with Radu Brinzan’s PE Rafwires to good effect

RAF SE5A

 

 

 

Wingnut’s RAF SE5a is a peach of a kit and easy to build as shown in WS 25/2…I rigged mine with Wonder Wire as Radu’s RAFwire sets were not around then;when WNW get round to their dedicated PE wire sets I will re-rig the model.The figure and the little dog are pre-production resin figures; just two from a vast range planned by the New Zealand manufacturers. I deliberately used two shades of PC10 to simulate the tonal differences between the dope and varnish versions of this controversial  colour.

BRISTOL F2B FIGHTER

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not the easiest of the first four  WNW releases to build ,but a magnificent model will result right out of the box-as here.The prototype resin crew figures add panache to this superb kit of a real British WW1 classic and it looks great finished as a night fighter with all the bells and whistles!

PFALZ D.III

I have made no secret of the fact that the Pfalz is my all -time favourite WW1 aircraft,and  happily the WNW kit is one of their very best releases to date. I really enjoyed this build and Misterkit’s ‘Silbergrau’ is  excellent so long as you build up several coats  to achieve the proper, solid colour. I made a number of mods and additions to the kit,and these were described fully in WS26/6 which is still available from our webstore in very limited numbers…
