I have to agree: the finish you acheived is super! :) each time i watch your model i find something new that strikes me. this time, even though the camo lets me speacheless, it is the cleaness of the underside that i find particularely well done!

Nigel... I sympathise and empathise with you and I'm sure many others here suffering the health issues that come with age are also sending you the very best wishes for a full recovery to good health. Like you I'm blighted with osteo arthritis, diabetes including diabetic nerve damage to my hands which severely impacts on modelling abilities and sundry other medical conditions from minor to serious.

I use glucosamine tablets for joint care which work pretty well. Those and a pharmacy load of pills and insulin etc keep the worst ravages at bay but having suffered chronic back pain and other back issues over the years I really feel for you.

Its a very sad reality for too many of us that our enthusiasm for our hobby is undermined by health issues which severely impact on our ability to enjoy it. Wishing you the very best for a speedy recovery.

OK, I'm pleased to finally be able to announce that this one is now available!

Building the Wingnut Wings AEG G.IV Late in 1/32 Scale

The price is $15 AUD (Australian dollars), and the product page contains some additional sample pages to try before you buy.

Cheers,

Kev

   Thanks for your kind comments Ian. It would appear that either copper or steel pipes could be accurate in this case, although I now am leaning more towards copper for this LeRhone installation. Having said that though I'm not going to repaint this one, like the darker "browner" shade of PC.10 I've mixed up for this subject I am confident no one can convince me it's incorrect! ;)
Cheers,
Lance

Looking great, Lance! I really like your weathering on the fuselage. Someday when my skills improve I will get adventurous and try it.

As for the Le Rhone question, I have seen 2 9J's in person, both at the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome in New York. One powered their Avro 504k replica for many years, and the other is mounted in a Fokker Dr. 1 replica that was in regular use up until the 1980s. I can attest that both have copper pipes, but the one in the Dr.1 saw a tremendous amount of use, and it's safe to say that everything under the cowling was the same color from all the castor oil buildup! So fear not, a well-used engine in a heavily weathered airframe will be very much stained one shade. Great work, I envy what you can do!

Glad to hear.  Was wondering if WNW was changing their downloadable PDF policy.  Happy to hear they haven't  8)

Wishing you all the best. I hope they can do something for you. Long term pain sucks. Unfortunately I understand what you're going through having degenerative disk disease  in my neck and lower back. Pills have made life easier kind of. Again wishing you a speedy recovery

I queried Richard about the Stahltaube’s downloadable instruction document. He has replied:

“32058 Jeannin Stahltaube PDF instructions should hopefully be uploaded later this week.”
