Title: Show us your - Bristol F.2b
Post by: Des on August 18, 2012, 05:00:28 PM
This is my WnW 1:32 scale Bristol F.2b, in my opinion it is the best kit Wingnuts has produced, the engine is a model in it's own right.

Spectacular Des! After seeing this, I think mine will remain resting in the box for the foreseeable future.  ;D

Truly stunning, Des.  When you first put this one up on the 'drome, I think that might have been one of the first WNW kits I had seen built.  I was completely blown away.  I still am.  Brilliant work, mate.
Cheers,
Bud

I totally agree with Bud here - superb workmanship, Des.

I would love to have a go at one of these, but I would not be able to do the kit the justice it deserves unfortunately!!

Best regards

Dave

Post by: Des on August 19, 2012, 08:46:07 AM
Don't be put off by this model Dave, when I say it is the best kit Wingnuts have produced, it is also one of the easiest to build, everything just falls together so easily, it is model engineering at it's best. The only issue some modelers may have is the control rigging, these are double wires so could cause a few problems to the less experienced riggers, it also has double flying wires, but apart from that it is a superb kit.

Przemol & Des,
    Both magnificent examples of the Scale Modelling Art; the detail in 1:72 is unbelievable and as for Des' 1:32 work, I am going to send an order to WNW shortly; so much to do, so little time!
   Thanks for posting these, Guys. They are really beauties to behold.

Hi Des,

great work on your Brisfit. To show the engine as a unit is a really nice idea. Here is my 1/32 scale Brisfit. I left the cowlings removable.

Post by: Modelnut on January 15, 2014, 05:00:01 AM
It took a long time and I had to back up and re-do things sometimes. The mounts for the lower wing were the worst. A very detailed kit, all details were in scale(read tiny). I LOVE the paint scheme,especially after seeing it here. 
 
But for $6 USD from Squadron I jumped in. The final result was okay. It is fragile though. I held my breath taking it out of the cabinet to photograph.

Thanks!

Post by: Nigel Jackson on January 15, 2014, 06:23:17 AM
A lovely piece of work Stan. I know just what you mean about the terrors of taking a Brisfit out of the cabinet. It could well be the sturdiest of builds but I remain a bundle of nerves until it's safely back inside.

Best wishes
Nigel

Wonderful workmanship on all the Brisfits.  Without taking away from the 1/32 examples, which are
phenomenal,  Prze and Stan, yours in the teeny scale must have been really challenging...
Superb job, both of you!

Here is my effort with the 1;48 Eduard Bristol fighter - any deffects are due to the modeller and not due to the kit itself - it was a blast to build this one! I'm thinkng of getting the WnW at some point in the future as I really, really like this aircraft!

I'm a little slow to reply to this topic but;

Prze - Your Bristol is magnificent, hard to believe it is 1:72 scale.

Dirk - A beautiful model, to cover up such a wonderful engine would be a shame, your engine looks great.

Stan - Another brilliant piece of modeling in 1:72 scale, I love the white scheme.

Ssashoo - Incredible job, and in 1:48 scale, truely amazing.

Des.

SsashoO,
   Very striking finish and the weathering is exceptional. You've done the old girl proud, congratulations on some really great modelling!
Stan,
   1:72 Scale?!? Beautifully done and a great colour scheme. I vaguely recall my "Braille Scale' days, but I wasn't producing this quality of work for certain!

Lance

Sasho, I could swear I've seen this one before.  I could never forget a beauty like this.  Did you finish her a few years ago on the 'drome?  Your shading, decal application and weathering are brilliant.  Although I've already got 7 various Biff kits (including the Brisfish) in my stash, you've tempted me to seek out this one, as well.

Lance, I remember when you finished this one and I fell in love with her as soon as I laid eyes on her.  She's absolutely stunning.  Your exhaust stacks are phenomenal, the engine is a work of art in itself, and your finish is beautiful.  I think this is your best to date.
Cheers,
Bud

Great topic,  I have not yet completed a Bristol F2B but after seeing this thread I pulled out of the box a Roden 1/48 kit that I had started around 5 or 6 years ago, this has given me the motivation to start it again I think...
So far mainly out of the box with addition of Eduard seat belts and gauges, and not sure where the photoetched Scarrif mount came from.  Engine is the kit engine right out of the box with the only addition being the spark plug wires.

So I add my latest finished model Bristol Fighter "Crocodile".

It is the Eduard kit in 1/48, this marking was a Limited Edition kit.

You will find a long and detailed build report here: https://forum.ww1aircraftmodels.com/index.php?topic=9378.0
