Truly superb work, as always, Mike.  The undercarriage bracing is elegant!
Cheers,

Good call Dave. These rumours are likely to be false, along with the 100's of others that are out there...

Goa a couple of 1/48 Eduard Nieuports in the queue that have 2 or 3 colored propeller hubs.  Any suggestions on painting these?

Hi all,
Just a few updates.
The undercarriage assembly is fitted and the bracing wires final rigged.
That includes the bracing wire from the forward undercarriage struts to the leading edge of the lower wings.
Also the cross bracing wires under the fuselage to the rear of the engine cowl.
The fin bracing wire has been add and the rudder control lines fitted.
Finally the pilot figure ('Kellerkind Miniatures' US pilot) has been assembled, ready for painting,

Mike

I have deleted the thread regarding the rumour about Wingnut Wings moulds being sold. The original poster amended his post and the whole thread seemed to be chasing around after itself.

For the record, I reached out to Wingnut Group and Sir Peter Jackson just the other day to ask what/ if any decisions had been made about the future of the business, the plans ( if any) for the tooling and the intentions for re opening the NZ warehouse which has, I believe, the last goodly sized stock of WNW kits worldwide.

The answer- as always from Wingnuts and Sir Peter - was total silence. Sources connected to the group think the NZ warehouse may reopen to sales when international postal services are more reliable after the pandemic disruptions to air travel. This has not been officially confirmed.

If we get verifiable confirmation of moves to dispose of Wingnut assets and stock, then it will be published on the Forum and open for discussion.

However until then, vague rumours that someone heard from a model shop bloke who spoke to someone else about the moulds being sold to whoever can stay with the good folk on social media pages who thrive on this stuff.

More important right now is the need for us to focus on those model manufacturers who are still in business and producing new WW1 kits for us. They are the future now, so let's support Roden, Copper State Models, Lukgraph, Meng, Special Hobby, Eduard, KP etc and all of the aftermarket suppliers around the world whose creations continue to enhance our modeling.

Great build and rigging. You say you're gonna paint the riggingwires. Does the paint stick well to the monoline? Can't you use a sharpie?

Thanks for the comments. I have used Sharpies in the past before attaching. I looked at some of the builds Des posted and realized I liked his "Steel" painted wires. So I have been painting them using Valejo steel thinned considerably. Works just fine!

Seems to have worked Just Fine! Your SPAD looks awesome! We really need an injection kit of the XI or 16  ;D
RAGIII

Thanks guys.  I really appreciate the kind words.

I went through the vacuform kit stash thinking I had a Spad 16.  Nope.  I thought for sure Roseplane did it.  I checked scalemates and nothing turns up there.  Not a single kit at all.
