I personally think this is your best rigging to date. Not saying there was anything wrong with prior builds ,this  one just looks crisp! I am really looking forward to the completion of this one!

Thank you Rick, I agree with you, due to its complexity I put much more care in it, it is not yet complete, keep tuned!

Although "III" is the covergirl of the oop Windsock datafile 27 on the Halberstadt Cl. II, I'll go with the standard packings as there are more and more colorful marking options. On the other hand -- I only have one Re8 and preordered just two Halberstadt  :D

Hi Lance
For wood supplies try here: https://www.syrenshipmodelcompany.com/milled-lumber.php

Boxwood is an amazing timber - very tight grained and brilliant for carving - probably the very best there is. You could mix this in with Swiss Pear for contrast?

Cheers

Hello I started scraping and cleaning out the grooves for the internal structures...the warnings are all true, they wont fit if there is paint in the groove!

Its additionally stressful as the finish is so fragile, one jump of the scraper and well you know tragedy.

Anyway here is the shot, I should have a lot of time over the next few days to get a lot more done.

Ill pass
But all good .
I have a Tate already.
And the Halb will be available like the entire catalogue will always  be available to those who wait .
A hugely decent sales and customer service approach by WNW to keep their kits affordable , available and no profit for rip-off re-sellers.
I also anticipate the 0/400 will swallow (happily) my '19 model budget.

The next duellist will be the Gotha and a Biff nightfighter and will prove to be their best seller.
Both being OOP.
You saw it here first...
C'mon!!!!!!!!

a Pup would be a better bet for pairing with a Gotha. a Camel would be perfect, but they haven't run out of Camels. yet.

i'd like to see H.S. Kerby's Pup in this boxing. he bagged *two* G.IVs, so maybe it could then include markings for two Gothas. One Pup though.

You have it right as to the inevitable re-release of all of their kits and NO REASON to pay outrageous E Bay prices  ;D  As for the next Dueist, you are close. A Gotha and JTB McCuddens Pup  8) Didn't shoot any down but chased the Heck out of them!

WNW has made it pretty clear now that at some point, you will see a discontinued kit a second time.

I'm done buying anything I missed on Ebay at high prices.  Be patient and it will come back.

I just wish they would give us more decal options with these duelist boxings.

Luckily, the original RE-8 decal sheet is still available directly from WNW.

I think I will buy this release and the Re-8 Decal sheet, then sell the Halberstadt half of the kit.

The Re-8 is one of the kits I missed first time around!  I think it's the coolest of all the British 2 seaters they make, with the possible exception of the Fe.2b, but that's sort of its own animal.

I hope this is not it!  Would love to see a brand new kit of a brand new plane we have not seen announced some time in December.

Gregory,
thank you for the hint!
The 1/48 Roden kit is already in my stash, and I want to stick to 1/48, so the bigger one is not a option. But it will take some time, there are other projects in my mind (and some already started) to do before.
But now I will read Ricks report for sure, just found it. This was far before I joined here.

Cheers,
Frank

Thanks to Gregory for the overgenerous plug  8) As the 1/32nd kit is pretty much an enlarged version of the 1/48th pretty much all corrections or additions are appropriate.
