Hi Rich,
Yes this is one of the few models I've built where the upper wing fits so positively.
The square ends to the struts and their reinforcing steel rods makes for a firm, almost 'click' fit into their wing recesses,

The mudguards are now on and the body is taking shape.

I am very impressed with how easy this is coming together. Fit is perfect so far, even for an amateur like me. I have stared doing the ICM 1/35 version alongside and it is an equally impressive model.

Good Day,

Got the puppy on the workbench. All what I want to do is to relax and enjoy highest quality kit provided by the company still being the last hope for many modelers around the world. Maybe someday we will see WNW offer again..
Ps. the rriging is not completed yet. It need enhancement and heated pulling:)

Getting there  :)
Managed to get the upper wing attached to Hecht's D.III today.  The struts are very flimsy by themselves but when assembled the whole lot is really solid.  I also had a crack at the wooden prop and added the dataplates and rigging diagram panels to the sides of the fuselage for some extra detail.  Next up will be assembling Buddecke's D.IIIa and then onto the engine and upperwing parts.

Couldn't resist another 1917 coin for scale.  This one is 2 francs.  About the size of a modern 10c piece.

Tony ,

Your efforts paid off very nicely with a well build model . I like it a lot  :) Did you hand paint these ?


Definitely not hand painted, all airbrushed

Cheers, Tony

 Hi 6992

Welcome to the Forum. I wondered what the number referred to when I saw your membership application.

You are very bold in tackling a Wingnuts Fe2b as your return to modelling project. These are amazing kits and look fantastic though the complexity of the rigging scares me.

Feel free to ask any questions on the forum as our members are always happy to help out a fellow modeller. Incidentally former Wingnut Wings staff are among our membership so we have the experts nearby for WnW related questions.

That is absolutely beautiful - you are so fortunate to call that yours! What a nice distraction indeed!

Thanks. I always wanted a completely original, unrestored pre-war car and I was very pleased to find this
