FOKKER E.III LATE/EARLY REPLACEMENT ENGINE COWL FOR WnW KIT

FROM - RON KOOTJE

FIRST LOOK REVIEW BY DES DELATORRE

Ron Kootje has made available these resin replacement engine cowls to suit the Wingnut Wings 1:32 scale Fokker E.III kit, the new engine cowls are ideal for those who want to replace the kit supplied engine with the brilliant Taurus engine. The Taurus engine will not fit the kit supplied cowling unless a lot of sanding is done to the inside of the cowl.





The casting of this cowl is superb, the result is a very clean crisp casting with no flash or bubbles. The thickness of the cowl is only 0.4mm which looks close to scale, it is nearly transparent. The outside of the cowl is very smooth with no blemishes at all, Ron has achieved an excellent result. Detail on the top of the cowl and also around the rear outer edge is very well defined.





The inside of the cowl is nearly as clean and smooth as the outside, very little sanding will be needed to have a perfect finish ready for painting.



POSITIVES

A beautifuuly made product that will enhance the WnW E.III kit especially if using the Taurus engine.

CONCLUSION

A must have replacement engine cowl for your Wingnut Wings Fokker E.III. This resin cowl is perfect when using the Taurus rotary engine and the thickness of this cowl brings it very close to scale size. This is a limited run accessory so it would be advisable to get in early to secure your order.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
