WNW AEG Special on way.
« on: March 05, 2015, 06:17:03 PM »
Hi Guys,

We are working up our fourth Wingnut Modelling Special for publication later this year. It describes an in-depth build of the early G.IV version and will include many close- up photos, new profiles, drawings and tech reports to aid those building this fine model. Even though we had a good head start our  model is far from finished but I thought you might enjoy a recent WIP image.

Be warned-this is no quick-build and you should be prepared for many hours of enjoyable and challenging modelling!

Cheers,

Ray R.

You're off to a brilliant start, Ray!  I'm glad you've chosen the early version with the hex scheme.  I'm looking forward to reading how you handled the stippling.
Cheers,
Bud

Hi James,

We are hoping for publication in a few months but the model is such that it is taking time to complete. I reckon it has so far taken me as much input as three D.VIIs so far. Mind you the efforts will be rewarded for it's a spectacular model
-right up there with the Felixstowe.

More anon...
Cheers,

Ray

Hi Guys,

Just  another WIP snap of the AEG feature model. Once the fuselage unit is finally :P done, it's merely a matter off hanging the wings-phew!

Cheers,

Ray R.

I will also be looking forward to reading the completed volume on this build special Ray.

I like what you have done with the cockpit propeller guards, as the kit parts looked a little too heavy .

Best wishes for the rest of the build, it really looks quite amazing.
