The Camel f-1 and the Fokker v.ii . The next one I want is one of the seaplanes not sure which one yet?

Nice! I just ordered the Felixstowe and Hansa-Brandenburg combo. Squadron was offering a 25% discount on anything from their catalog and I couldn't resist. It's rare to ever find Wingnut Wings kits at a discount.

I live about 30 minutes from Felixstowe and hadn't even looked at that one 🤔 Definitely will now

The Wingnut Wings Website https://shop.wingnutwings.com/ has massive discounts (many greater than the 25% you quote) for the whole of April while stocks last if you buy direct.

 

Some of the really expensive models such as the Felixstowe are now more reasonably priced.  I was tempted but I have 2 WNW in my stash and I want to keep to my strict annual budget and besides my stash is getting too big :)

jeeze.......I haven't browsed Squadron for quite a while now.   I've seen some of the wing nut models......some serious cake there......almost as bad as Eduards.  I don't recall ever building an albatross.......they were extensively used in all the Jastas.   guess I'm just a Fokker kind of guy  ;) 

 

following along diligently!

Oh no! Say it ain't so. I can't look...my budget is busted as it is for the rest of this month, and I won't spend any money on a credit card. For us in the USA, mid April is the filing deadline for our federal taxes and income tax return. Mine is due.

Glad you're aboard Denis. 

Squadron has a surprisingly small inventory in stock for a major distributor. As many know, Squadron is MMD, the well known hobby distributor in the USA. 

"Just-in-time" ordering is the new normal, so warehouses just don't keep inventory on hand like they did at one point in time. While I've never owned a large business who had to be concerned about things like these, it's my understanding businesses pay taxes on inventory in stock, so they try to avoid that as much as possible.

they may beef up during the rest of the year.......but when the tax man cometh,  they slim down  ;)

Credit cards are the bane of man's existence - I ripped mine up when I was about 19 (many years ago)  

 

I will not get into my view of tax :)

Thanks for those kind words, OC.

Great work Craig the wiring came out perfect.

 

I'm surprised you are't listing to something like "It's a Long Way to Tipperary" fro inspiration.

 

For me this works as well:

 

 

Looking forward to the coming days and seeing another masterpiece.

Thanks Lou. 

I like listening to a variety of music, but blues and rock are my favorites. 

I'm going to try some techniques when I paint this model I've never tried before. We'll just have to wait and see how it comes out cause I really don't know.

Please dont do it blidfolded  - I once did that with darts  - didn't go down to well, when I had to explain that down at the hospital.   LOL.

I'm going to be using inks and water colors (pencil water colors) to reproduce the plywood look of the Albatros airframe. I've seen master modelers do it and it looks quite convincing. Me?, who knows how it will come out but I'm going to give it a try anyway.

I'll first be laying down a primer coat of Tamiya flat white (I already did that tonight and let it dry), then the inks go on second with some fancy brush work, some stray water color pencil, then Tamiya clear yellow, then clear orange, then regular clear. Phew!

Looks like you even got the serial number tags on the motor, Craig.   Sweet.

I have seen this done as well  - look forward to see how it works out for you. I was thinking of trying out the wood grain stencils. Also there are decal options from Uschi and SWS

 

Really like the dry brush effect . I tried this for the first time yesterday on a Spitfire I am doing and it seemed a bit over done - however this looks perfect.

Craig, the motor looks real. Well done.

 

I hadn't looked at these aircraft. My last squadron flew SPAD VIIs and XIIIs at the tail end of WWI. (yeah, they're that old).  And their 2 kills were Fokker DVIIs. Looks like Wingnut doesn't make SPADs, but they do do the Fokker. Hmmm....
