Hello,
So it happens that it`s the first WnW kit on my bench. I`m also going to build Bristol Fighter WnW with Aviattic decals simultaneously with this one.
What can I say - it's simply awesome!! Love every second of the time I spent building it so far.
The box picture is by Artro modelling (too lazy to take one on my own).

Hi Filip

Awesome! This looks all set to be another classic build for you.

I so want to tackle this kit myself, but I'm saving it for a treat once I get my book safely done and dusted - which, realistically, means next year. 'Till then, I'll just have to watch from the wings and enjoy and learn from your build.

All the best

Thank you so much for your kind words!
Everything is so huge in comparison to 1/32nd.
I bought some Mercedes engine goodies from TaurusModels - they`re stunning.

The perspective of painting and putting decals on all these corrugated surfaces is giving me shivers.
This is what I`ve managed to do so far. The Mercedes engine still requires some touch ups. The TaurusModels add-ons are simply superb!

The engine wiring looks fantastic. Can you tell us what you used and how you did it?

Many thanks for your kind words!
When it comes to wiring I`ve used a wire that I actually got from old Christmas lights.
My Junkers has been painted and slightly weathered (more to come). Making decals to lay down in the corrugations was a test of my patience... I have painted the two colour camo for the first time.

The model is almost done. I`ve fixed the engine and the exhaust. I`ve also carved the propeller. I`ve used the Proper Plane hubs and I must admit they are great products!
