This is my Wingnut Wings Hansa Brandenburg W.29, the third WNW model I've completed and up to Wingnut's deserved word leader status in WW1 models.

The model is brush painted using Citadel Paints "Foundation" range. Everything else is kit-supplied. The Cartograf lozenge decals went on like a dream.

A very enjoyable build, but a surprisingly BIG model. Minimal rigging and it being a monoplane make the W.29 a good candidate for anyone wanting to tackle WW1 without the wings and rigging issues.

Great job on this, really looks nice. What's the wingspan on it?

The specs for the real aircraft state a wingspan of 44ft 4 inches ( 13.5 metres). The model's wingspan is around 16.5 inches.

I'm a week away from finishing mine. Same livery. Ain't she a beaut? Your's came out great. Why not post it on Plastic Pix? Some may not see it on the 1/72 scale group build.

Regards,

Andy
