Sorry about first post ... I just recived this kit ... Anyone who loves planes and WW1 air craft should check out this company ... I was amazed at the options it has and the detailed instructions are second to none
Decals are great giving at least 6 build options
Check them out ... Highly recommended !

For what it's worth, Wingnut Wings is owned by movie producer/director Peter Jackson (Lord Of The Rings), who is a huge WWI aircraft fan. There were no models of that era that met his standards, so he just started his own company. I've seen a few of these kits up close and they are flawless.

Yep! If WWI fighter planes are your thing, they don't get any better than the kits on the Wingnut Wings site. Definitely worth checking out, there are none better at this scale (1/32).

Thanks for the heads up. I love historic aircraft ( mostly '30s to early post WWII, in 1/32 and 1/24) and I'd never heard of these before.


Wow. That striped Albatross has me hooked. guess I'll have to start doing WWI too.

Hmmm.. why not "Lord of the Wings" I wonder, or maybe "Wing Kong"?
