WWI Campaign Honoring Wingnut Wings

Welcome to the Official WWI Campaign Honoring Wingnut Wings on the new KitMaker/Aeroscale forums! This campaign will run until August 1, 2021 and can include any model from World War I, not just aircraft and not just WNW. Post your campaign related discussion and pictures here. It’s been a great campaign so far!

Think I might have to join in on this one, I have a DFW CV mid production in the stash, just have to finish off a couple other builds first.

Here is the kit I will be building:


and here is some progress on the cockpit parts, just about ready to put it all together:

Thanks Michael! Got on a bit of a roll today and put together the cockpit and strung the control cables:

A bit more progress, engine together and mounted, also harnesses painted and installed.


As usual for a WnW kit, the fit is beautiful.

Amazing quick work!

I am still planning on completing my HMS Vendetta build for this campaign, it has just fallen by the wayside due to other commitments. My last post on the old site had her hull built and screw shafts installed. Since then I have only gotten as far as putting the hull red on :frowning:

Michael, it may not be a bad idea to post the campaign rules on this new thread so people know it isn’t only for Wingnut models and is for all things WW1.

Seems like a good idea. I’ll edit the opening post. That said, yes, this campaign is open to any model from World War I.

Hi all,

I’m jumping in with Eduard’s Fokker Dr. I.

So far just painting little stuff. It seems a good kit, but boy is small! The guys that flew in these were the stuff of legends.

The last time I posted an update to this campaign was on the old site so I will repost here. I am doing HMS Vendetta. A 'V; class destroyer which served in 1918.

My original post.

I have completed the hull to a painted stage and am now ready to start tackling the superstructure etc.
