NEW!!! 7.BUILDING THE DOLPHIN AND PFALZ D.IIIA



FOR  our seventh Wingnut Wings modelling Special, Ray Rimell, one of the World's most experienced WWI aeroplane modellers, turns his attention to the Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin and Pfalz D.IIIa. With  a compelling combination of  modelling know-how and unique archive material, the book  includes 100 exclusive colour close-ups, over a dozen all-new Ronny Bar  colour profiles and more than 205 model images in the extensive build logs for both kits.
Hyper-detailed step-by-step guides backed up by  over two dozen contemporary photos, drawings and a  unique photographic 'walk- around' of the RAF Museum's restored Dolphin, provide invaluable insight into cockpits; armament; interior details; powerplants, finishing and rigging. Ray takes the reader through  the entire building operation, from initial pre-painting to final addition of laminated wooden airscrews, with suggestions on painting ,decal application, addition of extra detail and improvements inside and out all supported by scores of carefully-chosen images at each and every stage.
Together with comprehensive bibliographies for both subjects, an extended Jargon-Buster, as well as listings of relevant accessories and decals, our latest Special is laden with top-notch material including a superb wartime centre-spread Dolphin portrait, original Dolphin rigging notes and invaluable airframe close-ups of the RAFM 5F.1 during restoration at Cosford.
Although the 64 page  book is aimed at modellers of the 1:32 Wingnut Wings  kits, it has broader appeal for those working in other scales since a great deal of the content is pure documentation providing an unrivalled in-depth resource for anyone building either of these classic WWI biplane fighters.
Published in  November 2018, cover  price of the new Special  is £26.00- discounted to £25.00 until 28 January 2019...
