FirstRead

 

Last year’s penultimate issue of Windsock Worldwide contained the usual wide variety of subject matter.

Inside we see the 14th instalment of “Great War Paint” which focuses on the Hannover CL.II. This distinctive German 2-seater is given a double page spread of colour schemes and as well as page of period photographs. Just the thing to whet the appetite of those contemplating the Wingnut Wings kit. 

Lance Krieg concludes his 1914 centenary “taube” project with a chat on the exterior details and the fine art of rigging. He describes his techniques with the aid of clear photographs and informative text.

For those building WNW’s third Albatros fighter release, the editor provides a few additional modelling aspects that many will find interesting.  Subjects discussed include the replication of fuselage tacks, the trademark OAW lifting handles, and some interesting diorama ideas.

The plans feature for this issue involves the Russian Duks (Nieuport) monoplane. It’s a tribute to Harry Woodman who helped the author research this unusual design. The new set of drawings are in 1:48 scale and come courtesy of Mick Davis.

Keeping to the Wingnut Wings theme, David Hardie offers his build notes for the “Hannoverana” and period photographs in the popular “Archiv” series feature a mix of DFW C.Vs from Fl.Abt.(A)243.

The customary “Readers’ Gallery” displays the aircraft of avid Windsock readers and the usual comprehensive roundup of reviews completes the publication with a look at the latest kits, books, decals, tools and periodicals.

 

 

Conclusion

If you have the slightest interest in aircraft from “the first “great conflict”, then this is the magazine for you.

Thanks to Albatros Productions for the review sample
