Mike Daniels Yes thats the down side of 1/32. They do take up a bit of space. Those pesky kids have got to go!! ( The wing span on the new Lanc is just short of one metre). Interesting move for WnW?

Peter Jenssen Thanks everyone. As some may have suspected, this was actually completed a while back. Sorry for the lack of pictures. I'm afraid I just neglected that part and went straight to opening the next kit box instead... :-/
6. May 2018 at 00:56:49
Gareth Windsor Can't believe I missed this. What a fantastic build, very well done.
14. September 2018 at 00:05:34
Peter Jenssen Thanks. It was a fun build. I recommend it! Surprising amount of rigging!
14. September 2018 at 01:08:22
Peter Hardy Peter, do you heave a sigh of relief or satisfaction when you finish a build like this? I think, if it were possible for me to build something like this, I would collapse in a pile of nervous relief. All credit to you Mate, Just brilliant!!!!!
14. September 2018 at 01:24:36
Gordon Sørensen Great looking Camel, Peter! Those Wingnut kits looks like they are well engineered.
14. September 2018 at 02:48:49
Peter Jenssen Thanks guys!
The Wingnut kits are indeed very well engineered.
I keep doing dryfits, not to adjust and make the fit better as with other kits, no, the fit is usually perfect.
I keep making sure that I'm not ruining the fit in any way as I'm going along.
Famously, the Wingnut fit is so exact that even a thin coat of paint on mating surfaces can cause alignment problems.
-Peter; It is very satisfying to put a completed Wingnut model on the shelf, but also, the whole building process of these kits is a great experience. They have definitely put in effort to make it that way. Well researched options, great detail, fantastic instructions filled with plenty of references.
I keep taking the instructions out of the kits in my stash just to read. :)
The rigging is of course the tricky part, the sigh of relief is every time I let go of the Ez-line, and the CA holds the load! :)
I have been meaning to try different kinds of CA, but have not gotten around to it. Suspect the thin variety I'm using is not ideal...
(Accelerator does not work well for me)
14. September 2018 at 23:56:28
Mike Daniels Absolutely agree Peter. The WnW instruction booklets are fab. A lot of very hard to find historical information that is difficult to find elsewhere.

I have been using 'Gorilla' CA. Works well for me. Had a little tube that must have so far done about ten models. It is not runny at all and gives you a few seconds to move things around rather than being an instant bond.
15. September 2018 at 00:47:01
Peter Jenssen I prefer it to cure fast. I'm using Zap thin CA. However, in drilled holes, it's a bit random how fast it cures. Sometimes it takes a minute or more, sometimes only seconds.
Trouble is, you can't tell until letting go of the line...
I had some issues with bonds cured with accelerator being weak, so I don't really trust it now.
Currently, I have resorted to working with a drop of glue on a piece of plastic that I have left out in the open for 15 minutes first.
Seems to be what works best for me so far...

Peter Jenssen The box was very full.
Surprisingly, There were two bonus kits in the box.
Two Tarangus 1:72 Tunnan kits!
Thanks Tarangus!

Peter Jenssen Turns out, the seats in the kit does not match the seats shown on the photoetch instruction.
Contacted Max from Maestro. Seems up until now, nobody noticed that the J32 photoetch instruction shows the seat from the A32 kit..
Oddly enough, the J32 has a back cushion in the seat, even though the J32 pilots were the ones wearing the parachutes on their backs.. (wouldn't it be a bit much with both a seat back cushion and a parachute)
15. March 2018 at 04:20:48
Peter Jenssen Two new deliveries. Going in the stash for now.
15. March 2018 at 11:14:58
Peter Jenssen I'm still doing various detailing. Mostly in the cockpit area.
Some new pictures added.
30. July 2018 at 01:02:14
Peter Jenssen Wings assembled. Perhaps this makes wheel well detailing easier..

Peter Jenssen Painted, adding rubber pads.
30. July 2018 at 00:50:29
Patrick Hagelstein I really like the color of those tracks!
30. July 2018 at 02:40:59
Peter Jenssen Thanks
It's Tamiya XF-83 with a light dusting of Alclad chrome and some dry brushing of Modelmaster stainless steel buffing metalizer.
2. August 2018 at 09:33:00
Patrick Hagelstein Looks exactly like the coating those tracks have when new.
2. August 2018 at 11:57:14
Peter Jenssen Great to know! Thanks :-D
(By the way, for anyone following, I have made some updates to my Lansen album, for some reason updates to this album does not seem to make it to the Newsfeed anymore, but can be reached through my profile)
3. August 2018 at 09:05:34
Bryn Crandell Tracks are looking good. Did you paint the rubber tracks while still on the sprue?
3. August 2018 at 14:50:56
Peter Jenssen Thanks Bryn,
The rubber pads are actually not painted.
Just the raw black plastic surface.
I'll try some weathering directly on plastic, see how that goes..
