The first and the last

Well, not quite but certainly examples of aviation technology at each end of WW1…

I mentioned in Definitely not part of the master plan… that the friend who supplied me the big Felixstowe might have access to some other of the remaining Wingnut stock at civilised prices…

Well, he did…and a package arrived a couple of nights ago…

The DH.2 represents the pusher prop, stick and tissue technology of the early air war. It was fragile in appearnce but effective for its time. The kit is the typical exquisite Wingnut presentation with the addition of a resin figure of the Lanoe Hawker to pose with the finished kit.

The Junkers D.1 entered service in the last weeks of the war, with only four possibly getting any operational flying in. Some did, however, see action, in some of the minor misunderstandings in the immediate aftermatch of the Great War.

The model comes with a range of optional colour scheemes and so will inform the Warbirds 1/72 vacform D.1 that I scored off Trademe last year…

This is another little gem and I wish I had scored the other one I saw on Trademe this year. It is pretty much buildable OOB only needing some detail around the machineguns and a representation of the skin corrugations on the inside of the cockpit…

Apart from some minor acquisitions coming in from overseas, hopefully this is the end of the 2021 acquisitions cycle…
