Welcome to The World War I Campaign Honoring Wingnut Wings! This campaign is all about remembering the Great War and honoring Wingnut Wings, as it becomes sadly more clear that they are no more. The campaign will run from 1 August, 2020 through 1 August, 2021.

If you want to see the rules and sign up, go here. Post campaign related discussion and in-progress photos in this thread. Pics of finished models should be posted in the campaign gallery.

Looking forward to models remembering the First World War and the company that revived our modeling interest in it!

Here's my entry:



Rigging looks challenging, and I don't like the plane. Bought it few years ago because it's WnW and then forgot it. Year or two later bought another, because it's good to have one in stash just in case.

Anyway, should be interesting build.

Looking good, Pasi! I was thinking of doing that one myself for various reasons, but I've always been partial to Sopwith products, and I have the Pup, Triplane, 3 Camels, Dolphin, and Snipe. So I might need to go that direction. A few other things to get off the bench first, so I have some time to think about it.

Meanwhile, we need a ribbon. Something simple?





Note the black background.

So, I'm thinking about the ribbon (guess that's what I do) and it's pretty hard to make out when it's small. So I made some adjustments. How's this?
