No sooner had I finished the Wingnut Wings Roland , than the Hansa Brandenberg out of its box, same day actually, and it is big. There is something about the Hansa that set it apart from other aircraft, even from a distance there is no mistaking it . Several other manufactures have produced it in smaller scales versions , but a combination of modern moulding techniques and Wingnuts reputation will set this one apart from the rest.


The instruction booklet is an absolute dream for modellers, usually I discard them when I have finished a model. Not these as they contain a generous combination of both period and in this case modern photographs of a later version from a Finnish Museum.


I always start by giving the sprues a wash to get rid of any release agent present. Then when dry, air brush a base coat of Hannants XDBB Primer . A handy tip is to scan a copy of the paint guide before we start, as you will be constantly referring to it and this will save having to constantly search through the instructions to find it.

For the wood effect I decided to try something different, using Winsor & Newton water based Dark Umber on top of the usual Light Sand base. Using a flat stiff bristled brush to drag the paint , a realistic wood effect can be achieved.

Despite of the amount of parts that make up the interior everything fits together perfectly. The instrument panel after careful painting and precise positioning of its tiny decals really stands out and worth the effort put in.
