revisiting the great war

Joe Lumusio of Murrieta, Calif., created biplane magic via major improvements to this Academy 1/32 scale Nieuport 17. He scratchbuilt fuselage framing, cowl braces, rudder pedals, machine-gun supports and added spark plug wires. Plus that prancing horse from Count Francesco Baracca’s plane went on to be used by Ferrari as a way of honoring Baracca, Italy’s top ace in WWI.As the 100th anniversary of the armistice ending World War I grew closer over the past several years, we’ve seen more manufacturers turning out kits of WWI subjects, and more modelers building these unique vehicles.This special issue celebrates both the war’s end, and the genius behind those early war machines that still fascinates us.As a kid I was entralled with biplanes and the aces that flew them. That led to builds…

aircraft of wwi

The Great War may have been the first conflict to see this new technology, but that didn’t stop airplanes from becoming as varied and colorful as weapons far more ancient.Fascinated with the subject, Claudio sent us a portfolio of his WWI bi- and triplanes, which we were happy to publish. Here are a few with descriptions in Claudio’s own words.Dragon’s SPAD XIII (No. 5902) was decorated with decals from AeroMaster’s SPADs set (No. 48-075). to model an early SPAD XIII of Escadrille SPA.48 flown by Sgt. Jacques Roques, April-May, 1918. The four wingtips were extended with 1mm styrene sheet. I painted with Model Masters enamels. As with the Dr.1 (left), I weathered it with pastel chalks, watercolor washes, and a thin mix of black and red-brown airbrushed in light passes.Eduard’s…

tickling the rhino

From the first deployment of British Mark Is at the Battle of Flers–Courcelette in 1916, tanks revolutionized warfare, making firepower mobile and providing protection for the crew and accompanying troops. Dedicated anti-tank weapons were years away, but early tanks were vulnerable to artillery and infantry with grenades.The latter is depicted in Andrea Miniatures’ 1/32 scale Tank Fight diorama kit. Inspired by an illustration published during World War I entitled Tickling the Rhino, this multimedia kit includes a Mark I tank with steering trailer, ten figures, a scenic base, some stowage, and two rats.While the bulk of the tank is cast in large resin pieces, most of the parts are white-metal. A few photo-etched (PE) items and a small decal sheet round out the package.We split the work with Joe assembling and…

the end of the red baron

“Fight on and fly on to the last drop of blood and the last drop of fuel, to the last beat of the heart.” — Baron Manfred von RichthofenIn an era filled with larger-than-life figures and incredible stories reported by an emerging worldwide press and literary corps, the most famous legend of all may be Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen, commonly known as the “Red Baron.” With 80 aerial victories, he was the “ace of aces,” exalted and revered by his German countrymen, respected and feared by his Allied enemies.But even the greatest of heroes can run out of luck. For von Richthofen, the string began to fray in July 1917 when a grazing bullet fractured his skull. He never quite recovered, complaining of headaches, and some have speculated he…

master the art of rigging

“Don’t worry. It’s not as hard as everyone says. In my opinion, it’s actually easier than natural-metal finishes.”– Chuck Davis on rigging biplanesRigging is one of those modeling skills that many people are afraid to try. But, like many of the things modelers do, all it takes is seeing examples of the techniques used — and practice.There are many techniques to replicate rigging. Some are easily adaptable regardless of scale, while others only work well for small sizes or as a shortcut if you don’t need to show every detail.One of my favorite rigging methods is great for simulating early biplanes equipped with visible turnbuckles, a device used to adjust tension of rigging lines on full-size aircraft. Just as in real life, this method adds substantial strength to the finished…

coming home

Remains of the French village of Fleury-devant-Douaumont after months of all-out warfare.A husband and wife come home to the small French village of Fleury-devant-Douaumont on the hills northeast of Verdun. Between February 21 and December 15, 1916, it became the scene of some of the most violent fighting in the recorded history of warfare.During these months, the Battle of Verdun was a blood-bath. At least 700,000 soldiers were killed, wounded, or went missing and Fleury changed hands 16 times.I wanted to show the destruction wrought by this level of conflict, as well as the devastation left behind.Fleury-devant-Douaumont is one of dozens of villages spread across France that were not rebuilt after the war. It is known as a village detruits, or destroyed village. The foundation of the diorama started off…
