Building The Dolphin and Pfalz D.IIIA :
FOR  our seventh Wingnut Wings modelling Special, Ray Rimell, one of the World's most experienced WWI aeroplane modellers, turns his attention to the Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin and Pfalz D.IIIa. With  a compelling combination of  modelling know-how and unique archive material, the book  includes 100 exclusive colour close-ups, over a dozen all-new Ronny Bar  colour profiles and more than 205 model images in the extensive build logs for both kits.
Hyper-detailed step-by-step guides backed up by  over two dozen contemporary photos, drawings and a  unique photographic 'walk- around' of the RAF Museum's restored Dolphin, provide invaluable insight into cockpits; armament; interior details; powerplants, finishing and rigging. Ray takes the reader through  the entire building operation, from initial pre-painting to final addition of laminated wooden airscrews, with suggestions on painting ,decal application, addition of extra detail and improvements inside and out all supported by scores of carefully-chosen images at each and every stage.
Together with comprehensive bibliographies for both subjects, an extended Jargon-Buster, as well as listings of relevant accessories and decals, our latest
Special is laden with top-notch material including a superb wartime centre-spread Dolphin portrait, original Dolphin rigging notes and invaluable airframe close-ups of the RAFM 5F.1 during restoration at Cosford.
Although the 64 page  book is aimed at modellers of the 1:32 Wingnut Wings  kits, it has broader appeal for those working in other scales since a great deal of the content is pure documentation providing an unrivalled in-depth resource for anyone building either of these classic WWI biplane fighters.
