Wingnut Wings 1/32 scale Gotha IV

With a 30" wingspan, Wingnut Wings’ Gotha is a big model — and it doesn’t skimp on the details.

Wingnut Wings continues to impress with its 1/32 scale offerings. In this case, it is the astounding addition of a Gotha G.IV — impressive in smaller scales, and positively door-jamb challenging in 1/32 scale. In typical Wingnut style, a luxurious instruction booklet doubles as a reference while detailing construction of the 400-plus parts in the kit. A sheet of photoetched-metal details includes jackets for the three machine guns, seat belts for the crew, a front gun ring, screens for the rear gunner, and other fine details. Two huge decal sheets present five options and include many stencils. A nice feature is the option to use bulged tires for a load-bearing look — handy, since my Gotha was going to be fully bombed up.
