Wingnut Wings 1/32 Sopwith 2F.1 ‘Ship’s Camel’

The boss asked for a trial of Drooling Bulldog’s new lacquer paint on this one. Normally I steer well clear of testing anything in a ‘live fire’ project, when completion times are at stake but on this occasion I’m glad I made the exception as (and I never thought I’d see the day I’d come to this conclusion) it’s better than Tamiya and Gunze; not just a little but by a country mile.

Glossy, silky, silky smooth, there’s literally no trace of ‘grain’. The astonishingly fine pigment is ruthlessly non-clumping and the Camel’s flanks, being flat, came up like mirrors. Adherence is another key performance marker and laid over my carefully degreased surfaces, it endured all the masking thrown at it. Happy days.

As for the Wingnut kit, it’s superb as you’d expect and great fun. Happy, happy days.

Until next time.
