Hansa-Brandenburg W29
2-seat monoplane fighter designed by Heinkel. Because of its lack of range, a unique tactic was devised for this floatplane. When weather permitted, W29s would sit on the waters of the north sea whilst aircraft with longer range scouted ahead and then returned for or called up the heavier armed W29s.

78 W29s were constructed, 40 carried one forward firing spandau and one manually operated parabellum in the rear cockpit, the remainder carried an additional forward firing spandau (as in our model).


Sopwith Baby
These served mainly in the channel, north sea and mediterranean during 1917-18. Often carried aboard seaplane carriers, they were used for anti-submarine patrol and reconnaisance. These small single floatplans were armed with one machine gun and 130lb of bombs.

Price of kit: £9.00
