The Hansa-Brandenburg W.29 was a German monoplane fighter floatplane which served in the closing months of World War I, from bases on the North Sea coast. It was based on the W.12 biplane that it was designed to replace. It had a 195 hp Benz engine with exhaust stubs discharging above and to left of the exposed cylinder heads; its front-mounted radiator and louvers in the metal side panels which enclosed the bulk of the engine providing cooling; and its thick, broad wings, made of wood and fabric and rigged with several degrees of dihedral, made it a strong, stable fighting platform. The struts between the floats and lower wings provided more-than-adequate strength. The depth of its fuselage made up for the lack of a vertical stabilizer, and the inverted position of the rudder gave the observer a wide field to fire his ring mount Parabellum machine gun. Armament consisted of a synchronized Spandau gun on each side of the pilot's cockpit, and the observer shared his cockpit-space with a Parabellum gun on a ring mounting.

Hansa-Brandenburg W.29

Designed by Ernst Heinkel as a two-seat fighter floatplane, the W.29 was first flown on March 27th, 1918.

Wings of The Great War

The Wings of The Great War range presents affordable, ready-made resin models of WWI aircraft. Each model is crafted and painted by hand and features a unique pivoting stand that allows the model to be displayed at a variety of different attitudes.

Wings of The Great War display airplanes feature:

  • Molded resin construction with no assembly required.
  • Fixed, non-rotating propellers and wheels.
  • Poseable presention stand to display the aircraft "in flight".

Why Resin?
It's very expensive to produce die-casting molds, and manufacturers must sell a large number of models from each mold in order to recoup development costs. Some subjects are so obscure that it's difficult to sell large quantities of them. Resin-casting is a much simpler and less expensive process, and manufacturers can use it to make limited runs of models that can't be cost effectively manufactured in diecast metal. With resin-cast models, collectors can add fascinating and unusual subjects to their collections without the time and difficulty of assembling and painting a model kit.
