This laser-cut, fine quality plywood, medium density fibreboard (MDF) and photo-etched brass kit builds into a highly detailed replica of a timber framed German aircraft hangar.
Clear acetate is also supplied for the glazing.
Supplied with a 4mm deep MDF base to aid it's construction (and also act as a diorama base) this amazing kit will be the perfect backdrop to your 1/32 masterpiece!
Front line German hangars were constructed from locally sourced timber, fresh saw-cut or "reclaimed", using traditional barn building techniques.
Brass door hinges and even two lamp shades are included to add to the realism..
Consider wiring some LED light bulbs for the ultimate scale realism!

I just wanted to say that the German Hangar is probably the best kit that I have ever had the pleasure of constructing.
“I thought that was a Christmas present” I hear you cry!
Still got plenty of figures and airfield accessories to add.....etc.etc.
Seriously though, really well done on producing such an accurate, well thought out kit. When I say that it has given me so much pleasure, I repeat that in over 50 years of prolific building it is simply awesome and indeed ranks as the most wonderful experience in modelling that I have ever completed.
I will send some pics over once I have cooked the Sunday roast."
...make's it all worthwhile..
Suggested extras to enhance your hangar build..
Check out their many other diorama accessories such as leaf-cutter stamps!..
Alternatively, I am offering a discounted two and a half sheet "Feldgrau" canvas effect decal set to simulate oil cloth coverings - see below..
The traditional barn-building technique of covering the gaps between planks with strips of timber can be easily represented with 1.5 - 2.0mm strips of balsa or basswood - available from your hobby shop or on-line.
Scale-accurate corrugated card and plastic card are available from HLT Miniatures
ATTKIT005 1/48 Gotha GV (ex Hippo/AZ) with Aviattic, Gaspatch and Lukgraph extras!
A year ago I was offered the last remaining sprues of this long-out-of-production kit and so felt obliged to give it the "Aviattic treatment" it deserved..
Neither Hippo nor AZ included ordnance or "night" camouflage decals with their productions and very limited markings options - which were not madly accurate - so this lovely kit has rarely been built..
Taking the work of the talented Rosario Bracchitta as a starting point (unfortunately the language barrier and different working practices meant a full collaboration was not possible), my son, Will and I painstakingly drew the random "night camo" patterns, using a few tantalising photos as reference and applied colours noted from crash reports of GV's downed over France and England.
These colours are my take on the five likely paint colours applied to some - but not all - aircraft.. Other combinations of four and five hand painted colours have been recorded and were studied by Harry and I years ago in the Imperial War Museum archives.
Many months of painstaking work from my decal designer Steve Cox and myself has resulted in a stunning set for this kit.
Four sheets of Aviattic decals are included with four markings options :
2) "Four balls"
4) "Constellation of Cassiopeia"
The kit's machine guns have been upgraded with beautiful Gaspatch versions of the slim-jacketed Parabellums - thanks, Costas!
Lukgraph kindly re-scaled their exquisite 50kg and 100kg 3d printed German bomb sets for me. You will just need to clean up the few tiny "build" contact points evident on some and scratch-build plastic or brass rod bomb racks, for which I suggest you download the WNW Gotha GIV instruction manual for inspiration and reference.
A dedicated P/E set was just a step too far for such a limited number of kits - even for me!..
A small amount of clean up is required to remove printing tree attachment points from the bomb set.
