About this Product

A detail omitted from most 1:32 scale kits of WWI German airplanes, including WNW's Albatros D.V/D.Va and Fokker D.VIIIs. This valve was the heart of a complex fuel delivery system, which allowed the pilot to select fuel source (main or reserve) as well as the source of air pressure to pressurize the system (engine-driven air pump or manual "bicycle pump") among other functions. The valve complex was typically located behind a wooden panel in the cockpit, and operated directly via levers.

 

This part has been specifically designed to fit the WNW Albatros D.V and D.Va kits in 1:32 scale. It may also be appropriate for other kits depicting inline-engine powered German aircraft, such as the Fok D.VII (Alb). There are small starting holes for the various fuel lines that sprout from this valve; we suggest you model these with copper wire.

Sprue consists of six individual valves.

To prepare the parts for painting, scrub them with a toothbrush in ordinary dish washing liquid and rinse thoroughly, or soak them for up to 10 minutes in a small jar filled with acetone (nail polish remover.) Once the waxy support material is completely removed, the parts will appear white wherever support material was needed during printing. We recommend carefully sanding these white areas with a sharpened fine grade sanding stick (or similar) to remove the texture caused by the support material. With care this can be done without spoiling the details.
