|Here is one of the Shapeways W12 models. This one (and the W29) were designed by colinwe.|
The W 12 was painted a primer gray and then brush painted with Vallejo Sky Gray. The fun part was the three color naval camo pattern. No, I did not paint the camo patterrn. This is a decal produced by 1/144 Direct. This is an excellent product. Easy to cut, easy to work with, adheres well.

It takes a bit of time to cut the various pieces to fit, but it does pay off in the end.
Painting the W29 was esentially the same process, but with one fewer wing to worry about. The missing wing was more than made up for by the complex underwing struts.
|The W.29 finish is a mix of the 1/144 Direct 3 color naval camo and the Reviresco W29 decal side panel with cross and number.|
|In preparing the model two struts broke. They were replaced with brass rod.|
The FF49 was a 'large' biplane as cab seen in the below image where it is paired with a W12 (also not a small plane).
|The FF49 done up in three color naval lozenge camouflage. National markings are from 1/144 Direct.|
|Three color lozenge rules! From front to back its - FF49, W29, and a pair of W12. Bring on the Felixstowe!|
|The rest of the squadron, not as uniform in appearance. A pair of Brandenburg KDW with an AGO CII in front and a W12 making an appearance in the back.|
