Thomas Gunn 1/30 Fokker E.IV Kurt Student Wooden Aircraft model WOW047

WOW047 is an exquisitely finished resin model of the Fokker E.IV flown by the German ace Kurt Student, a 6 victory ace during WW1. Student was born in 1890 and hoped to become a doctor but his family could not afford the education so sent him to military school at age 11! Student graduated in 1911 and became a lieutenant in the army but in 1913 he requested a transfer to become a pilot. Initially posted to the Russian front, in 1916 Student was eventually transferred to the Western front and scored 6 aerial victories before the war ended.
Student became director of  Air Technical Training Schools during the interwar period and was instrumental in the creation of the Luftwaffe. He became very interested in parachute warfare and visited several Soviet paratrooper schools before setting up the Luftwaffe parachute school at Stendal in 1936.
Some would argue that the high point of Students career was the airborne assault on the Belgian fort at Eben Emael, where less than 100 paratroops captured a garrison of over 650 Belgian soldiers for minimal loss to themselves, he was awarded the Knights Cross for this action. Briefly imprisoned after the war, Student was released in 1948 and died peacefully in 1988 in Lemgo West Germany.
A free GW60 sentry figure is included.

Thomas Gunn 1/30 Sopwith Pup Anzac WOW026

Gunn's first 1/30 scale WW1 Allied fighter in Mahogany, the Sopwith Pup! The Pup was a light weight aircraft that was more than a match for the German fighters of the day, designed by the legendary Harry Hawker, and first flew in 1916. The Royal Navy were so impressed with the Pup they ordered it into service almost immediately.  Over 3000 were produced, also seeing service with the Royal Flying Corps before being replaced by the Sopwith Tri-plane and then the Camel. After being withdrawn from the front line in 1917 Pups were relegated to home defence and training Squadrons.
 
WOW 026 'Anzac' was flown by Australian FSLT CJ Moir in April 1917 whilst with 4 Sqn. Moir had latched up 2 kills in his Pup when he was unfortunately killed by anti-aircraft fire over Zeebruge, he was just 21 years of age.

Thomas Gunn 1/30 Fokker E.IV Turkish Wooden Aircraft Model WOW048

Thomas Gunn 1/30 Fokker E.IV Turkish WOW048
The second Thomas Gunn WOW048 Fokker Eindecker was an interesting and unusual subject in an attractive cream colour as in Turkish service, with the very distinctive black square nationality markings. The Fokker Eindecker was very much a feared opponent in the Middle East as the Allies were generally equipped with older aircraft in the region. With this wooden model we are supplying  a free GW063 Turkish sentry.

Thomas Gunn 1/30 Spad VII No.5 Version Wooden Aircraft Model WOW070

Thomas Gunn's Spad S.7 models the forerunner of the famous Spad 13 and was one of the most outstanding aircraft to emerge from the French aeroplane manufacturer, Societie pour L'aviation et ses Derives (Spad) during the Great War conflict. 

 The S.7 was a smaller version of the S.A 'Pulpit' fighter but had the observers forward seat and armament removed.  Based around the Hispano-Suiza V8 engine  which would eventually generate 180 HP with a top speed of 129 MPH, the Spad S.7 quickly became a favourite  of the pilots who flew it, due to its excellent diving characteristics and sturdy structure. It was however not as nimble as the Nieuports it had replaced but was considered less likely to shed a wing in a dive, obviously something to consider before switching back to a Nieuport!
Entering large scale service in 1917 with over 4000 being produced the Spad
S.7 entered service with French, British, Italian and Belgian Air Forces amongst others. It's one major drawback was its armament of only 1 Vickers machine gun when most new aircraft of the time were being armed with 2 machine guns.  
Our aircraft is one flown by Lt George Turnure of the 103rd Aero Squadron in a very attractive 5 tone camouflage scheme, Turnure was a recent graduate from Harvard prior to the outbreak of war and is credited with 2 possibly 3 aerial victories before being transferred as a flight commander to the 28th Aero Squadron. He was awarded the legion of Honour and Croix De Guerre with 3 palms and a star before the armistice ended his military career. Returning to New York, Turnure went to work in investment securities before dying prematurely at only age 24 years old, although the cause of death is not recorded.
