here is my latest. built from plans downloaded here.
it's 20 degrees and winter time right now so might have to wait to see how it flies!

it has a superior wood prop from volare on the front. the wings are one piece and held on by a couple rubber bands underneath. added some extra structure to the horizontal stab. i dont know how you would keep that together if built by the plans.

The name is shown on the model. It is an" Erie Daily Times". The wingspan is somewhere close to 24 inches if I remember correctly.

A KK Fokker D8.
I stuck the paper crosses on with Spraymount and they are peeling already. When they fall off, I'll put them back on in the right place
(thanks Russ for printing help)
PS doesn't it go nicely with a VMC Camel and SE (hint). But no more so than would a Nieuport 17.

What a lovely dogfight collection!
And yes, a VMC Nieuport would be a great addition (HINT 2), especially as the instruction booklet which came with my newly arrived VMC Camel actually shows a Nieuport on the last page where it tells you to collect and build the whole range! A Bebe would be my first choice but I'll settle for a 17. (If you do it, Andrew, I promise to shut up about Dan's mad Geebee idea! Grin)

Nice Luton Minor Bill.  Did you build from the kit?

No, Mark. I don´t know when the kits disappeared - maybe the early 80s. But I had one at the time and they were nice kits

Chris, not yet. I hope to give it a go at the next indoor meeting. I´ve used a flat wing so I also hope I haven´t been too clever!

I have the plan and asked Andrew a while ago what he thought about a flat wing (inspired by my Triplane you see) and he said why not! Likewise the Comper Swift.

Goodness Bill you have been knocking them out.

John, I had something on the rudder, but it looked odd Tongue
The scheme doesnt look balanced, it was the best I could do. I wouldnt be a good illustrator Roll Eyes

I wanted to try something new with the hibiscus. I was quite disappointed, I wont do it again... It looks ok from distance, but if you look close Roll Eyes Anyway, you have to try new things from time to time...

Hmm, you might be right... a fearsome dragon would balance the peaceful hibiscus.

Roman, that is a pretty little thing what is it? I am enamored with it. I want to build one. It speaks gorgeous simplicity. That hibiscus goes well with it.
