Despite rain, a new tricoleur "flew" briefly here in Spain today. 

What do you builders do about exposed pipes for inline engines?  Do you shape balsa, as you see I am doing, or are there alternatives?

Thanks,
JR

Hi JR,

For my unfinished Spad, I was going to use the wood than came in the kit.  Also, this is a 25 1/2" span model, so much larger than Peanut.

Hi, Avro.

I've been using reed (as for basket making).  Very flexible, available in "peanuty" sizes (e.g., 1/16", 3/32", 1/8", and even some metric sizes.  Flexible and light - and VERY flexible if soaked, bent around a form, and permitted to dry thoroughly.  And for once, a modeling product that's CHEAP - a pound (several lifetimes' supply) for 8-10 USD

As it is not at all likely that any means of suspending the effect of air-resistance can ever be devised, a flying-machine must always be slow and cumbersome. . . . But as a means of amusement, the idea of aerial travel has great promise.

I rounded square sticks and then glued small stubs from the piece to make the individual headers from the cylinders.  Sanding the ends with a round file at the "correct" angle to mate with the main pipe, plus a tiny bit of filler and paint completed the illusion on my Gourdou-Leseurre.

Thanks guys.  I have reduced the blanks in the photo to something close, and will keep an eye out for craft stores and reeds for future needs.

Hi Sparkle, you're talking to another aussie here (sort of), currently located in Spain.  Covering is presenting me with a few issues, so no end date in sight.  The plans leave a few things to the builder.  How did you fix the front legs of the u/c?

Regards,

Jeff

Big bits nailed together and now to await an opportunity to tidy and finish.  Funny how other things get in the way.
