Is anybody interested in a VMC Kit cookup?
I did not yet buy a VMC kit, but I would like to and if I can build the plane in a cookup, it would be even more fun.
There should be a nice subject for everybody. Therefore I hope to find many participants for this cookup.
If you have never tried a cookup, this would be a good moment to do so Wink

Here are the rules:
- At least 5 participants to officially start this cookup.
- Start Date is 1.1.2017        (so there is plenty of time to order a kit...)
- End Date is 31.12.2017      (sure some of you will be ignoring the deadline Grin)
- All kits from VMC are eligible to enter the cookup     https://www.vintagemodelcompany.com/


What do you think, did I miss something?

Hi Roman. I'm in!
I've got the SE5a ready to roll and I find cookups always keep me going and, as you say, make it more fun!

(PS bit cloudy here today- sort us out some sunshine please!)

Pete, good to hear that you are in Cheesy
The Se5a looks nice. I havent decided yet what kit I would choose if we bring together 5 participants.... But since I have a Se5a, it will be most likely something else Smiley

Lets wait and see who else will jump on the train.

About the weather... I am working on it....  No sunshine today Sad

I think that makes the five, Roman!

(You could still do with a few more though because, as it stands, the whole thing rests on Dan being a good boy.)

Actually I might be trying to get on Santa's good list too, as I intend to put the Camel on my Christmas list as well. If the cookup runs for a year I should be able to manage one as well as the SE5a.

And the Geebee Z of course, although Andrew's gone a bit quiet on that one. I expect it's in hand though.

I wondered why the opening post did not mention the five or six models that were available. Then I looked for a VMC website and found they had 86 models listed. Can I assume that most of them do not have the magic touch of Andrew Darby?  Anyway I did look through the whole lot and one brought a piece of poetry to mind; does anyone remember this:
 " Lots of struts in all directions, Curved and cut out centre sections, Stringbag the sailor's had his day, but in his own distinguished way, he's left his mark on history's page, he champion of the biplane age." 
That is typical I suppose, I'm not much of a craftsman, I don't build scale models, I don't buy kits so I pick the most unsuitable model. I'll see what my birthday brings in May.

I thought about writing it in the first post. But I was not sure myself...
I would propose the whole Magnificent Flying Machine line and also some of the Veron Tru-flite and the Keil Kraft line as long as they have the Vintage Model co logo on the picture. Like this one https://www.vintagemodelcompany.com/fokker-dviii.html
Would it be acceptable for you?

I dont know when they add a Vintage Model co logo, maybe Andrew can help with some information on this.


Jack Plane, I tried to read between the lines in your post. But since it is only one word, I was not able to get the message Grin Good to have you in.

Pete, yep it looks good. All our hopes are on Don. Thats quite some pressure on him...

Dan, lets cross our fingers...

Aeromedelista, at least we have you as Cheerleader with us. Some of us will need some encouragement or kicking as soon as the deadline is coming closer Grin

Mefot, great one (or two) I have no idea if I can count you as two participants when you build two planes Roll Eyes

Jon, lets hope that your birthday brings you the right present.

Hi guys,

The Magnificent Flying Machines range are my designs from scratch.  The others with the photos and logo are ones from Veron and KK etc that the chaps at VMC or I built and then took pictures of.  This is because when they took over what was Replikit they had very little in the way of images for their website and promo material.

Thanks for starting this Roman, I will watch with interest  Grin

Adrew thanks for clarification Smiley
Any news about models in the pipline?
Lets hope that we have many participants with lots of different models.

Ok, so shall we make it a Magnificent Flying Machines cookup?
Everybody interested until now has a subject from within the Magnificent Flying Machines range.
At the moment 11 models are to choose from. https://www.vintagemodelcompany.com/magnificent-flying-machines.html
And as we know Andrews pace on bringing out new kits, some five to ten new models will be available until the end of the cookup Grin Wink

Now I have to choose a subject myself... If you agree to the new cookup range, the Harvard isn't anymore eligible. I most likely will go for the Tiger Moth.


Best Regards Roman


List with participants and models at the moment:

Pete            Se5a
Mefot          Spitfire / Me109
Jack Plane   Jodel D-18
Dan            Sopwith Camel
Roman        Tiger Moth

He's got a Fairey 'Stringbag' Swordfish to design first!  Grin

Here from David Wragg's book:

...an American naval officer stared at a Swordfish for the first time.
'Where did that come from?' he asked.
'Fairey's', came the reply from a British naval officer standing nearby.
He stroked his chin thoughtfully. 'That figures', he replied.

Erm, could be a while for the Geebee! - the Harvard stands more of a chance, but in all honesty I really don't know what I will do next...

I would have thought that the Corsair will be available in the early part of the year though, I'm bumping the thread on that one as I'm trying to get some more info on the markings...

Cheers all

Hi Roman.

Sounds like this might be fun.  I did hint at the SE5A as a Christmas present, but my wife pointed to the small pile of boxes on the shelf and shook her head.  I fancy a high wing monoplane so put me down for the Cessna 140.  Should make trimming a bit easer!

One thing to point out to any of you building on this thread is that if you go to the page on the VMC website for your particular model (Jodel, SE5 etc...) there is a tab that says "additional resources" under this you will find PDF's of the Markings sheet to print on your own choice of media, as well as ones for the paper/ acetate part outlines with a fine hair line (to save tracing from the plan)

Cheers

Sean, the Cessna 140 sounds good.
If the "no no pointing" appears, it sometimes help to point to the shoe shelf or to the handbags Roll Eyes

Andrew, thanks for the tip. This makes things a bit easier.

By the way, my Tiger Moth should be on the way Cheesy

I had to pick up a parcel for my Beloved from the Post Office today. Unless I'm much mistaken, It's VMC kit box size...

Looks like I've been good enough this year!

Game on.

Dan,
        I hear another slightly larger box has come your way. Looks as if you are about to become even busier!
