Looking very nice! Great effective use of various materials and substances!
That Rub'n'buff is good stuff, although I do find it needs topping up and rebuffing occasionally.
(I wonder if it could be used to silverise an entire aircraft, or whether it would be rather heavy.)

Hi Pete, I found that a tiny bit goes a long way. I would not hesitate to use it to silverize any sheeted area. I didn’t want to mask and spray or cover with tissue. The wax in the compound fills the grain also. I also bet it’s moisture proof as well.

Crabby,  the tripe is looking good. The double edge razor in the picture finally gives a sense of size. Very nice work for that size model.

I agree- a little dob spreads very nicely and it's perfect for sheeted areas or solid parts. I was thinking it might even be good on a doped tissue wing or stringered fuselage though. I suppose the one problem might be if you need anything to stick to it; it's pretty waxy, as you say.

Hi Crabby,

Further to Rich Adams razor blade comment, I didn't realize you were building so small.  Very nice work!

And have to ask, where does one buy  'Rub & Buff'.

Good evening fellows, Thanks for your comments. Don I found the Rub & Buff in the marker and craft area at Micheal’s. I did all you see in the pic with 3 fingertip dabs. The only thing is, like Pete said, it’s gotta be the final touch because of the wax content, hence the black thread business. I am a little tickled with the Minwax stain, but did find out that you can’t stain over Duco.

Neither did I - skilful to say the least!  This topic continues to excel in provoking masterclass work.

Good am guys. Here is my implied, semi-scale, impressionistic, Monet-inspired, lazy but still a pain in the A$$ embossed Clerget 9 cyl. To simulate the cooling fins I used puffy t-shirt ink and a rake made out of HO scale building siding, and a bit of silver tissue. The raised effect was minimal, but cool so I used it. So light I began thinking of a reduced Cerruti JU-52...forget that. I tried some black on black also but the effect was so "why bother". Now I am thinning out some already tiny bamboo connecting rods, also why bother because you don't see that much of the motor anyway, but its fun and I am forcing myself to stay in the spirit of the build, and also to forget about non-essentials which clutter my monkey mind.

Hi Pete, I tend to agree, I got my wife to give me some eyelid sponges to apply the stuff with, and I have a few war weary soldiers in my model triage unit who might agree to guinea-pig the experiment.

Hi all.  Time I did something relevant to this thread.   I've been on holiday this weekend and the VMC Sopwith Triplane kit lends itself very well to building on the go.  I'll post some pictures in due course but progress over the weekend included all wings tailplane and fin built plus fuselage parts prepped ready to go.  Comrade Darby is to be commended for an accurately kitted and well thought out design.  This will be my kit scale entry for the Richmond contest in Australia this July.

Can't wait to see what you make of this one, Mike. It's a very nice model, with all the delicate 'thinness' of the full size. When I did my big one, I was astonished to discover the struts were  only 7/8" thick

Well the Tripe Hound is looking awesome. No surprise there.
And Don is cutting 1/32" x 1/8" slots in cooling jackets.
Which is technically impossible. Smiley
Good to see Mike, Jon and Russ will be showing me up soon I mean joining the fun. Grin

While you guys have been lounging around I mean moving ahead,
I've finally sliced up a little wood, and started the fuselage assembly.
Just a couple more things to do....
1. Finish
2. Fly

This picture has been posted before but I just came across it while looking for something else and thought it was just really evocative of this thread.

This is a KeilKraft Sopwith Camel - 16".  Generally as per the plan with a few subtle enhancements to add lightness.

I agree, just after the poor pilot has fallen out whilst looping perhaps?  Cheesy

Seriously though, that is one amazing model. Who'd have thought a KK Camel could ever look that realistic!

The Camel looks superb, Mike  Smiley

I'm going to break cover because I need a decent three view if possible.
I'm working on a Mike Midkiff Brandenburg W.20 that I might try to lighten a little for indoor flying.
Probably not for competition, but it's always nice to have documentation if possible.

Tony, you are doing a prop in a way I never had the guts to try...My Dad "Thee Olde Man" did 'em this way now and then but I never could wrap my noodle around it. I have seen some beauties done this way. I have a few done by thee olde man and Art356a. I am watching you like a hawk!

Here is the slow boat tripehound. I never knew about the split axle thing they did with this plane and the Pup and maybe the Camel. But here is a cheat. I will do it right in the Pup. But it does kind of bounce and behave. The wheels are man-handled already, and my 10 gram goal is almost shot to "H". I have to put in rigging gussets before I get too anxious to cover this thing. I am gonna be true to my oath not to use a computer on this model so the markings are gonna be done a'la Ernst just don't tell him. Maybe this Tripe will be called "BLYMP"
