Very thoughtful dining room arrangement. Good idea to have African Zebra there to eyeball the decalage. They have good eyes I hear! Roll Eyes

So, I see David's post and my first thought is, "This is not going to end well".

My second thought was, "Very nicely done SE5. Pity".

Don, the DVIII is looking wonderful. I really like the cowling and engine details.

Crabby, the Tripe is really coming along. I really like the way you have built the wings with minimal wood usage. Very light.

dputt7, what can I say about your WD11? Beautifully mastered woodworking comes to mind. This is inspiring me to build a multi-engined electric. Either a WWI subject or the flying boat I have always wanted to do.

Nearly two hours in and all quiet.  I notice the Port decanter is empty - must fill it!  Amazing when you see a photograph how much needs attention. No pitot head, radiator cap gunsight ......... hmmm.

Beautiful SE5 DavidJP!  And have to say, it does seem to blend in nicely with the African theme.  My money is on her not noticing it until the evening.

Another beautiful airplane dputt!

Really nice David.  Do you mind re-capping the vital statistics and provenance? - this is a difficult thread to sort out the sub-threads!

Not bad David - I would be proud to have managed that. The detail work and the colour sets it off.

    David,  Well Done Sir! Totally as expected, a fine example of the modellers art.

    Tony, that cowling is amazing, how did you get it to weigh the same both ways.  Grin

   Rich, Electric, multi, flying boats make good models, I've built a few, try to pick one with retractable tip floats.

Thank you everyone - much appreciated.  Now let me see if I can maintain this momentum!  The self discipline and being organised is quite an effort - but enjoyable nonetheless.

Sorry Mike - it is from one of Iron Mike’s plans - the 18i s span version. He also does a larger one.  24ims.  Not sure what else I can tell you, conventional construction but have to say Mikes designs are very “friendly” to build.  I did get Mike to make the decals for me and it is a Dave Banks (unpainted) pilot.  I made the wheels - usual method of balsa hubs with polystyrene cord tires.  The radiator “mesh” is simply printed off from an image found on the computer and stuck in place.  Rad louvres from plasticard, as is LewisGun and the Vickers. The latter being mush easier to fashion. Motor wil be rubber but size to be determined.

Agree with all the other comments David:  beautiful SE 5!!  And a great comment OZPAF re tross's cowl:  weighs the same both ways............ Grin Grin

I added some 1/32 strips here and there to either side of the stab 1/16 sq frame, then sanded to a very modest symmetrical airfoil.

    Your DVIII is looking quite smart Don.
Been working on the floats for the WD 11, pretty straightforward, I chose some quite hard balsa for the lower sheeting back to the first step for a bit of durability. The struts attach right on the top edge of the floats so I bent up some 3/32" alum. tube in a "V" so it could mount over a wider area on the bulkheads, the tubes were then sheeted with balsa to fix them securely. I cheated at the rear of the float and used some filler to blend in the rear keel.
     Next I fabricated a jig to hold the float in the correct position relative to the fuse.

  In position ready to bend up the float struts, I think I'll need lots of wire!

dputt7, that is really beautiful. It's nice to see an electric that doesn't come from a laser-cut kit! My scout is beginning to shape up. It's an all sheet, the problem is I can't get all the joints to meet up nicely. I'd post a pic, but I'm still trying to find the cord to the camera.

Thanks for any suggestions,

Paul

Dputt7, that airplane is really looking nice and a fine job of using sheet.

Crabby, the DVIII is rocking! Can't wait to hear of flight reports.

Flying conditions here in Texas have been terrible or I would have more to report on BE12 flight progress. I am making headway on repairs to older models which is nice in having a larger selection of planes to fly.

Alright, here we go, I finally found the cord after weeks of looking (of course it was on top of the pile.) The issue is the seam is not very good and has gaps in-between it. In the pictures it's kind of hard to see. The one towards the front I figured out how to deal with, and just haven't gotten around to it yet, but towards the back where the curved piece comes down (pic 3) doesn't look very good and I can't seem to fix that.

Thanks for any tips!

Paul
