It rained all this past weekend so it was a good time to spend some time at the building board. The result was Al Lidberg's "Cruiser" Embryo published in Model Aviation April 1984. The only changes I made was to add the cockpit, wind screen, and head rest to meet the current FAC bonus point rules. Also a pop up tail for DT.  No chance to get to the flying field yet, but hand toss flights in the back yard look good. Embryos are basic, easy to build, and fun to fly models. They are also addictive!

Your "Cruiser" looks to have lots of potential.
Good job.

Great looking M67 Raoul. It should look magnificent in the air.
What a neat Embryo Jimmy. You will efinitely need a DT on that model.

Hi All,

Somehow missed this thread for some time.  There are some beautiful models posted here.

Have to say, that I've drooled and drooled over the Macchi for years and years, but never brave enough to build one.

Simply a beautiful model Raoul!  Any more pics?

Bill,
I'm not familiar with the Hannover aircraft but I can say that you did a fine job on the Pilatus Porter.

Thank you Dave. I haven't built a Guillows before and it was interesting. I thought it would turn out heavy but in fact it is the same weight as my Westwings Puss Moth. No lead in that long nose! I hope to test it soon but I worry the motor will not fit through that tiny hole in the nose.

Hello
My Ta 152 H has got some flesh on the bones .
It will get a Reno racer in a natural metal finish .
I didn't got managed to install retracts because the wing wasn't thick enough .
It's to be removed for flights .

Nothing as attractive as the other stuff shown here recently (great work, guys), but I got something finished at least. I call it the Super Cloud Buster. It's a Comet Cloud Buster scaled up to 30" wingspan. Weight without rubber is 50.5 grams. Not as light as I had hoped, but not unreasonable. One pic shows it with a standard sized one for comparison.

Rounding the final turn towards the home stretch with my Comet D.VII dimer.  I've taken a few liberties to try a few things (like coping with a recalcitrant printer and shoe-box tissue Tongue) plus some extra detailing that is not on the plan (side cowl panels).  The camo scheme is that of the aircraft flown by Max Holtzem of JASTA 16b, drawings of which depict the colors about four shades lighter (the fuselage and horiz. tailplane are close).  I didn't bother to redo the wing for two reasons - no more white tissue and... it's a dimer.  Some paint (white) will be needed for the fuselage band, shooting star and fin/rudder before I do the final assembly.  Weight so far is 10.15 grams including all the wing and LG strut bits, nose block, and the wing locating fixture.  The landing gear spreader wing and wheels, not included in the weight, are lighter than the fixture.

The prop in one of the photos, tho the right size, will probably not be used.

Pit,
   Looks good for shoe box tissue and I don't see much bleeding either.
Not to shabby either on the weight. Hope it all works out well for you.
How did you find what direction the grain went?

Thanks Skyraider!
The differences is the print quality came about due to running out of red in the middel of the printout.  After replenishing, I got impatient and printed a follow-on sheet before the new cartrige fully "loaded" - that was on my last bit of white tissue. The tissue has no "grain" at all.  Ragged tear in all directions and no wet strength whatsoever.  A drop of water does not spread out, but once it soaks through, the tissue can be shredded by a puff of air.  The borders of the lozenges showed no bleeding at all - very crisp - but the little shrinkage that the stuff had before printing is gone.  I had to apply the tissue as tightly as possible, as steaming (non-Epson ink) afterwards only helped a tiny bit.  WWI planes did NOT have perfectly tight covering anyway.

The stuff is quite brittle, even with only one coat of banana oil, so I may regret not waiting to get some more Esaki.

Pit,
Skip the Esaki for now unless you really need some on hand ( and what modeller doesn't ).
If you have access to some Hallmark tissue ( domestic ), that's what I'd go for.  I've found
myself using more and more domestic Hallmark tissue than esaki. But that's just me.  Still,
your project is very impressive. Have fun with it and keep us posted on flights.

I've been using it myself. I notice that it has one shiny side like Esaki. I don't think it is, but it seems to handle similarly. A sheet 19 & 3/4 x 26 & 1/8 weighs 6 grams. How that compares to Esaki, I don't know. I don't have any at the moment.
