Loving the progress on this thread  Smiley

I have got stuff on the go .... as usual I start with some of the details that can be built independently.
This gets around my impatience when I do get the airframe made.

Cylinder parts for the dummy Oberursel U.0 engine.

DW, do you spray the tissue before or after applying to the model?  Mike/Rich, I got a more opaque white by rubbing chalk directly on the dull side of the tissue and not "rubbing in" the chalk afterwards.  This approach makes applying the tissue messier, and the loose chalk sometimes interfered with glue stick adhesion, but gave a more opaque and brilliant white.

I spray the back side before covering, I normally print my tissue then spray and cover.

Time for plan B, my labrador had her way with my Nieuport and it sustained quite a bit of damage not a total loss but it's going to take some work.
Plan B is to move the DH-9 up in the rotation.

Ugh, my heart sank reading that...  I used to have a cat that liked to play hide and seek with my balsa.  I say again, I used to have a cat...  Not sure I could ditch a lab over that though.

There is a lot of cooking here!
Very nice builds. I always admire the nice and clean covering results you are showing here...
Very inspiring, keep the new coming.

She is OK I hope?  Bit of a dog fan you see!

Yes this is becoming a very entertaining and inspirational topic. 

WWI aircraft are fascinating but we do tend to produce rather pristine models.  From what I have learned from various sources even when leaving the factory they were not by any means “concours”. Also after a short time in service they became very grubby,  soaked in oil (and so were the pilots) the fabric  where not saturated with castor would turn mouldy and takeon a pleasant shiny green hue. The stress of flying and heavy landing on very uneven airfields put stresses on the airframe which makes me wonder, given the finite measurements on some rigging drawings, how on earth the riggers did their job.  I may well try to “weather” mine a bit - it will help conceal blemishes!

I've been looking around to see if there's something quick and easy I could build to join in with this cook-up (once my current non-WW1 project's finished). I think I'll do a Fokker V23. There's this mostly sheet Mooney peanut version in the plans gallery which looks fun and easy. Haven't decided yet whether to keep it as a peanut or enlarge a bit.

(Ratz, for some reason, in the gallery it's listed as a Fokker V24, instead of a V23, so that might need changing to aid future searches.)

Good am comrades. I will check in by saying that I have sprayed tissue with Design Master and found it to be very lightweight, AND I could run it through the printer, with acceptable results. Also the same can be said of Doc Martins Spectracolor. Very lightweight ink you get vibrancies without adding any noticeable weight.

Here is proof of my slow progress on the Tripe-Hound! This is 1/64 sheeting I got from MAL. Very lightweight. What you see weighs 4g including the foam cowl. Does anybody know of an early version Tripe that featured a slight hump aft of the gun breech? The plans I am basing this build on show it, but I cant seem to find any proof of it anywhere. No thing, since I am gonna be the scale judge here, and I am very easy. But I am gonna base the color of this ship on the docs I find showing this hump! It looks like I am going to stain condenser paper with RIT or chamomile tea.

Great choice Pete! looks like a sheet job to me!

I think the Bjorn Karlstrom drawings show the hump.

Shifting gears back to MvR video.  If you read the comments posted below the video, a viewer mentions that at 1:40 (ck comment, I'm sure I've mis-remembered) MvR is wearing a tether beneath his helmet that may be holding his bandage for his head wound from the bullet.  There is definitely something visible.  Interesting.

Love the models.  There are a few I'm really interested to see fly.  Also, I built a Dr1 from Lee's and mine was very stable even in windy conditions.  They're tricky to launch.  Mine is prone to scraping off its landing gear on a fence, sign etc.

I did put dihedral on mine, but I'm of the opinion that it could fly w/o it...hindsight.

I too would like to do another.  Larger, like 16" to make it easier for my fingers and eyes.

That looks great DW.
Can you share how you do that. Smiley
It's pretty cool.

Does anyone know why these 2 contour lines are different on the Rozendaal details?

Tony,
   The left side of Nie 17 is larger due to the storage
of ammo for the fuselage gun. Long ago I had asked the
late Dan-San Abbott about this.

Thanks Dave,
This thing.

So for a peanut, I just pick one that works for me, for both sides, and call it a day? Cool

I suppose one needs to encourage the topic starter now and again, poor soul, so here is my SE5 fuselage so far - and if you feel that is mind blowing I have also made a start on the wing.....

Crabby,
From the way back stash.
The first is an old pic, the other 2 are from the Northern Aeroplane Workshops replica.
The Greg Thomas Ultra detailed tripe in the plans gallery also shows an upward direction towards the butt stock.
Most of the pics I have show it, it's just hard to see. You almost have to already know it's there.
Hope it helps.

Tony thanks for the great pics, I am convinced, the Karlstrom dawgs show it too but mostly it’s hidden. I am aware of the Greg Thomas masterpiece in the plans section and I have been referring to it.
