Well done Dan - great looking model - and admire your tenacity in overcoming everything that got thrown at you and get it done. Inspired me to get back to the Bristol...

Thanks for the kind words folks. This model gave me the inspiration to finally tackle a 30" model of a Grumman Guardian. I purchased the kit from Mike Midkiff well over a year ago, completed it to the point of covering, and stopped. The intimidation factor of covering a completely round fuselage was off the charts.

Well I can now say that everything except for one wing panel and the cowl is covered.  I've resurrected the build thread in the Free Flight Scale forum.

Just about finished covering the PeaNot Fairchild.
Proper esaki and dope is such a joy to work with  Smiley

Steaming comes next. The yellow wing and tail tissue was preshunk on a frame, but there should be a little bit left to take up the wrinkles.

P47 Update: Washout Question -
I've yet to include this in a model, and it seems like this is a perfect time (and model) to do this. 10" wing = 1/8" at the tip?
Do I have this right? 

I attached a schematic how Im thinking of building this.
Do I have this correct too??

Like this Jug to at least fly a bit - trying to build 'er lite and strong. (biggest plane ive yet build - other than the control line some 40 yrs ago!)
Thanks for all your insight and wisdon

Very pretty Jon, can already tell it’ll look good in the air.
Ken, seems like an appropriate washout setup for that size to me.

Congrats Dan, it looks beautiful! Silver is a tough tissue to get done right. And the rest of the finish is top notch too! Yellow wings fly better.

Never a real fan of 'bond paper' coverings - thanks to Mike Nassise plans I'm now changing my viewpoint and starting to enjoy it. Did some reading of some of the other threads which helped - suggesting watercolour painting paper and other types. Used here is a piece of coloured copy paper that's close as I could get to 'balsa colour' so there is no bright white bond paper showing through the tissue. Anyway, the paper is done now and it's on to the tissue and struts etc etc...

Had fun on Saturday with the Fiat G.50. Got most of the big bits done. Didn't have much time to spare on Sunday but tried pulling in the front of the fuselage to meet F5. I wet the balsa to help it along, but the glue joints dissolved and it started disassembling itself! - so much for thinking the PVA I'm using is my usual exterior grade/ 'waterproof when dry' variety. Any way, quick re-build and an overnight to dry has allowed me to get to what is shown in the piccy.
The fuselage is currently wedged into a crude fixture to hold the front end onto the former whilst it dries (overnight).

Nice save Rich. Damn that PVA.
Just some covering progress. I know we all worry about getting the covering just right. But every close up I see of WW1 planes seem to show terrible covering jobs.
For the Bristol I pulled out a sheet of 'Earlybird Tissue'. Must have been in the box for 30 years...  The time has come!

Wow - I've managed to recreate that level of finish many times!

There was something funny going on with the stringers around the cockpit on my G.50. The side view was looking good, but in plan view, the edges of the cockpit were splayed. I've had to make some adjustments to the notch positions to rectify, but otherwise, it has been a fun build so far. I just need to get the tail fin built and invest some time with my sanding blocks before I can do a proper bare bones shot.
I am a little worried about the top spar only wing, but I'm building to plan with this one.

I have really been working on this model. It just has taken some time to get things together. The wings and tail feathers are covered and doped. I did the nose block (not shown) and worked on the canopy. The canopy framework is bamboo. I split bamboo from dollar store coffee stir sticks. The 'hoops' were formed over a shaped block with a soldering iron and touched up with the same heat source to get the right curvature. The center hoop was made from two hoops glued together to get the right thickness. The weight of the bamboo is only about 0.25g.  I added some infill in a few places to take the load. Marco's canopy was the incentive for this. Thanks Marco.

Fiat G.50

Basic bits finally built. I had hoped to build the whole frame last weekend, but didn't manage it. I have been stealing moments of time throughout the week to get it to the stage shown. Quickly cobbled a couple of engines on powerpoint, to which I might add some pushrods to give a bit of texture/ relief to make it a little less flat. I added the dihedral as shown on the plan. 1.1/2" looks a bit harsh, and if I were to build it again, I think I would make one deviation from the plan and reduce it.

Thanks for the bones shot, Rich. Looks good with that 'engine'. Looking from afar, it does not seem that the dihedral is at all excessive.

Great looking models, everyone.

I've been seeing MN plans for years in his excellent newsletter, but had not seen one built in real life or even in color pictures. I am fascinated by how approachable his designs are and how they look the part, when built.

I got a catalog of plans from him a few years back and there are a lot. I wish there was a way to make them all available like even with a booklet like the Golden Age book of plans. I wonder how approachable his family or should I say receptive to the idea of compiling his work. There’s too much good stuff there to have it go into a state of stagnation!
