Hey PB_guy, if there is time, can you put me down for an M1521 Broussard?  Mr. Mike Kelly himself has sent me some plans, and I've decided to have it jump to the head of the queue and plan to start it today.

"Looks excellent. You got some rubber in there "
I think it was the only rubber I had that day.  But I frequently only wind half the amt. necessary as I don't like walking so far at my age.  Generally, I fly planes like this on 1/8" rubber out doors and half that amt. indoors.

Haven't cut any balsa yet on the Broussard, but finally have the plans ready to go.

I have decided to enlarge the plans 10% from the 22" wingspan, it just makes some of the smaller pieces easier to handle and makes me feel better about increasing stringer size from 1/16th to 3/32nd.

Plan for today is to laminate some 1/32" sheet cross grain to use for the formers, as well as a bit of 1/16" sheet for the front cowl pieces.

Mike Kelly I'm still trying to wrap my senior moment brain around the mods you made to the fuselage. I will get there, just taking some time. Think I'll start the wings and tail feathers first while I cogitate on it.

Dan,

No need change the fuselage like I did, I just enjoyed tweaking it for cosmetic reasons.  It'll look and fly great built per the plan.

I got sidetracked (again) and have yet to cut wood on the Beaver.

Hope all are staying warm, somebody here in Texas must have really ticked off Mother Nature...

Mkelly, I'll give myself the time it takes to build the wing and tail feathers to decide/understand the fuselage mods you did. Would kind of like to emulate a master builder as much as I can. I can look at the photos and sorta see what you did, I can read your description and sorta understand it, but when I try to put them together, plus add in the sketched up plan you sent I get this kink in my brain and start hearing the intro to the twilight zone playing over my shoulder.

Tail feathers have been roughed out.  Almost forgot it has twin rudders!  Shocked

Don't let the camera perspective fool you, the rudders really are the same size. Smiley Smiley

Coming along quite quickly Dan!

  Working on the cockpit for the Apache A-36. I put some printed paper with some plastic glued to the inside for the rear windows. I made a seat for Lucy van Pelt who is the pilot, continuing with my use of Peanuts characters for pilots. I pre-colored the fuselage frame with gray felt pen. I also ran off some pre-printed skins for the fuselage.

  The other pic shows some of our buddies who showed up the other day to drop off some fertilizer for the garden.

Alas, although the herd (and single males) runs through our property quite regularly, I have yet to find them dropping off an antler.

I'm falling behind all the good work being done here.
I have been a bit diverted by my OD Reggiane Re2005, but realised that I have cut most of the parts for the Caudron.
I'll have to retrieve one of my building boards from the shed so that I can have both on the go.

The wing has been roughed out. Guess I'm going to have to make a decision on the fuselage soon! Smiley

The classic Bristol Scout has RAF roundels and a Union Jack on the side...  but what happens when good Bristols go bad??

Some years ago I put together a Martinsyde S-1 as a build called: Martinsyde S.1 ANZAC Half-Flight Build - a model of one of the early Aussie-flown aircraft in the Dardanelles campaign: https://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/hpa_forum/index.php?topic=18958.0

Above the other side of the Dardanelles trenches, the Turkish / Ottoman airforces were also gathering. The German airforce supplied the Ottomans with a large provision of aircraft. Mostly of German/Austrian build, but also comprising some captured aircraft, including a Bristol Scout or two...

Both the German and captured aircraft were delivered to the Ottomans with the current German Maltese Cross over a white square scenario - which conveniently covered the underlying RAF roundel of captured craft.

In an act of what seems in hindsight to be graphic design expedience - the Ottomans painted a black square over the Maltese Cross - leaving a thin white border surrounding.

Not the prettiest design solution maybe, but distinctive, and a nice partner to my existing Martinsyde.

(There was another option - but maybe George K has already done one of these??)

Model progress pics soon

Love your Martinsyde Tim - beautifully done and the Bristol Scout should be a great complement.

Well, ...............

I "Think" I have figured how to replicate the fuselage Mike Kelly built for his rendition of the M1521 Broussard, time will tell.

I have the first fuselage side done about as far as I can flat on the board. Just need to add the rear peg plate, then will build the second side over the first.

Oh, and my rubber order from FAI arrived yesterday.  Need to go back in this thread and re-read the recommendations for a motor for the MO-1.

Ates- Are you planning to make the contest at Waegell Field this coming weekend?  Forecast looks windy for Saturday, 17mph gusts. Better for Sunday, 9 mph. Temp supposed to be in hi 60's to low 70's.
