    new Gotha G1 from wingnuts

    Dear Sir Peter, Please listen to the pleas and entreaties of your acolytes and addicts: they need a 504. I for one have a 547 triplane awaiting at least a couple of kits. Your humble servant, DM
  2. Take a look at Rob Bentley's site (RB Motion); he has lots of useful stuff including rose joints and rivets to replace the chunky Bburago blobs.

    krow113, Thanks for your heads up. I tried searching for a bender like yours but have had no luck. Robbe do not seem to have one...any ideas for a source? David M Sydney, Straya PS: Nice hillclimber BTW!

    DH.50 info

    I made it to the Library and found the journals (Automobile Engineer) but sadly, nothing on the DH50. I checked all the available journals that might have been relevant (1923 to 1933)...however, I suspect that my memory was faulty (it happens!) and was of the article about the DH61 which it covered in some detail. Lots of other useful articles: DH60 (Cirrus), DH60M, DH66, two on the Jupiter engine, power installation in the DH54, DH58 and Supermarine Sea Lion, Bristol Cherub etc as well a s host of stuff on cars that also interest me. John, Anthony, let me know if you would like copies. I will keep searching. And, John, please keep up your great work; I too appreciate your efforts. David
  7. G'day Anthony,

    Scoot me an email and I will send you the Av News drawings scanned by the redoubtable Admiral Puff.

    My direct email is:


    Best regards,

    DH.50 info

    Hi John, It is indeed I, again. Don't worry about the DH83 drawings, they will keep and health comes first. As it happens I have been distracted this year by my wife's illness and have not been giving modelling much thought. Interesting information on the fuselage and good to know the WNW 9 is a sensible starting point. Now if WNW would only do a 504 I could stop dreaming of doing a 547 to go with the 50... David

    DH.50 info

    Hi Anthony, It is indeed I. Thinking about the DH50 rang a small bell in my head and I think my file was leant to one of my mates who actually made one, albeit in 1:48. I will buzz him to see if he still has it... I am scheduled to raid the library next week, as soon as the NYE cracker watching and bubbly have worn off. Interesting thought to use the WNW lower fuse widened to suit; I figured it was a relatively straight forward scratchbuild but on seeing the kit bits I think you may be right. It will depend on how the interior is finished, unlined military style or prettied up for civilian use. Much to discover! Best regards, David Muir

    DH.50 info

    G'day Anthony, Coincidentally my WNW DH9 arrived yesterday for just such a conversion...one of the Qantas ones in my case. Decades ago while trawling the library for my uni thesis I stumbled across a long-ish contemporary article on the DH50 which had drawings, interiors, etc. Great articles as they generally covered everything in depth and detail and had lots of oddball subjects...the Zeppelin Staaken E4/20 for example. I have forgotten the name of the publicationin the five intervening decades (yikes!) and I had been planning to return and track it down in the near future. I will move it up my priorities and get there asap and share any results... Regards, David M
  11. I too have one of these in the stash and have been gathering information and drawings for the engine. It seems a terrible waste not to at least try to fill the otherwise reasonably detailed void. Having seen how yours turned out I am inspired to get going.
