Hello all, I’m looking forward to having fellow travellers again on this long journey of mine ... Hopefully you can tolerate me still doddering on with this one! I have a long-running build thread over here ... ... but I propose transferring the tortured narrative back over here for the duration, taking up Enzo’s offer to roll-over builds from the last floatplane group build. My current status, in summary: A collection of subassemblies - including the requisite floats - primed in white ... ... since embellished with a flourish of blue to the fuselage spine ... ... & most recently, back in the tailplane jig after accidentally snapping off the starboard stabiliser - sigh! So, I’m hoping there’s an outside chance I might finish this time around. We shall see ...
Polish rumours: 1/48th and 1/72nd PZL M-18 Dromader kits in design. Source: https://www.facebook.com/Answerkits/photos/a.531958733954802/582640225553319/ V.P.
Hooray, Hooray I'm underway, here begins my first BM Work in Progress post! I have this last week just started on this Crusader. Nothing to show in this post, but more to follow very soon. For now, a test first image: All going well you should see a finished model - however not mine. Instead, as the caption says, it's a photo of Short's original wind tunnel model. I hope it inspires you as it did me! If not, then I defy you to tell me this wonderful drawing does not excite: All going well, more soon ... g.
Hi folks, I'll be getting the ball rolling with this Short Crusader; The Short Crusader was built to compete in the 1927 Schneider Trophy competition. It first flew on May 4th 1927 (quelle coincidence!) , but even after several modifications it became apparent that it was going to be too slow compared to the competition so it was used as a hack for the high speed team. On 11th September Flight Officer Schofield was flying the aircraft when he lost control, the control wires to the ailerons had been cross fitted so when he tried to correct a roll, he span into the sea at 150mph. Schofield was thrown clear suffering bad bruising but miraculously no broken bones. The aircraft was recovered a week later when the crossed wire issue became apparent.
