Army_Air_Force posted a topic in Work in Progress - AircraftAt the back end of last year, I was contacted by a friend who was interested in a couple of Broussard models. After a quick search, I found there were no current Broussard kits available and because he wanted a couple of models, the most logical option was to scratch build a master model, then moulds and resin cast parts. After a chance viewing of a thread here on BM, I found out that there were other people who might be interested in the Broussard too. I guess they'll have to wait and see how this turns out!!! It's quite some time since I scratch built something at this size. I'm more used to scratch building between 1/6 and 1/3 scales! I've just finished a project, and another is nearing completion, so I'm just about in a position to start working on "Bruce", the affectionate name for the Real Aeroplane Company Broussard that I'm using as reference. I have some drawings and photos of the aircraft, but I'm planning a research trip to the aircraft in two weeks time for further measurements and photographs. I should be in a position to make a start on the master parts soon after that visit. The model will be about 7.5 inches wingspan and about 4.7 inches long. Here's a few pictures of the subject aircraft that I was lucky enough to have a flight in last year. @RidgeRunner @Wez @stevehnz @Colin1967 @fightersweep
