  4. Still doing some research, but hope to end up with something looking like this: Appears to be two schools of thought towards the finish of these particular aircraft, with either overall aluminum or CDL surfaces -or could that possibly be opaque yellow? I had thought of using a shade of horizon blue for metal surfaces other than the cowl, but now I'm not sure if the floats were constructed of metal or wood? Any takers?? --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Anyhow, this is where it's at so far on the bench. On the left side, below the dime, is initial gluing of the fuselage halves. Not sure if it is warp-age or what, but only applied cement at the cowl end and once that was set, some hand held pressure coaxed the back half together. Next to that is Small Stuff resin engine of the Clerget 9B/Z (130/110 hp) Engine. This will be a like mini kit to build, I count about 46 pieces in total. Even a tool is provided to handle the tiniest detail. Lastly, Minute72 PE detail specifically dedicated to the Hanriot. The PE cockpit detail is done, and although the instructions do indicate four points to attach control wires, I'll likely skip that being 1/72 scale. The seat cushion is not affixed so it can be painted separate. Lower wing attached, and dry fit of the PE detail inside the fuselage. The interior required both walls and floor sanded down. regards, Jack

  6. Resin WWI Engines 1:72 & 1:48 Small Stuff Models Small Stuff are a new company to me, at the moment they produce a range of WWI rotary and in-line engines in 1:72 and 1:48 scales. Looking at their website it seems they may be branching out into other scales and other eras. The engines are small models in their own right. There is a central hub to which all the cylinders attach. For each cylinder you then have to attach spark plugs, intake tubes, valve rockers & levers, and push rods. Some of these parts are small and to help with the smallest parts a special applicator is included. It is also worth noting that "extra" parts are provided,as I am sure I can here the carpet monster salivating at all these small parts! All the arts are excellently cast with no flaws I can see. The sample engine pictured is 1:48 scale, but the 1:72 scale ones are just as detailed. Engines currently available are; 1:72 Engines Wright R-1820-F (Shvetsov M-25) Engine Le Rhone 9C (80 hp) Engine Le Rhone 9J/Oberursel Ur.II (110 hp) Engine Clerget 9B/Z (130/110 hp) Engine Oberursel U.I (100 hp) Engine Gnome 7 Lambda/Oberursel​ U.0 (80 hp) Engine Oberursel U.III (160 hp) Engine Gnome 7 Omega (50 hp) Engine Gnome Monosoupape 9B-2 (100 hp) Engine Mercedes D.III (160 hp) Engine Mercedes D.IIIa/aü (180/200 hp) Engine 1:48 Engines Le Rhone 9C (80 hp) Engine Clerget 9B/Z (130/110 hp) Engine Gnome Monosoupape 9B-2 (100 hp) Engine Gnome 9 Delta / Oberursel U.I (100 hp) Engine Gnome 7 Omega (50 hp) Engine Instructions I only really mention the instructions in a "in box" review if they stand out in some way. These instructions are excellent. Clear CAD drawn pictures and minimal text really show you how to put these engines together. As a way of further help to the modeller they have an excellent photo tutorial here on their website. Conclusion These engines are models in their own right. There is no doubt to the reviewer that if you put the time into these they will enhance any model you put them on. Highly recommended. Review samples courtesy of
