  1. These are all old builds, and in retrospect should have been posted at the beginning of these series. They often represent the first, hesitant steps on scratchbuilding. Here is another from 2006, 13 years ago (original text as posted then): Some times Russians don't make just planes. They make flying poetry. Boris Ivanovich Cheranovsky dreamed about the half-moon gliding on the frozen surface of the lake. And he created a series of planes with a charm that is hard to ignore. The daring design created some stability problems, but most of his planes at least flew, and some times they flew very well. I just posted my scratchbuilt BICh 7a, a smaller, previously designed plane, for size and type reference: The BICh 14 was a transport (four passenger) version, and both date from the early 30's. For the construction of the model I used some styrene, wood, metal, invocations, imprecations, a magic wand and some pixie dust. The interior was provided with five seats, control column, instrument panel and rudder bar, all to be forever forgotten under the dark, impenetrable canopy. The Townend rings were made of two layers of .010 styrene wrapped around the right size of metal tube, and later a half-round styrene rod was added as a lip to the inner front side. Once dry the part was sanded close to shape. The engines were made of scored styrene rod and stretched sprue, and the half-round front covers are heat-and-smash styrene over a rounded dowel end.
  2. I would like to add some limited detail in the passenger cabin. I wandered about buying another cheap kit that had passenger seats already made which I could adapt? Does any body produce 1/72 crew none military, pilot and co pilot plus passengers was wandering about railway figures? Stuck on progress until i can get on with this!
