  1. Found yet another one, from the dawn of my scratchbuilding efforts, a model from 13 years ago. What is an Archaeopteryx, besides a very good Scrabble word? Literally, an “ancient wing”. And you know that with that kind of name…err, it will look…well, you get the idea. The Granger brothers started to build a plane upon a design of their own -refined by Latimer Needbam- that flew in the very early 30’s. It was influenced by the equally bizarre –read “beautiful”- Pterodactyls built by Capt. Hill. Although unusual, it has a pinch of elegance. The engine used, a two cylinder 3
  2. A very tiny cute little thing from 2 years ago: The light plane concept of course isn't new, and during aviation history a significant number of efforts were directed to produce a small, affordable, low-maintenance, low-power, low-consumption, one or two person machine that could be (hopefully) acquired and used by a large number of people. The concept, as we know, er...never really took off, but many interesting planes were produced, mainly in small numbers. England was one of the supporters of such concept, and organized many events and competitions to entice design and prod
  3. A little Dujin resin from a couple years ago: We modelers are truly grateful for the small/cottage kit industry. They release kits that are a joy, different, out-of-the-beaten-path and frankly delightful -and civil-. They do not posses or have access to all the resources that big industry has, so they do their best. Many times their standards are really high, and sometimes they are not really quite there. But without them, we may be condemned to a dull, repetitive endless stream of the same-old-same-old. So, to all of them, and in this case the late Monsieur Dujin, o
  4. I am posting this at the request of @TonyTiger66 It is the WiP (not posted at the time) of this RFI: This is a build from 5 years ago, and this kit was from a batch produced long ago. Now the production shifted to other group of people that seems to be doing things better in many regards. The wing should be like in this "Les Ailes" photo: The wing (even with the wrong trailing edge) is the only part that is a near perfect casting: Pr
  5. Here is finally the completed model that I built for a friend and fellow enthusiast. The manufacturer states that this kit belongs to an earlier production batch, and now they have switched to a different resin. Some rascal of those who hang out around the hangars stole the caps for the filling of fuel and oil, so the plane can't be flown. Bummer. The rascals may return the caps when the replacement vinyl framing for the canopy arrives, to replace the one in this kit that may have been degraded or dried out. The pros and cons and the various issues with this kit can be seen
  6. Here is the completed model of this attractive and widely produced parasol monoplane in its colorful civil guise, that started over the Holidays at the in-laws under extremely harsh conditions (British food and unintelligible language). My thanks again to friend and fellow modeler Sönke Schulz, the kind donor of the kit from his Zekret Vaultz at the Volkano Lair. The aftermarket photoetched set and decals were a nice complement to the kit, that in spite of its age can still be made into a nice model. I have two more kits of this charming little thing, that I look forward to turn
  7. Another beautiful little kit from KP to add to their increasing line of refreshing, attractive, and significant civil planes. The Praga E114 was conceived and built in Czechoslovakia during the mid and late 30s and developed into a whole family of two-place, side by side sports and touring planes with changes in the power plant and details regarding it’s control surfaces, landing gear and glazing, among other minor modifications. There is abundant information on the Net for this one, should the modeler wish to look up for details and background history, as well as -for the more adven
  8. A build from 5 years ago: The albatross is an unwilling character of the infamous Monty Python sketch, but the Albatros (one s) is a nice cute little plane of the early 20s. Mind you, this is in the thick of the biplane era, that will last for (too) long. This remarkably "modern" design says a lot about about mainstream wrong choices. After some information gathering and much mulling over photos (found not a lot, but enough to get a sense) one of the plans was selected as a guide (plans are never, ever, fully correct, although they are of course much welcome especially for u
