Inpact/Lindberg/Round2 1/48 Bleriot 1910 Monoplane

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My second 1/48 model ever, the Inpact Bleriot 1910 Monoplane, as re-released by Round2/Lindberg. OOB except for stretched sprue rigging and home-made wire wheels. WIP is here.

 

I got home today and took these pictures outside on my step in fading daylight. If they are blurry it's because I was shivering from the cold!

Thanks for looking,

Adrian

Sir Percy Ware-Armitage would be green with envy at that one and Manfred von Holstein wishes you good luck in the forthcoming London to Paris Air Race.

I have very fond memories of the Inpact kits from many, many years ago. The Bleriot, Deperdussin, Boxkite, Antoinette etc, all really nice and were way ahead of most other manufacturers in terms of quality.

Really great to see one make an appearance on here, especially when so beautifully built.

 

Cheers

 

John

That's magnificent. The rigging is very nicely done indeed.

Lovely build...stand her on her nose, add fake grass, a castle in the background and take a 'sepia' pic!

That is quite a sight, Sir!

 

A really great model. The pilot really brings it to life.

 

You did a wonderful job here with a vintage kit.

 

Splendid stuff!

The wire wheels are a major improvement to this venerable kit. I too remember building these when they were released in the late 1960's and I too thought that they were very good at the time. Looks as though they have sttod the test of time well - in your hnds at least.

Thank you all for the comments!

 

I hope to do some more of these - I have a Lindberg/Round2 re-pop of the Avro Biplane near the top of the stash. Next time I think I might try a darker rib station colour on the vertical and underside faces of the fabric. But in the meantime, I have a number of Shelf of Doom and group build projects that urgently need attention!

 

Regards,

Adrian

They were brave flying those things. 

 

You've made a fantastic job of that rigging. :clap2:

I have the biplane too, and a Bristol Boxkite turned up in the post this week. I feel a trip to Old Warden coming on, just to get a few close-up photos.

Very nice built! I was considering this kit for the Prototype GB (1st cannel crossing) but had decided on something else.

Now I started wondering again!!!! ;-)
