Ryan PT-20 or STM-S2, So Dutch or Australian ??

Recommended Posts

Hello Gents,

Following a bet with @jrlx I'll ask to join that great band of wet feet  modellers.

Knowing myself, I did'nt start a great thing since it must finished in January :rofl2:

Since yesterday, I Wonder, did I join in ? Or not ? But wich will be my entry ??

Martin Marlin, Catalina, Kingfisher, none of these could be possibly finished in time.

Then I saw over the cabinet... This one

WP_20170903_13_47_18_Pro

I picked her up with the idea of selling her on evilbay, since I have 2 of these...

Seem to be a decent kit with a funny diorama base :coolio:

WP_20170903_13_48_47_ProWP_20170903_13_48_54_Pro

WTF ?? But, can get Something out of this, will be a first...

So, Thank you, hope that the subject will fit the GB..

WP_20170903_13_49_17_Pro

Given the figures, that seem to be 1/48 but that's so tiny !! That will change a lot from the P-47N :coolio:

WP_20170903_13_49_03_Pro

Now the painting...

I don't know what to do, Netherland AF or Australian AF

Which color, paint metal like this one ?

Ryan-S11-floatplane-San%20DiegoXXX.jpg

Or from Qantas in australia like that one ?

img06.jpeg

Seem to have been painted in green or Brown ??

Up to you Gents, just let me know what's the best choice for you

Because I'can't decide myself

Have a very good modelling time !!

Sincerely.

A big kangaroo, for sure.

Precisely my Dear.... I don't know and I can't decide myself.

Dutch one in metalic paint will be the easier, but there has been painted Dutches too...

Sooo, :hmmm:

Is there any Flying Dutchman here around ???

Just let me know what will suit the best for this GB.

Sincerely.

Hello CC,

This is a nice choice of subject.

 

As far as I know, all Ryan trainers put into Australian service had the floats removed. They were left in Rose Bay (nice beach in Sydney) with them on for long enough to be photographed, but those were NEI  aircraft; all with floats removed before Australian service/registration.

 

Aussie Ryan's:

 

http://www.goodall.com.au/australian-aviation/ryan-stm/ryan-stm.htm

 

My vote goes for Royal Netherlands East Indies Air Force Ryan's. The STM may be slightly different to the '20', I can't remember. I knew three weeks ago, it's been a hard month :D.

 

I don't know if any at 'Little Norway' in Canada has floats. That was a lovely paint scheme.

 

I would still go for the Netherlands East Indies ones.

 

I like the base, it's water, that's why the floats go in so deep. You could have quite some fun painting the water effects on that :thumbsup2: 

Best regards

TonyT

 

PS: Look at the page on the link, around 4th photo down; painted 'green with orange triangle' Dutch East Indies Ryan's; on floats :thumbsup: .

Hi CC

 

Great choice, given that the Netherlands are your neighbours I would build theirs, rather than the Aussie one !

 

Right come on now no more shilly shallying please, time to crack the whip and get on with it :whip:

 

Given that you have till December, you could sneak another small one in before the end :wicked:

 

cheers Pat

Hello dears,

Surprising, the cockpit will be easy to do !

WP_20170903_22_03_39_Pro

And the engine too !

WP_20170903_22_03_51_Pro

Seriously, I can't let it that way !

On the other hand, using the diorama base is pretty tempting.

Sooo !

WP_20170903_22_27_03_Pro

I will use one of thes little guy ! put him on backseat and creat the front cockpit !

Both the 2 of them seem to have fun !

The fit of the fuselage seem good !

WP_20170903_22_08_57_Pro

But there is always a devil in the box and he's lying here !

WP_20170903_22_30_22_Pro

Will find some docs since there's a lot Spadulent rigging on the floatplane, I already holed the wings.

Should I find some evidence, seemingly the japaneses have captured a lot of STM

In japanese colors that can be fun too !

Ok Model finished, let me introduce you to the STM stealth !

WP_20170903_22_49_40_Pro

That will be fun, I think !

Ok Gents, have a very happy modelling time !

More to come soon.

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

A last one before get to bed. was wondering about the Menasco !

Havin' a print or a resin mock up and Bling !

Special Hobby has been kind enough to give us 10 cylinders for the Roc's perseus !

WP_20170903_23_35_34_Pro

I opened the other intake, I think that it will be the carb intake and an oïl cooler !

On the other hand, the Roc need a gunner, so one of the little guy will be exchanged for the surplus cylinder !

Good deal !

Have a nice modelling time and take care !

Sincerely.

Hi CC,

 

Welcome to the GB! I'm glad you accepted my challenge to join :) You have chosen a nice little floatplane. The parts seem to be well moulded and there's room for some scratch building of the cockpits :winkgrin:

 

As can be seen, you haven't wasted your time! I'm starting to wonder what was all that talking of "not finishing GB entries in time" about :D

 

Cheers

 

Jaime

Hi CC

The poor chap in the front doesn't appear to have a seat !

I'm sure there is a EU regulation that requires this, after all even Ryanair gives you a seat ;)

Great progress

cheers Pat

Hi Pat

Dutch companies, even worst than Ryan air :rofl2:

EU regulations  !! The best way to "disturb" any thing !

5 years and 890.000 € to study an european dimension for the toilet !

How could we possibly live whitout that ??

Thanks for the kind words !

Hello Dears,

I fear to becam e real toecutter, look,

WP_20170904_20_47_47_Pro

The guy in back has a look alike seat but feet are too far , cannot put a seat for the empty front seat !

Since his profile remind me someone.

I use to call him Vital, So vital will receive some paints soon !

Chasing the sink mark now !

WP_20170904_20_48_26_Pro

I also opened the oïl cooler intake and the carb intake, the oïl cooler is a NACA one one the lower part of the cowling .

Seem easy but, step by step, found always Something to add or fix !

More to come soon.

Sincerely.

 OK, this Aussie has taken the bait - but not quite in the way that you might expect. I have no opinion on which would be the better version. But the point is moot since I think that you have already chosen the Nederlandische version? Nice choice :).

 

Cheers,

Alex.

 

PS, how's Percy - and where is he?

Lucky Puffin. Hope he brings a book back for me (not fermented fish like last time :sick:).

Hello Dears,

This puffin is amazing ! I really enjoyed the time spent with him for his record breaking chilli game !

The goat was alas a little bit less amused :worry: Goats are that way ! Never satisfied !

PS can apply to anyone, you can think about !

Hope I can spend some time for modelling on the evening.

Have a very good modelling time !

Fermented fish .... Yuk ! I agree Tony, that's the less amusing side of your friend Percy !

Sincerely.

Oh Dear Baron,

For sure! Modelling is a very serious thing, so let's laugh a lot !!

And Percy is such a dear friend ! For everyone !

The fastest Puffin in the world, will wait for October and trying to pass Mach 1

So we could write "Clamorous puffies on his beak :rofl2:

Thank for the kind words !

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

It's war at CC home that 3 last days and it is not about to end soon seemingly.

2 Holzkopf together !!:coolio:

So yesterday, it was communication breakdown from the zeppelin

and today this one... Full bore !!

WP_20170906_20_15_41_Pro

 

Here's the way I tried to improve the engine cowling

WP_20170906_21_05_54_Pro

It will look that way

WP_20170906_21_06_14_Pro

Hooops, must thin a lot the lower lip of the oïl cooler !

WP_20170906_22_02_32_Pro

First exhaust stack, seem to look good !

So Vital received some painting, seemingly he has a White ?? Flightsuit !

On the other hand this is a tropical area and they are sailor, so it is possible !

What you Gents think about that ? White is a good bet ?

WP_20170906_22_22_22_Pro

Start to look better I think !

Must be carefull since the PT-20 is NOT uneven at all !

Ok, have a nice modelling time and take care !

Sincerely.

WP_20170907_19_27_30_Pro

Smell of Aussies in Korea, already have the decals !!

Worked on my next RFI instalments too !

Exhaust ok now.

WP_20170907_20_18_13_Pro

Go back to my bench for a little while !

Ach ! totaller krieg, das ist schlimm ! but anyway, she just let me in peace ! no talk mean no squabbling !

Sincerely.
