Peyret Tandem glider 1922, 1/72nd scratchbuild


Recommended Posts

A model from 11 years ago:

 

Let's try with another glider:

French extravagance and flair is not just limited to fashion, as this Alérion Peyret of 1922 demonstrates. Of tandem-wing configuration and with a fuselage in need of a corset, it nevertheless won the soaring competition –at the hands of Maneyrol- at Itford, England, in 1922 setting an endurance record of 3 hours 22 minutes. Some time later Maneyrol pushed the record beyond the 8 hours mark with the same plane.

The model:

At 6.6 meters of span it is small in 1/72 scale. Images will walk you through the building process.

An interior, as succinct as conjectural, was provided. Wheels from Aeroclub, struts were from Contrail and Strutz!, but you have to eat Liverwurst as you use the latter, which guaranties success.

A beautiful little model Moa - impressive scratchbuilding skills too!

 

What an interesting design and wow! - what endurances for soaring! Very impressive. Can only imagine sitting in this little thing for 8 or even 3 hours!

 

Cheers
