Hello,

Ici, le même article en français:

The motor is glued to the mats. It is very very difficult. It should have an angle of 3 ° to the horizontal. Not mine....

Joints in the lower wings are fragile. The upper wing is placed on the masts of the motor bearing full weight.


The masts on top of the engine are metal remake. I hope they can suporte the weight of the wing.

So I made a plaster mold to make them with lead. I'm using Fokker DVII mast.

The mould deteriorates quickly and there is some sanding to predict.

The four caps on the fuselage are made of plastic (3.5mm) sanded and covered with a drop of viscous paint to "rounding".

One side, with oil paint:

A cart to transport it.

Too small...I do it again.

Note the protections (leather???) to avoid damaging the hull.

Flat rigging:

All was well until I took my hair dryer to tighten the cables ... Bad idea!
The left side mat were twisted. I have not managed to set upright them. I'm too dumb!
No picture front view!



I finished one wheel completely...

I made a silicone mold to make wheel lead. The spokes are too thin and the metal does not flow into it. The mold have evacuations for air and a tank.
If anyone has an idea ....


The engine is finished. The pipes are copper brass and lead. Exhaust pipes has been redesigned plastic (I lost those in the box).

The windshield is going in transparent plastic sheet. It's very difficult to give a form that is correct. Mine is a little high and I think probably not enough inclined. A frame is cut and glued on top.

I tried to mold a wheel with resin. On the third try I get an complete wheel. but the hub is poorly reproduced. The wheel is too fragile to be used, it is easily deformed. The resin is placed in the mold with a brush.

[img][linked image][/img]

I use a hub from first try to glued it on my second wheel (built).

The floats (Fly) are very wrong. It lacks 4mm long, 1 mm wide and the shape is wrong.

[img][linked image][/img]

I cut the float at the end of the white paper:

[img][linked image][/img]

added 4 mm:

[img][linked image][/img]

and 1mmm again:

[img][linked image][/img]

I glued a copy of the float plan:

[img][linked image][/img]

The border is remove.

The "truck" is finished.

[img][linked image][/img]

At the rear (on the right), the bottom is rounded for easy loading (I think).

[img][linked image][/img]

[img][linked image][/img]



Masts in the photo are too short, 2mm only on their rear.

[img][linked image][/img]

The masts supporting the engine are made of lead.


[img][linked image][/img]

[img][linked image][/img]


The upper wing is placed very close to the engine, 1.5mm. A hose through it.

[img][linked image][/img]

A hose through it.

Plastic stretched...

The tail is glued. The cables that control the rudder (Perhaps the black stuff is for water?) are stretched "cotton bud" and plastic.

Note the flat rod that comes out of the tail for depth control.

The new propeller is carved from the old propeller. This one is wrong....

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]


New generator, it's look like Me109 reservoir...(diam 0.75mm)

[img][linked image][/img]

[img][linked image][/img]


[img][linked image][/img]



New float, new rod supports (evergreen) resized so that they are "flat".

[img][linked image][/img]

New rigging ring :

[img][linked image][/img]

New crank,


[img][linked image][/img]

New small pipe connected to the radiator:

[img][linked image][/img]

The new air intake (lead):

Two on the left, one on the right:


[img][linked image][/img]

[img][linked image][/img]

[img][linked image][/img]

The trolley and the "support" that prevent it from "tipping".

[img][linked image][/img]


[img][linked image][/img]



The propeller and the metal reinforcements (painted):

[img][linked image][/img]

And it's over:

Best regards.

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.
