Hello,

Ici, le même article en français:

]http://www.master194.com/forumww1/viewt ... 2&start=75]



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

[/img]

[/img]



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.

[/img]

[/img]



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.

[/img]

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

[/img]


One side, with oil paint:

[/img]


A cart to transport it.

[/img]

Too small...I do it again.

[/img]


[/img]


[/img]


[/img]


[/img]


[/img]

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

[/img]

[/img]

[/img]

Flat rigging:

[/img]


[/img]


[/img]

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...

[/IMG]

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).

[/IMG]

[/IMG]

[/IMG]


[/IMG]

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.

[/IMG]

[/IMG]

[/IMG]




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]

[/img]

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

[/img]



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

[/img]

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

[/img]

added 4 mm:

[/img]

and 1mmm again:

[/img]

I glued a copy of the float plan:

[/img]

The border is remove.

[/img]

[/img]

[/img]

[/img]

[/img]



The "truck" is finished.

[/img]

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

[/img]

[/img]



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

[/img]

The masts supporting the engine are made of lead.


[/img]

[/img]


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

[/img]

A hose through it.

[/img]


[/img]

Plastic stretched...

[/img]

[urlLa]http://www.master194.com/forumww1/viewt ... 2&start=90]La même chose en français:[/url]

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.

[/IMG]

[/IMG]


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

[/IMG]


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

[/img]

[/img]


[/img]



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

[/img]

New rigging ring :

[/img]

New crank,


[/img]

New small pipe connected to the radiator:

[/img]

The new air intake (lead):

Two on the left, one on the right:


[/img]

[/img]

[/img]

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

[/img]


[/img]



The propeller and the metal reinforcements (painted):

[/img]

And it's over:


[/img]


[/img]

Best regards.

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

[/img]

[/img]


[/img]



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

[/img]

New rigging ring :

[/img]

New crank,


[/img]

New small pipe connected to the radiator:

[/img]

The new air intake (lead):

Two on the left, one on the right:


[/img]

[/img]

[/img]

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

[/img]


[/img]



The propeller and the metal reinforcements (painted):

Real modeling skills and effort went into what turned into a great model!!

Hello,

Ici, le même article en français:

]http://www.master194.com/forumww1/viewt ... 2&start=75]



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

[/img]

[/img]



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.

[/img]

[/img]



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.

[/img]

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

[/img]


One side, with oil paint:

[/img]


A cart to transport it.

[/img]

Too small...I do it again.

[/img]


[/img]


[/img]


[/img]


[/img]


[/img]

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

[/img]

[/img]

[/img]

Flat rigging:

[/img]


[/img]


[/img]

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...

[/IMG]

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).

[/IMG]

[/IMG]

[/IMG]


[/IMG]

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.

[/IMG]

[/IMG]

[/IMG]




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]

[/img]

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

[/img]



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

[/img]

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

[/img]

added 4 mm:

[/img]

and 1mmm again:

[/img]

I glued a copy of the float plan:

[/img]

The border is remove.

[/img]

[/img]

[/img]

[/img]

[/img]



The "truck" is finished.

[/img]

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

[/img]

[/img]



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

[/img]

The masts supporting the engine are made of lead.


[/img]

[/img]


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

[/img]

A hose through it.

[/img]


[/img]

Plastic stretched...

[/img]

[/img]

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.

That's an amazing amount of skill and persistence going into this model. The results are just beautiful, a real feast for the eyes! Bravo!
