double construction - Avia BH.9 + Avia BH.11

Because the Avia BH.9 and BH.11 are very similar aircraft and their kits have the same origin, I decided to build models of both aircraft at the same time. Both kits (Avia BH.11 from Smer and Avia BH.9 from KP) are in 1:50 scale. And because my collection of models is in 1:48 scale, I will adjust these two models to the same scale.

I will build the Avii BH.9 as a single-seat version, which (among other things) became famous in August 1925 for a continuous flight (without a stopover) on the route Prague - Paris - Prague.

Avia BH.11 will receive a standard military tricolor camouflage with national emblems in the shape of a flag, from the period of its service with a military unit

Fantastic start! I will follow with pleasure and interest, of course 🙂

Tolik tedy s tou "jednodušší stavbou" 😄 😄 😉. Velmi ambiciózní projekt 👍

To Alec:
It wouldn't be me if I built a simple model simply. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Today I continued with other modifications to the fuselage Avia Bh.11

Nice! Co se dimenzí týće, z čeho vychaziš? Máš nějaké plány?

Thanks Alec!
Ano, mám výkresy z L+K, z mofeláře a z knihy Václava Němečka - Československá letadla I. Pokud se týká velikosti, měla obě letdla stejné rozměry. Největší rozdíl mezi BH.9 a BH.11 je ve tvaru přídě. Avia BH.9 měla oválnou motorovou přepážku a tím i zkulatější tvar přídě (po 2. trupovou přepážku. Avia BH.11 dostala kvůli zjednodušení výroby obdélníkovou motorovou přepážku, takže její trup včetně přídě je celý až k motorové přepážce hranatý. Avia BH.9 měla většín podvozková kola než BH.11 a pozdější serie BH.11 měla křídla s ostřejší náběžnou hranou. Jedno místné úpravy u obou strojů vznikly zakrytím předního pilotního prostoru a jeho využitím pro insatalci další palivové nádrže. Navíc u BH.11 existuje mnoho speciálních verzí, které se konstručně v mnohém liší od základní vojenské verze.

Díky moc za info. To se bude hodit až se do nich pustím s 1:72.

Ta trupová modifikace se ti skutečně moc povedla. Klobouk dolů 👍

Rádo se stalo.

Kdybys potřeboval podklady, až to budeš stavět, mohu Ti to, co mám k dispozici poslat.

Předem děkuji.

Gorgeous work on that cockpit interior 👍

Robert Podkoński
I agree with Alec here - terrific work!

Gentlemen, thank you very much for your kind words.
I decided to make a new cockpit because the parts in the kit are too rough and most of the cockpit equipment is missing. And the second reason was that I was enlarging the model to a scale of 1:48 and the few parts that were usable are small (because they are in a scale of 1:50).

It is a bit insane what you are doing here, but I like it. Go ahead. Cut the fuselage another time, no?! 😜
9 November 2021, 20:03
Ludvík Kružík
Yes, it may be a little crazy, but I enjoy it ... And that's what it's all about. 🙂

Ludvík Kružík
After a short break, I continued to work on the fuselage of the Avia BH.9 today. Now it's time for sandpaper and putty.

Alec K
Nice precision on that cockpit installation 👍
13 November 2021, 13:00
Ludvík Kružík
Thanks! This is the advantage of a cockpit tailored to the model. 🙂

Ludvík Kružík
After a short break, I continue to build models by producing a cockpits for Aivi BH.11 🙂
22 November 2021, 11:07
Ludvík Kružík
A small step forward in working on the model.

Nice progress Ludvíku 👍

Thanks Alec 🙂

Work continues on the cockpit of the Avia BH.11

Ludvík Kružík
The cockpit for the Avia BH.11 is ready.
7 December 2021, 22:41
Alec K
It's coming along nicely. I have to try that sliding cockpit install technique someday 👍
8 December 2021, 13:51
Ludvík Kružík
For Alec K:
Thanks!

This technique has its advantages. When manufacturing the cockpit outside the fuselage, the individual parts for assembling the cockpit are more accessible. However, it is necessary to work precisely so that after inserting the finished cockpit into the fuselage, there are no gaps between the cockpit and the fuselage.
8 December 2021, 16:29
Alec K
Agreed. I imagine the added sidewall thickness is of concern as well (at least for me in 1/72 scale).
8 December 2021, 19:51
Ludvík Kružík
I make the side walls of the cockpit from a plastic foil 0.13 mm thick. This is comparable to the thickness of office paper. Both sides of the cockpit made of this thin foil narrow the cockpit by 0.26 mm. At 1/48 scale, this difference is negligible. I no longer build 1/72 scale models. But I think that even on this scale, the narrowing of the cockpit by 0.26 mm should not bother you too much.
8 December 2021, 21:35
Alec K
Hmm, that is probably true. Thanks for the info 👍
9 December 2021, 14:09
Ludvík Kružík
You're welcome. If I can, I will help. 😄 😄 😄

Little progress in construction ... Avia BH.9 and BH.11 fuselages and wings received the first surfacer spray.
14 December 2021, 16:24
Alec K
The droop in the canvas on those wings is superb 👍
15 December 2021, 04:03
Ludvík Kružík
Work continues in the new year. I started assembling the engine for the Avia BH.9
6 January, 21:03
Ludvík Kružík
I finally made time for Avia. After completing the partial assembly, I sprayed the assembled fuselage and wings with primer.
17 January, 21:51
Alec K
Superb progress Ludvíku. It's indeed nice when the wigs can be added 👍. The scratched fittings on top of the fuselage are really nice 👍
18 January, 00:52
Ludvík Kružík
Thanks!
I'm very curious what it will look like when the paint is sprayed on it 🙂
18 January, 14:48
Alec K
It will be a beaut 👍 😄
18 January, 15:08
Ludvík Kružík
I hope you are right 🙂

Ludvík Kružík
Today I sprayed a camouflage scheme on the Avia model. I'm a little closer to the goal again
😄

Robert Podkoński
Looks perfect! I would not believe that you have enlarged the original parts, if I haven't seen this here, Ludvik. And all these hinges... fantastic!
19 January, 05:50
bughunter
What a carnage! That are the most correct Avias ever built in 1:48 👍
19 January, 06:56
Ludvík Kružík
Thank you Robert for your kind words of praise. I really appreciate it.
19 January, 09:23
Ludvík Kružík
bughunter, that's a really big compliment! Thank you very much!
19 January, 11:15
Alec K
Colors look great! I'll have to compare your paint color mixes with mine (I sneaked a peek at your build thread on Modelforum).
