Bart Goesaert Nice one. I do hope with you they will re-release these beauties. I think the Fokker Dr.I is still available in 1/72 and the airco DH.2 in 1/48. When you really want, Brengun also has an Airco dh-9 I think, but in 1/144 scale, but this one i a whole other level... and Jasmine models also have a Ho-229 and a F6F-5 Hellcat as a stripdown

gorbygould Amazing job!

Choppa Nutta very cool indeed !! :)

bughunter The strip downs has its own charme! I recommend soldering, it is much more robust. My Piper was falling from the bench, with only a very little damage. My Storch is on the todo list, and the Camel has to be finished. The others are done.

Tom What a super cool kit. Fascinating! I'm a little confused about the "crash". Does it fly?
11. January at 09:05:42
Mac Felsing Not intentionally. It was in a box on a fireplace mantle and got knocked off, box and all. Fell a couple of feet. When I opened the box. I had pieces.
S__t happens
11. January at 14:03:54
Mac Felsing Now I am rebuilding it. Almost complete, just a couple of more things to re-attach, and I also need to re-build the acrylic cover that goes over the base and it can go back out on display and maybe to a couple of contests

Alec K Very excellent work Mac

Steve Wilson I've heard society dropouts drink Meths, even Surgical Spirits under the flyovers of the World, because it's so cheap, well cheaper than a good Malt anyway!!! But they don't live very long, so keep off the White Spirit, if it strips paint hey! think what it does to your innards, yuk! Best to check the bottle first, be safe stick to SCOTCH :D :D :D

Holger Kranich Safety first, Steve, Safety first! ;)

Mac Felsing LMAO to all of you. Here's to you all. May the road always rise up to meet you!, May you paint thinner be clear and strong. May your eyes be sharp, your hands steady. And may you always have a larger stash than you could possibly work in a lifetime!

Mac Felsing Had to repair this plane. bothe wings, struts and some of the PE had been knocked off when the box it was in was knocked off a shelf. I had been putting off fixing it for the last 3 or four years. got is mostly back together . Will have to retouch the paint. , repair a couple of PE parts and it will be good as new. I had an acryllic case for it that I build that also got broken. I will need to rebuild that.
See the new pics

Mac Felsing Dec 8 - started laminating the upper wing tips as well.
9. December 2018 at 05:41:08
Mac Felsing Dec 9 - Upper wingtips both formed. Turned out well and seem strong. need to seal the edges with a little CA glue. Happy with the outcome.
Next up is to make a CA glue application tool using a double pin vise and a couple of needles. with the eyes cut to form a half loop. Then will use that to start gluing the rib caps to the spars and forming the wing.
In the lineup are the other ribs - need to sand edges, apply rib caps. Used Jim Landon's build from 2005 as a guide and excellent resource. The kit has been modified since then, so some of the issues are not the same but it is a great source of build tips.
10. December 2018 at 02:06:29
Mac Felsing Dec 11 - Glued #1 rib to the spars, fixed the spars and wings to the building board with pin, Glued #2 and #3 ribs to the spars. The rest are in place, I used a pin vice and a needle to make a super glue applicator which worked really well to glue the ribs to the spar. When I made the glue applicator, I clipped both ends of the needle - I cut the eye of to make a holder for the glue and clipped off the point just so I didn't accidentally hurt myself. ;)
12. December 2018 at 04:46:05
Mac Felsing Finished gluing ribs to the spars, test fit and adjusted the wingtip fit. Included a picture of the glue applicator as well. It was a lifesaver and made the task of glueing the ribs relatively easy and neat. Next step is cutting, gluing and shaping the leading and trailing edge, and matching up mitered joints to the wing tip. Wingtip has to be trimmed/sanded significantly on the trailing edge to provide a smooth transition from 3/16 on leading edge to the 1/16 or so of the trailing edge.
Changing the way I am doing things on the next 3 wings to simplify construction. I will share as I go. Check out the pics.
18. December 2018 at 00:14:09
Mac Felsing Added leading and trailing edges. Started to shape. Adding a couple of layers of laminated to the leading edge of the wingtip to match up and shape the wingtip more easily. Pics added.
23. December 2018 at 06:27:47
Mac Felsing The wingtip is on, leading and trailing edges shaped, mostly, and false ribs installed. Next up, are the nose ribs that go in between each of the ribs, front spar and leading edge. Not sure if they need cap strips on the bottom, will have to do some research on that. Then the leading edge cover that goes back to the front spar, then creating the scallop for it. In the meantime I'm also starting the rib caps on the upper left wing and laminating the trailing edge center cutout.
27. December 2018 at 01:07:50
Mac Felsing Half o f the false ribs added to the upper right wing. Shaping the center trailing edge. waiting for eyebolts to mount on the wing spars to tie the turnbuckles onto. Also trying to figure out how the compression bars will be mounted and how to affix the turnbuckles to those as they are not cast the way the instructions say they should be. Almost have the left upper ribs capped and will be adding them to the spars in a day or two. The wing is really starting to take shape.
31. December 2018 at 05:19:33
Mac Felsing Created a collection of all of the model airways kits that I have. check it out. I will have a couple of them displayed with smaller scale models going forward. check out the ideas and feel free to comment.
