So it's been awhile since I posted. Reading on another forum about how to create a rib wing effect inspired me to build a couple of WWI planes . . . . well that and watching Fly Boys again. I like to build in 1/72 scale, so I downloaded Prudenziati's Nieuport 17 and Fokker Dr1 from here: Zioprudenzio - aerei di carta - paper airplanes I also took inspiration from Lief on another forum and wanted to do a more detailed engine that would actually spin, so I downloaded Robert Schulten's 9 cylinder Le Rhone and Oberusel Ur II models from here: -Engines WWI - Paperwarbirds Here's the Le Rhone, reduced to 1/72nd scale- a little rougher than I would have liked, but most of it will be hidden behind the cowl. The flattened fuselage. The "assembled" fuselage showing from lower left in clockwise order: engine backing/firewall (scratch built), engine cowl, 9 cylinder Le Rhone engine, pilots seat, and propeller. And a teaser showing the installed prop spinning! [YOUTUBE]Z7YMaWV5uOY[/YOUTUBE] More to come later tonight!
