I can't seem to post pics of my new Concorde, built from Ralph Currell and Eric te Groen's excellent kit, but there are a couple on my Flickr page here:http://www.flickr.com/photos/80313563@N00/219406743/
Sorry about the resolution, but the only way I have to take pics like this at the moment is using the camera on my 'phone.
Mind you, it looks much better in low resolution, 'cos you can't see any of my mistakes!:grin:
check out this site for the wheaties planes.
Don't click on that link with your speakers turned up. They have an audio file that plays and it scared the heck out of me when i opened that page.
Finally, I have finished something.
Here it is my newbie attempt:
The model has some problems , but it's my first airplane with formers. I'm happy with it .
Phil the link I had to download some of them free is now discontinued.
The Link that Kevin G put up is still valid but there is a reasonable fee.
I'm glad I kept the ones I have so I can still build them with my grand kids
Pretty good as for the first plane.
Yeah I'll second that wish my first build was that good, although I must say I am over the moon to have my first armour model on the homepage :-D really makes me feel part of the forum now!
Sorry Woody...my mistake OOOps!!!!
Great built! Are you going to build the Air France version? I built them both, and going for my 3rd. You know, you have 4 versions of each plane, since the cockpit has 4 different positions.
Way to go!
Thanks! I display my planes hanging from the ceiling, so I don't normally build anything but the plane in flight. The drop nose landing configuration of Concorde is so iconic though, I think I might bulid the Air France version just coming in to land.
A few other things to do first though...
Thanks shoki2000 and gt5000
for your kind words.
I'm trying to improve my skills. I can see in my future a certain ME-329 :twisted:.
i wonder why my attachment on my last post doesnt come up......my cat has been maligned....... :twisted:
Possm_23, I don't know. But unless you "built" Chelsea, I would'nt worry about it. lol (was that even sort-of funny???)
:cry: :cry: :roll:
Here's my latest build, it probably the only cardboard Ekranoplane in the world, from an Sovjet-Russian kit from the 70-ties..
It's not a precisian model, it's not 'Easy but beautiful"
But,he, it was free...
The above "Ekranoplane" look's like a plane designed and built
by Alexander Lippisch when he was working at Collins Radio
in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It was flown by a friend of mine who
was a Collins company pilot. Bob
It's a model of the ESKA-1, built in 1973 by a group of young designers, working at the "The Central Laboratory of New Types of Rescue Equipment", which was a part of the "Nautical Rescue Agengy of the Russian Federation" (source; Red Star Volume 8, Russia's Ekranoplans) Their aim was a fast rescue vehicle, and it was based on a design of Lippisch...
Interesting, I know that Alexander Lippisch was one of the designers of the Me 163, and after the war worked ( like Werner von Braun) in America, he joined Collins Radio in the 50-ties, he died in 1976 so your memories go way back..Tell us more...
BTW he also made this thing, which could actualy fly..(It's marked Collins, so it's from the same time, the guy standing in front of it is probably Lippish)
Is this the one your talking about?
