    Hello Card Modeler,

    I need a few air planes for my Airport Schiphol 1930.

    I start with the Junkers F 24 the orginal design is from Jürgen Quitting. He passed away 2 years ago.

    I scaled the sheet to 20%

    picture 1 > the down scaled Ju F 24
    picture 2 > the different parts to create the Body i laminat normal paper 80g/m² with carton 160g/m²
    picture 3 > how i build the body of the aircraft with different layers
    picture 4 > the last layer on left and right side (paper 80g/m²)

    The next few picture shows you how easy it is to build something in small scale.

    picture 6 > the result with the right amount of layer
    picture 7 > only a other view
    picture 8 > Top and Bottom of the Airplane
    picture 9 > all parts together , not bad
    picture 10 > test how the wings are to build

    kind regards

    Hello,

    the next step the wings.

    picture 11 > I use a mousepad as underlay. I formed the wings with help of a pin
    picture 12 > the wings, and the spars coverd with superglue
    picture 13 > all parts of the tail
    picture 14 > the reinforcement of the tail
    picture 15 > Loading with lead

    next Step: the landing gear

    zathros@ you are right
    It is very unfortunate that there will be never new models from Jürgen. :cry:

    kind regards

    Sepp

    next step the landing gear

    to build this filigran structure i use a easy trick.
    small stripes (0,1 mm) are layered with superglue. The result is similar to plastic card. This stripes you can glue with superglue or normal wood glue. And so it is possible to build parts like lasercut.

    picture 16 > the paper strips layered with super glue
    picture 17 > the landing gear
    picture 18 > the landing gear mounted on the airplane
    picture 19 > the last parts - the fin
    picture 20 > the final result
