    Hi all

    I've added another model to the continuously growing pile :) I've had Maly's Dr.1 sitting around for some time now just beckoning to me to start. 2 years ago I started this one only to find that the former material I was using was too thick. If you're going to build this one, use 1mm or just slightly under. Anything over will not work.

    The construction starts with building a superstructure that almost seems strong enough to stand on :) If things are cut with care, everything goes together nicely and is almost self-squaring. The fuselage panels (2 sides, bottom and top panels) are all separate and need to be glued with care to make sure that everything lines up. I should have snapped pics of the formers but got way ahead of myself when I saw that everything fit as advertised.

    Next in line will be the cockpit interior. More pics to come :)

    Ron,

    What's the engine look like? I'm stalled on doing the pushrods and rocker arms on the Oberursel U1. Fuselage does look "hefty",

    Best, Gil

    P.S. Need a new Picture of the Week...,

    P.S. Bebok, very nice building job. What scale is the model and did you articulate the engine (does it rotate).
