    Thanks, Tim.

    These two models are the subject of a step-by-step build thread I did over at The Aerodrome Forum. The server has been down since yesterday, but as soon as it's back I need to post the last few bits on propellor carving and some finished photos. I'll post a link here as soon as we're back in business.

    Gaaaaaaaawd, I hate you guys. I really enjoy WWI era aircraft, spending a fruitless struggle trying to build the Saulnier N.

    I dont know how you guys do it.

    BTW, fantastic job.

    Cheers,
    Brad

    Yikes!

    Trial and error . . . . and error and error and error. I actually had a devil of a time figuring out how to string up these birds, especially since the rigging has to be functional to keep those long wing from drooping. I think I put the Pfalz together and took it apart again three times before I discovered the trick.

    The propellors are paper - 11 layers of cardstock, laminated with CA and carved to shape. The rough shape is whittled out with an X-acto knife, then I finish with sandpaper and polish with a Dremel tool. I keep trying different ways of doing this because that much CA can get a little nasty, but nothing else seems to be able to saturate the card and also be strong enough to carve.
