    WW I Fighters

    Yeah, Darwin,

    And, while on the subject of planes with animal names, don´t forget the Etrich "Taube"!

    Building those 25 cent Comet stick and tissue things was truly a rite of passage. It told your friends you'd graduated from the simple Structo-speed (You could get a Fokker DVIII for a dime in that series) models, and were running with the big guys now. My recollections of WW1 planes always brings me back to the series produced by Aurora, back in the late fifties, seems to me there was an incredible number of biplanes, each including a ground crewman. A Fokker DVII, Neuport 17 or Spad are always the first planes I think of when I think of that era. Ken Horne's webpage has a great collection of plans available for download, of those old Comet Kits.

    Comet 5 Cent Planes

    Thanks Rob,

    I immediately fell in love with Jason´s little nickel scale Ryan ST trainer. I have downloaded and printed the fine scale drawing on a large paper and put it on top of the "future build projects" pile.
    The trick is to put it there VERY GENTLY, so that the COG doesn´t shift - otherwise it might tumble and fall to the floor, and I wouldn´t know what to do next . . .

    best,
