« on: December 04, 2017, 05:04:22 PM »
Following Gordon's recommendation we will have a cook up starting 1 Jan 2018. This cook up is commemorate the hundred anniversary of end of the First World War. Suggestions are requested as to how to structure this build.

 A suggestion would be to google aviation events 1918. You should get a great list of things.
  I suggest any aircraft in the search result. Scale is personal preference.
  Models to be completed by Armistice Day 2018.

  I'm going to attempt 1/32 Sopwith Scooter and Swallow . If time permits a 1/32 Sopwith Dolphin.
  Cheers

I have had a craving for doing a Biplane series like Tom Solury collection.
They look around 1/32 scale. Maybe a 1/350 ship or two and I need to attempt a tank.

Vehicle section: I will make a Mark I tank or two. Maybe a male and a female.
Aircraft section: I love the Nieuport series.
Ships: trying to find drawings of SS Imo and SS Mont Blank. These two ships collided in Halifax harbour 6 Dec 1917 devastating the city and surrounding area. The collision created is the largest non-nuclear explosion of all time. Amazingly the Imo was salvaged and sail again under another name. Parts of the Mont Blanc hull were reported reaching 300 ft of altitude. You can view the details at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halifax_Explosion

 For a tank I'm looking at a Medium A Whippet. 135 track links and for a ship HMS Killybegs.

Just re-discovered a great book I've had for years:  FIGHTER AIRCRAFT OF THE 1914-1918 WAR ; by Lamberton and Cheesman; 1960
It has roughly 90 aircraft featured in 3 view measured line illustrations, along with numerous photos and technical details.  If anyone would like a scan of a particular plane, email me and I'll do what I can...

Ray, here is your opportunity to do your SE5.

I have some Profile Publication Profiles of several WWI aircraft.

Further research revealed that Canada had two ships at the beginning of WWI and received two more from the Royal Navy. All of which have no decent deck plans on line. HMS/HMCS Rainbow has limited drawings. Several Royal Navy ships were crewed by Canadians so more research is in order.

Found decent waterline drawings of HMCS Aurora. She will launch at 14.95 inches in 1/350 scale.
