 Had a quick look on google. He does come up as flying Bristol F2B B1113 of 48 squadron RFC.
 There is an image for Kieth Parks F2b ( also flew with 48 squadron).

 Serials were either in white or black on the fin. 48 Sqn identifying markings appear to have been 2
 Vertical white stripes after the rounded. Not much but hope it helps.

  I've started a 1/32 Fokker D VIII.

  Cheers

Check out Wings Palette at http://wp.scn.ru/en/ww1/f/112/9/0
Most are side views with a few top views. You may find some ideas on selecting a cam scheme.

Great start Larry.

1 - Nieuport 11 has wings blocked shape. Even in 1/32 scale these wings are thin.
2 - HMCS Aurora yet to be started. Did find out the Royal Canadian Navy revieved the Royal ascent in 1911 and had two ships. It was the third largest navy immediately after WWII. Today is just a shadow of those days.
3 - Nil progress on the Mark I

Moving along:

1. Nieuport fuselage, wings and tail feathers rough cut. Engine started.
2. HMCS Aurora drawings scaled to 1/350 scale. Will come out about 14 inch length.
3. Mark V drawings scaled to 1/32 scale. Will come out at 9.9 inches. Note switch to Mk V as it was the only mass produced tank of the lot.

Engine cylinder wrap. I wish I had smaller wire but alas I am an ID + level builder. Next will be to paint the cylinders black and then shape the intake manifold.

 Fuselage and wing are balsa. Tail plane is 1.5mm ply.

 At this stage I'm planning on making a " half " Oberursal.
 
 Work will be on hold for a few days as I will be away.

Went to the Australian War Memorial yesterday.

"Mephisto" the captured A7V was in there last time. There is now the Mark IV tank in its place.

 The left side sponson has been removed to reveal the interior.

 Toss up between the Whippet and the Mark IV now.

 Nieuport is looking good.

 Cheers

 Gordon
