 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.
(http://smm.solidmodelmemories.net/Gallery/albums/userpics/normal_Tom_Solury_Collection_001.jpg) 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.

Nieuport 11 Bebe has been started. Drawings are scaled, printed and pasted onto cardboard for templates. May do two?? At 1/32 scale it is a small model measuring 7.13 inches with 9.28 wingspan. I have not made a biplane in quite a while except for the toys.

 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

The hull blocks are rough cut out of recycled mahogany baseboards like the remainder of my 1/350 ships.
