Hi Gordon,

Very nice work.  I'm still not sure I understand how you accomplished the wing rib/fabric illusion.  Looks most convincing.  Do you cover your thread with tissue or something, or is it just primer and sanding...?

 Thank you Abe and Ken.

 Ken,

 I used the doped thread method on the Aeronca. There are some pictures in the project.
 After applying  the tread with dope II put on a couple of coats of Primer, sand it back and reapply primer .
 Seems to get the desired affect

 Nearly but not quite finished.

 A bit more work is  required on the wheels.

 Some paint touching up still to be done.

 Cheers

   Thanks mate!

   From 1913. 2 were built. The designer as eventually tied up with Nieuport designs.

   There are plans around for a 3Ch Rc model.

    How goes the 747?

     Cheers

  It is now finished.

  Unfortunately the pictures I've taken are somewhere in the digital world.

 I'll get some more and post when I'm next at home.

 Hopefully get it done on Monday which is ANZAC DAY over here.

 Cheers

 Gordon

 As a result of having some good fun with this model there is a 1/48 Nieuport 11 that has been started. Details to follow.

  Cheers
