Bigger solids
« on: January 11, 2018, 04:32:21 AM »




My winter projects started with this de Havilland Heron which has sixteen individually carved balsa blocks for the engine nacelles alone ! the project is scratch built from a 1/72nd three view drawn onto cereal box card,no polans just scale up as I went along with my trusty old school compasses,500 hours gone into her so far.
Checking in to say I am fine and happy building.
Barry.

And the Rapide that was built just prior to the Heron.
