Hi,

 

after finishing my Hansa-Brandenburg diorama I asked myself what do build next? What could be more reasonable than a 1/12th scale replica of a Langnase?!

:please: :mental:

 

Mr. Bentley´s plans are highly recommended! They contain all fuselage frames.

Frames of the center fuselage sections:

It take shape – slowly!

Well, talk about an ambitious project! I'll be following this one avidly. Looks like you've got a plan, so to speak.

Hi,

 

I did some mor work on the framework of the center fuselage and the fuel tank chamber = Behälterraum in front of the mid fuselage. The top of the chamber is part of the cockpit floor.

I got a project later on... involved a huge aircraft....4 engine one....1:32.

That is building a frame with glass sides and leds....bsckground is blueprints...and plane on top...then hang the thick artpiece on a wall...just like a painting...and since it got a glass framing...no dust...or say plexi instead...and it will be wievable from all angles...

Maybe that could be something for this project....

Just an input...;)

Hi,

 

some progress on my Langnase:

 

Frame 1 (engine mouting frame) cut from 2 mm plywood.

 

Center-fuselage_D9_Willmer_08_zps6zk0ofv

 

I added balsa blocks from 8 mm board between the MDF frames:

Jack up pipe from 5x4 mm alu:

Tension vs. shape

 

To reduce tensions in the balsa and to enable a curved shell I cut slots into the backside of the balsa stripe. I added super glue and bent it to fit the curvature of frame 8:

I sprayed some activator onto the super glue. The balsa hold its new shape nicely:

Balsa shell glued into the framework:

I am very honest when I say there are very few things I find more boring than a FW190 (maybe a 109 or Mustang :D), except when it's scratchbuilt and in 1/12th scale - and so well done! Can't wait to see more of this!
