  1. Great work, it will be a beautiful and unique model
  2. Thank you Engine frame: Fuel tank: Propeller: Further work inside the hull: Work continues
  3. World Championship! It's not a model, it's a miniature plane, bravo
  4. Hello everybody, New project start: I would like to show you the model I am working on in my free time at home. This is a model PZL P.6 from 1931 on my 1/32 "racing" scale. The model is to complement the racing collection that I have been creating for several years, the collection of aircraft from National Air Races racing for the Pulitzer award. These spectacular races took place cyclically before the war in Cleveland, Ohio. Poles and their machines presented themselves twice in these races. The first was Capt. Bolesław Orliński on PZL P.6 aircraft in 1931 and a year later Capt. Jerzy Kossowski on the PZL P.11 aircraft (whose model, also from scratch, I have already made) The PZL P.6 aircraft was a prototype fighter plane developed in 1930 at PZL (PeZetL) of the Polish Aviation Works. The designer of this modern and ground-breaking construction, for those times, was the outstanding engineer Zygmunt Puławski. PZL P.6 was a further development of the PZL P.1 aircraft concept developed by Puławski for a liquid-cooled in-line engine. In P.6, innovative technical solutions were used, such as the "Polish wing" developed by Puławski, a scissor chassis and a very modern and light, half-shell hull structure. The prototype was a demonstration and experimental machine, it had no weaponry. At the end of 1930, the aircraft was presented at the International Aviation Salon in Paris, where it was recognized by the industry press as the most modern fighter aircraft in the world. In this archival film you can see P.6 and Orliński in action (minute 11:47) I derive knowledge about this aircraft mainly from monograph PZL P.7 no. 72 AJ Press publishers, but I also support materials for P.11 and P.24, and what I can get from the Internet. The main drawings are enlarged from 1/48 to 1/32 scale and I build the whole model based on them. The hull for forming the hull was made of MDF board, on which I then formed hot (vacu method) half of the hull: Because there is no commercially available Gnome-Rhone Jupiter VI model in 1/32 scale, so I made it myself: Work on the model is more advanced, so next pictures I will show you soon. Thank you for your attention, best regards Marcin
