Hi Richard;

I won't say much as I am still in shock. :blink:

 

You DO know the war is over and we won right?

 

Most excellent work.

 

Cheers from the West Coast

We don't seem to have a jaw-dropping emoticon here, so you'll just have to pretend that I've used one. That is simply spectacular. Possibly the most realistic and convincing scratch-built landing gear parts I've seen.

Hi Kev, thanks for the kind words, had a nice dimesional drawing of the leg and one of the connection arms but do not have drawings of the rest so I am scaling of draings best I can.

Goodness graciuos, Richard, I never . . . Every update is a new learning experience. Thanks a heap for sharing your work.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

 

Hi Mark, I am learning each step of the way to fiqure out how I want to make each item, and hope by sharing what I do, someone else will want to do the same.

 

Yikes!!!! Most impressive. :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

 

Thanks again Bill

 

Intense.

 

Thanks alot John

 

 

 

 

Id say its deserved...............

Thanks for that Brian, just trying to make as per drawings and pictures.

 

At every posts I am amazed . this is truly master class building at its best.

OLiver

 

Oliver you make me :blush: it was your build which sent me down this road, and I thank you for that.

 

:wow: I think I'll give my entire stash away, thinking of quitting. I just don't know what to say to yo any more. I can't even dream this stuff up. Rich, my friend, you are a god, a god of modeldom......Harv :o

 

Harv my friend, I'am no god :shrug: just someone who builds different, but that did make me :rofl: and dddddddddon't even think about giving your stash away or quitting !!

 

 

Thanks everyone for looking in again

 

Richard

God Almighty, you have a milling machine...

 

well that explains a lot :wub:

 

Hi Rich, love the machines, they do help alot.

 

This is a project that transcends a few different disciplines and combines them into one. Modeling,scratchbuilding,machining and artistry all rolled into one. Awesome.

J

 

Thanks very much Jerry, I still feel that if you have the right tools, someone to teach how to use the tools, drawings, anyone could build what I have done so far.

 

Nice work, but Rich you know you're gonna have to get busy soon

and start weaving the fabric for the rear fuselage.

 

:innocent:

:o

 

Wow Richard,

 

I am going to have to come out for a look. Just got back from Houston, spent the week there to get out of the flood ciaos here.

 

Hi Ron,

We will have to get together soon, has been a week eh!!

 

 

Thanks alot guys

Hi Grant,

Long time since last Post, as always summer gets in the way of getting down to the model room :(

 

But having a great summer, daughter got married, had all son inlaws faimly down from Fort St John BC, they camped out at our place due to the floods in June, also had my brother and family out from England, so it was trips all over Alberta to show them all the nice parts, and also the best part was drinking lots of beer with my Bro :beer4: .

 

Will be back sometime in Sept once I start making parts again.

 

So hope everyone is having a good summer.

 

Regards

Richard

Good evening all,

Had my summer break, or was it my Wife who said you have items to do!!!

Any way made a few things for around the house, now it is time to get back to the model room, started by machining the screwed cap which holds the braket to leg, this should be screwed but for scale I have made it so that it will press on. I will do this once I drill the holes so that I can mount the movable leg.

This picture shows it in place but not pressed all the way.

 

IMG_6320_zps3ac4509c.jpg[/url]

 

Then I started to make the outside frame work, this has alot of tubes which are made from tube and bent to square at ends, and middle so I have tried to replicate.

I got some great picture from Thomas who I am in contact with, he lives in Switzerland and he is building a 1:12 scale Hurricane, so thank you very much Thomas.

 

So this is what I am trying to do,

Thats it for now,

Hi Richard,

Those are pretty amazing machining skills on display. And that cap with the brackets is a work of art within a work of art.

An inspirational thread.

Best, Jean

It's been a while since I commented on this thread and I think it's long over due...Brother Richard, I hate to say this out in the open but I must for the sake of other modelers...you are an Alien that MiB of Area 51 couldn't catch and you transformed into human body to hid yourself, but you, no you...you thought I/we would know and wouldn't catch up to it. The enormous amount of talent and intelligence is a dead give-away buddy. No human being can do such incredible stuff. I don't care if they can use a machine or not. So, I call NiB now...lol :D

 

Seriously, totally mind blowing work with those landing gears. As if you are shrinking the real stuff to fit you kit. Did you barrow the shrink ray gun from the scientist from the movie Honey I shrunk the kids?

Egads, I don't know what else to say except that it is getting harder and harder to tell the difference between your model and photos of the real machine. Brilliant!

Hi Jean,

Had to think how to machine these pieces but once I figure it out :hmmm: it went the way i wanted, I'am lucky enough to have the equipment so it is great tthat I'am putting them to use, did buy quite a few very small milling bits which have come very handy. Thanks for looking in and your kind words.

Superb detailing, Richard. Could Hawker have made this aircraft more complicated? At every turn there's a frame.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

 

Thanks again Mark, you are right, cannot believe how many pieces go into making this plane :o must be something to do with the British :D it has taken me off and on 3 years, so I reckon it might take me another 3 years the way I'am going :whistle:

Richard

You say this about my work Peter, I have watched your build on the Sea Fury and I will return your kind words to you :clap2: :clap2:

 

Regards

Richard

 

This goes beyond mere modelling Richard, it is minature engineering at its very best; I applaud you :clap2:

 

Derek

 

Hi Derek, thanks very much but i follow what you do and so many other modellers on this site.

 

Regards

Richard

 

Stunning !! I have a feeling there won't be anything left of the Trumpy Hurricane once you are done :piliot:

 

I am beginning to feel the same Thomas but I will keep going and going, just can't stop now :wacko: :shrug:

 

Regards

Richard

Very nice of you to say Frank, have so many pictures and drawings I now know how the Hurri was built, will try and build as per the one on wheels as per this picture, minus the covering.

Just one last picture, last night made the stiffening braket which will connect to the air cylinder and glued it to the connecting arm.

Again thanks to everyone for lookimg in,
