RODEN , Sopwith Triplane

Recommended Posts

Hi Willi,

 

Engine looks great, love the spark plugs.

 

Dave

 

 

Thanks Dave ,

 

 

 

They are not to hard to make . I used the nuts and bolts from Vector Cut ,tubing was .6mm ,the rod was .25mm.

Hi Willi,

 

Thanks for the tip these look great and appear easy to manufacture. One of the few shortcomings of the WNW kits is the mysterious lack of spark plugs and I don't like the idea of having to buy a set from Taurus Models every time I build up an engine.

 

Cheers

Hi Dave ,

 

Yes the spark plugs are easy to make with the tubing and the VectorCut nuts you can make lots of spark plugs in an evening . I still like the Taurus Models spark plugs ,but if they are hidden then you are better off making your own . As you can see I put the cowling together and not too much of the engine can be seen .

I started work on the interior of the Sopwith by adding bracing wire and adding the pulley for the elevator control .

The only addition to the IP is decals and clear rod to the pulsameter (lower left ) .

The decals are from the 1/48th Airscale WW1 set . I always thought they where to big for 1/48th !

 

 

Thanks ,

 

Willi

Absolutely incredible work. After your magical touch, the The rotary is a gem all by itself. Super work on teh cockpit interior; the floor boards are simply outstanding.

Keep 'em coming

The fuselage I ordered are a big improvement from the original . It`s 6mm longer . I added the bracing wire .

Today I glued the fuselage together and glued the bottom wings to the fuselage . I still have to add the seat cushion and seat belts .

the strut wood graining looks perfect and as natural as it gets. The front office interior looks spot on as well

Keep 'em coming

Thanks Peter and Dwight

 

 

Well this is not the nice WNW`s kit , but I`m doing the best I can with the Roden kit . I made the resin seat cushion and put the IP panel into the A/C today . I`m just waiting for the seat belts I ordered to arrive in the mail.
