Breguet 691 / 693, project 1/32 scale resin

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Now that this project seems practicable, I can speak about it

 

I am happy that this project interests you.

Three years ago I began to search for documentation, but most drawings are wrong if we compare with the original manuals.

So this model can not be compared with these drawings.

 

It's necessary to draw it before make the model

Several dimensions and details was found in original "notice descriptive Breguet 691 N°5, Centre Essai", "notice technique Br 691" and the original drawings Br 691 and 693.

 

Below a part of drawings (scale 1/1)

it is always exciting to see a new 1/32 kit, and especially one as iconic as this one is to fans of French aircraft. Thanks for letting us see the work in progress, and hoping for a chance to obtain one of these in the future.

Thanks for opening up a WIP about this! Can't wait to see how it comes along, and hopefully I'll get a chance to get one if you put it into production.

Hi,

 

Before continuing the other molds, it was necessary to be sure that the fuselage was castable.

because the thickness and many detail as main frame, frame, stiffener, the fuselage will be very difficult to cast.

Without the fuselage, it is useless to make the rest of parts.

 

MostlytRacer vacform the shells(1,5mm plasticard) on the master

drawing the frames, stiffeners are already in place. (I use plastic strip for frames and stiffeners, and plasticard for main frame)

and the first test.....theere is some bubbles, the ambiant temperature is too warm (near 30°), the resin harden too fast, bubbles are trapped. The fastcast is Veryfastcast

Another fuselage casting, made the night when the temperature is lower. it's better.

For the next, I try cast it in the refrigerator.....

Already, the last week my wife find the mold in the oven....

Hello,

 

Two brass tube (dia 2x3mm) go through the fuselage. The wing root receive two insert (tube 3x4mm) sealed with epoxy
I use a V block to maintain the fuselage and a marking gauge to obtain the same dihedral on both side.(5° 35' or 9,77% underwing)

Afterward, inserts will be embedded in the wing root during casting

In the resin model, you can put a tube behind the pilot seat, it's exactly the place of a wing spar. In this way you obtain the correct dihedral

and there will be no effort on the fuselage
