Scratchbuild Phonix D1

Recommended Posts

David Hansen and Steve Bakke put me in touch with Jerry Robinson (an awesome and generous guy) who is retiring from the hobby. Jerry had seen a couple of my WWI builds and decided to entrust me with about 60lbs of his WWI aviation references. I want Jerry to know that I will try to make sure that his stuff gets put to good use, so I am clearing off the workbench to start a scratchbuild Phonix D.1 in 1/32nd scale.  The wheels and cylinder jackets are turned on a lathe.

Great to see another scratch project bloom here. I learn so much from others.  Glad to see some reference libraries get a good home. I'd imagine a lot of them just gather dust  in the attics of disinterested heirs (or worse!).

Agreed, projects like this can only make us a stronger community here. The things we learn from each other, are IMHO, some of the best ways any of us can learn and expand our building techniques.
