When "Those Magnificant Men...." was released, a company called 'Entex' (I think, or was it impact?) made 1/48sc models of the aifcraft from the movie. This one was re-boxed later on, as a LifeLike model...but is the original kit.
I bought it at a PX, a couple of years ago, and is NOT a 'fun model' to make. The only thing keeping it together at this stage is the rigging. Its since been shelved, after finishing the starboard wing.

A month ago, or so...on the General Modeling page, there were questions asked on what to do with a Ferret! One idea was to turn it into a 'hydroplane' ie..Sea Dart, well..why not a Hydrofoil?

As you can see, we know how the B-28 will be finished. With an overall of Midnight Blue, it will be in somebody's navy....but who?

This is my second FZG 76 from 'Plug-it' models with all the parts lined up. The fuselage halves have been cut out at this first shot.

This is the High Planes model of the Payen PA.22 'Flechair'...with some modifications! With the wing and canard, I drooped them, and with doing that had to extend the tailwheel and then I changed the main undercart...giving it larger wheels. Placing a pilot in the cockpit meant I couldn't add the canopy, so that was modified as well. And last of all...it now has a three bladed prop...and it's 1/72 scale.

Back to the FZG 76 II glider...it now has crew!
With the P-402, why not a twin Me-109/ Spitfire/Hurricane/Tiger Moth...no, sorry...that's been done! How about a twin P-47! That would be one hell of a Jug!

As to having 'enough projects'....I'd die if my mind was idle...an idea comes into my head, and I must start it...full stop!
This makes the third French aircraft I'm working on at the moment...Tophe should honour me with an award! Of all the pre-WW1 aircraft built, this would be my all time favourite. Using the plans from an old Scale Modeller, 1967 (think) with plans of all the aircraft from 'Those Magnificant Men....' I had the plans blown up to 1/48 and built her in thick paper. The wing rods are tooth picks, and all the U/C is Evergreen, and the rigging is piano wire..the thinnest I could get. The radiators are plastic, and to date...the port side has been fully rigged.
Aircraft :Antoinette
Scale :1/48
