Most PSR done! Too bad dust entered the cockpit and is now sticking to the inside of the canopy. Think the airbrush will solve that..

Nice.  :thumbsup:

Payen’s fléche series are classifed as tandem-wing rather than as canard aircraft,
ditto the Miles Libellulas and the Delanne designs.

Thank you gentlemen.

@ Caveman the prop came from an Noratlas.. it is a tad too big. Probably have to settle for something smaller in diameter like a p-63, p-51 or Spitfire Mk9 prop..

Will you have the model like "in flight" (no problem) or with undercarriage (requiring long long legs)? ;)
Title: Re: Payen Flèche Bleue
Post by: 63cpe on January 13, 2019, 07:00:11 am
It'll be on it's main gear. I've changed the prop to a better acceptable F-27 friendship prop.

What a neat looking machine ! Love the lines. Very aesthetic, and she sure looks a powerful machine ! Definitely looks better in the air than she does on the ground tho lol.

Somehow it looks like half a Vought XF5U-1 with that MASSIVE prop.

It also looks superb as well.  :thumbsup:

Seriously looks like a fuselage designed to be dragged screaming through the air by the engine powering that massive prop! ;D :thumbsup:

Hi,

Good work 63cpe ! :thumbsup:

I dream of making such a model (with the frame of a 1/72 Supermarine Seafire Mk 47 and the wings and canards of a 1/48 Payen Pa.101 or of a Pa.22/5).


What is the frame that you used for this model ? Do you made your own wings and canards ? In what material ?

How do you "stick" wings (glue ?) and canards (?) ?

excellent

especially the single wheel  ;D

Title: Re: Payen Flèche Bleue; pictures @ p2
Post by: 63cpe on April 21, 2019, 10:46:16 pm
Thanks Gentlemen,

@ Deltafan: the fuselage is from an Italeri MC.202 Folgore including the belly radiator and vertical tailplane. The aft wings are made from plasticart (2x1 mm) and the front wings are Matchbox Meteor nf 11/12/14 tailplanes. and because the fuselage and wings are made from the same styrene material, it was bonded by ordinairy (revell) glue. Which has the plus of setting slowly so i could adjust the wings to be even. Aft wings have a slight anhedral. The front wings have a slight dihedral.
