Dornier Do-82 - a 28 with a twist
« on: May 18, 2017, 07:59:40 am »
Thinking of doing something with a Revell Do-28 may be replacing the Lycoming piston with Turbo props or jet engines.

Might beef it up into a COIN aircraft or something else .

Or might just sit in front of the telly in my underpants with a beer and peanuts wondering when my true love (modelling) will ever comeback to me <sigh>.

That Revelbox kit is wonderfully Whifable.

A turbopropped Do 28 was actually done:

I'd forgotten the wonderful SALSA, thanks for reminding me Jim.  :thumbsup:

Why not put radials on it instead?

Great concept. I have a similar one on my project list - with engines from a Matchbox A-10, but also with a retractable landing gear.

Subtle: lengthen the engine pods and give it retractable undercarriage.

Less subtle: give it wing-mounted turboprops, say off a Do228.

Radical: convert it into a helicopter (the fuselage is remarkably helicopter-like when you look at it on it's own).

I would have never thought that the Do-28 would be so popular as a whifing subject, but low and behold, I'm working on a VTOL tilt wing version too!

Such a cool little plane, can't wait to see what you decide to do with it.

If you made one into a helicopter you'd have a spare set of wings, so you could get another Do 28 and turn it into a biplane by fitting the spare wing on the lower fuselage and attaching the engines and undercarriage directly to them: no struts or wires of course because the wing is fully cantilevered anyway. You could credit it to De Haviland Canada and call it a Dragon Rapide II.... :wacko:

Certainly still up for this but could be starting late. SWMBO has me penciled in for relaying the 'lawn' (actually it's Astroturf so the Grandkids can play football). It's become a little bumpy over the past few years so with little B..... grand kids not coming around over the weekend she wants it done. Of course the weather in the South East isn't playing fair .... good weather so no poor excuses of not laying sand in the rain. Long and short of it I will do as much of the kit as I can in as short a time as will be left but I may not be uploading any progress. I'll load it all after the cut-off or earlier if I finish earlier (fat chance).

I may upload kit details on Friday night if I get a chance.

Darnit! I'm hoping to find one to use the fuselage for a CV-10 conversion and now you're giving me ideas for the unused wings...
Not Fair!  :banghead: :lol:

Ah well, there goes the last micron of sanity... :rolleyes:

Ah, the CV-10, a lovely looking thing indeed.  :thumbsup:

One day I'll finish mine, it's only been 'in build' for 8 years.........   :banghead: :banghead:

I'm afraid I'm out of the build. Managed to remove the top of my middle finger on my right hand. Nicely wrapped in a big bandage, still throbs. Makes modelling a little difficult.
