Ansaldo SVA5 Italian bombing and recon aircraft of WWI.  The original aircraft fuselage was constructed largely from plywood and quite robust.  Although not as maneuverable as the Hanriots, Spads, and Neuiport fighters predominantly used by the Italians, it possessed a remarkable turn of speed for the era (147.9 mph), a service ceiling of 20,000 feet, and could remain aloft for 4 hours!  With such abilities it was a natural for light bombing and photographic reconnaissance missions.  It's ability to conquer the Alps into Germany and Austria played a significant role in the latter's eventual surrender in 1918.

And so...I give you a peanut sized Italian delicacy...a little Ansaldo.

One more for the road...from a 1936 Comet plan...enlarged from 15"ws to 18"ws...a BRISTOL F2B FIGHTER...build inspired by the wartime career of Canadian RFC Major Andrew E. McKeever, DSO, MC and Bar, DFC...31 aerial victories, all while flying the "BRISFIT."  Don't mess with McKeever! Angry

Thanks, Stoney.  Guillows had a series of WW1 models that they manufactured from 1957 until probably into the '70's...all had 18"ws.  The Sopwith Snipe was introduced as part of the series in 1963.  None of the series is available any longer from Guillows.  This was a build from their 1963 plan. 

The roundels are home-made tissue-cals...printed on white tissue...easy to make.

Beautiful! I didn't know Guillows made a Snipe. How did you do your roundels? They look great.

Last build of 2017...from a 1936 Comet plan...a Curtiss Falcon...modified to represent a Curtiss Falcon Mail Plane, ws 16".  Was an interesting build during which I educated myself concerning the evolution of some of the Curtiss in-line engines as well as the associated cooling efforts.  Also was a build in deference to my father's outstanding career in mail delivery.  A salute to you, Pop.
