Yep - they enlarge up but only the right    3/5 ths    of the pic - very sharp focus on the blowup too ... great for scrutinizing with the eye ...

Gee, I don't know about the photos Lastwoodsman, I just transfer them from my little camera to my PC. I didn't know they would do that!

Thanks Stoney for the wonderful pics!! Smiley  I see that the pics in Reply #8 to Reply #10 expand really large when you left "click" on them giving one great close up views.  How do you do that?
     I have only one burning ambition in life now  ...  Wink  - to aspire to build a stick and tissue WW1 bipe with pilot and rigging and detailing   Shocked  , and get it to fly rubber powered just like yours,
AND
get good closeup pics in the air !! Cheesy

That is definitely a beauty - I need to learn to do rigging as cleanly as you have here...

Beautiful Pup model...glad to hear she's trimming out well.  Those short nose biplanes always seem to need a bit of ballast in the nose.

Roundels are tissue. I picked a color scheme that did not have a white surround to the roundels.

I made the engine cylinders from flexible soda straws. The Pup is covered in Esaki paper with as little paint as I could get by with.

Despite every attempt to keep the tail light she still needed a LOT of nose weight. I used buck shot under the cowling. Test glides and low power flights in the back yard are nice.

Stoney - that is a great Sopwith Pup model  Smiley  - great brown color scheme, and realistic prop painting - and it looks ready to fly ...  Cheesy   Love your choice of grayish aluminum silver colors for your engine - it makes your engine details really show up well.   Wink  Shocked   A real beauty!   More pics please ... Smiley

Thanks bigrip74. I just shot the prop with rattle can wood color and used artist acrylic tube paint with a wide brush and let her dry.

stoney, she looks great. I love what you've done to the prop to make it look wooden.
