Resurrecting the distant past...a Fokker design, constructed by the Glenn L. Martin Company, the MO-1 U.S.Navy observation aircraft of 1925.

Model is of 21.5"wingspan, 7"dia. prop, two loops of Sig 3/32" rubber for power...weighs in around 34g...give or take a bit.  Construction is based upon an enlarged Dave Linstrum peanut plan out of Model Builder Magazine, circa 1993.

As I've gotten into the habit of doing...a synopsis of my latest "build"....

Aikoku is the Japanese expression for "patriotism."  During my meager research for a "build theme," I learned that a particular Japanese naval officer by the name of Ōnishi (not to be confused with the person of Admiral Takijirō Ōnishi, "father" of the WW2 kamikaze tactic) purchased a Fairchild 22 in 1933 while serving in the USA as Naval Attache.  He returned to Japan the next year, retired, and then donated the aircraft to the Imperial Japanese Army Academy...hence the kanji characters on my model's fuselage...Aikoku...patriotism.

The model is a discontinued Sig '29er Kit FF-21 which was loosely based on the Fairchild 22 of the early 1930's.  Wingspan is 20" and finished weight is 34.8g.  I'm guilty of making a number of alterations to the model, all very minor and more toward salving my insecurities than anything else.  Wink Smiley

Thanks...Neal

Wrapping up another "one."  Constructed as a gift for my middle son (3) in remembrance of a toy he once possessed (hope he takes better care of this one...he's 43 years old now)...a Comet Models 1936 Boeing P-26A "Peashooter"...dime scale (16"ws).  Weighs in at 26.8g with a single loop motor of 3/16" rubber turning a 5.5"dia. prop.  Aircraft is modeled as a member of the 27th Pursuit Squadron, USAAC...GO ARMY.  Wink

She's a CLASSIC!

Click on photos to enlarge.  Thank you. Smiley

Peanut Ansaldo SVA5 revisited...for a friend.  Always liked the way the aircraft's fuselage "pinches in" at the empennage...like a tiny bird.  Smiley

This hobby is kinda like never finished...just built enough to satisfy our own desires.  Who knows, you may be inspired to add those fiddly bits and finish at a later date.  She looks fantastic!

Hello again, fellow modelers…this effort is entitled “Great Expectations” or here I sit broken hearted, paid to blank and only farted.  Something along those lines.  Had great intentions at the beginning of this build, but my enthusiasm, like other things, tapered at the end.  Life’s demands have taken over and rarely have I just sat things down and walked away (Those occasions have haunted me to this day.). 

Soooo…this is a vintage Sterling Models Ford Tri Motor, kit E12…from my shop shelving where it has languished for  many decades.  Over time, the kit itself has survived something of its own journey, complete with depredations.  The fuselage is scratch-built while the wing and empennage are from kit furnished materials.  Engines are likewise kit supplied vacu-formed parts.  My waning interest has resulted in minimal detail…just enough to get us “out the door.”  Overall wingspan is in the realm of 35”.  Propellers are 4.5”dia…which of course would never suffice to fly her.  Sterling supplied a 7”dia prop for No.2 motor…which is still too small…so all three are just for the sake of appearance.

I apologize…so much more could have been accomplished on my part.  Thank you.

Neal

Thanks, Mike...I usually let a new model "gestate" (to conceive and gradually develop in the mind) for a while before doing the "swim or sink" routine.  Grin  They seem to get stronger as time goes by...as does my fortitude.  Smiley Wink Cheesy
