It does seem to easier to make a banana shaped fuselage than a nice straight fuselage!  But you have made a great start.  I sometimes cut foamboard squares/rectangles as needed to fit at each former/crossmembers stations, just a little short in height to allow the cross members to be placed!  You've done well!!

The two fuse sides have been separated and sanded and I have started the process of turning them into a full fuselage.

This is one of the processes that I find trickiest. Why is it so easy to turn square sticks and frames into a propeller or banana shaped object Sad.

Bob,
Here's the link to the plans of the Avro 625 Avian 24in span on Outerzone: Avro 625 Avian Plan

The subject G-AAYW was one of only two Avro 625 Avian Monoplanes built. Flown in the 1929 King's Cup Race by Captain Neville Stack.

Tom - The Avro is a great looking airplane, anxious to see your work again.

I'm underway also. The Crosby fuselage is 2 inches longer (23 inches) than my fuselage assembly fixture so using the half-shell method. Laminations are mostly done and will assemble the vertical stab today. Wing span is† 18 inches.

Changed my mind on the Fokker Universal to the Avro 625 Avian Monoplane.... Just saw a picture of it and immediately changed my mind.† Just liked the looks of it!

Welcome Tim!  Interesting choice of subject - I love the shape of the wings on that Martinsyde.  Look forward to following your build.

If I have done the resizing correctly then I should be posting pics of the plan and also the CERVIA newsletter so you can see what I am intending.


Hooray, it worked Grin Smiley

I would like to join in with the cookup if I may. Been lurking for years and also had a modelling drought recently due to a health problem. So a cookup will hopefully help to get me building again.

I subscribe to a French modelling newsletter called CERVIA (Centre díetudes et de recherches sur le vol díinterieur díaeromodeles!) produced by Jaques Cartigny, and the recent edition had a peanut plan for the Martinsyde Semiquaver by Roger Aime. So that will be my entry.
Iím a slow builder so donít expect speedy progress.
Tim
