Superb looking plane Andi, and from my favourite era for aircraft. I made a free flight Morane Saulnier type L many years ago, balsa and tissue with a CO2 motor. Nowhere near your level of detail but it flew quite well. A bit too well actually, I last saw it heading off intrepidly over some woodlan...

Andi, is that a kit there? The idea of a French monoplane appeals to me. Yes, it started out as a kit - supposedly? It's the "Special Hobby's" kit of the "Morane Saulnier type N" the genetic forefather of the notorious Fokker Eindecker of "the Fokker scourge" fame. As ...

Cracking little job Juergen, it translates well both physically and as an idea.

What a crying shame - all that effort!

Excellent modelling - my kind of build, and my kind of thread. Thanks for taking the time to set this out for us all: it inspires me at least, to trying that little bit harder to focus and produce something in emulation.

Marvellous.

A well done from me too. It has everything it needs, character, charm, and a degree of necessary cuteness [a much maligned and overlooked property to my mind].

A great first steamer - you seem to be quite adept at this sort of thing :wink:
