Title: Farman MF1914 1/33
Post by: matt77 on April 14, 2020, 01:54:45 AM
I am drawing the 3d of the S.I.A.Farman MF1914 with Fiat A.10 engine, to obtain the two-dimensional drawings of the paper model.
I want to make the 1/33 scale model.

Wow! Another italian subject!
Your 3D drawings are really accurate.
I saw you choose the one with "solid" fins, instead of the one in picture.
If it's useful, here my build of ten years ago with some original photos:

I know your model, I followed it on "Modellismo Più". I'd like to ask you some information.
Does the tail frame have rectangular section oblique beams? Did you insert one or two tanks between the second seat and the engine? Did you know that in the war period the MF1914 had only the factory coloring?

Thanks for your help

Hi Matt!
There are two Galleries in "Modellismo Più" maybe useful for answer your questions:

https://www.modellismopiu.net/m+gallerie/main.php?g2_itemId=192184&g2_page=2

http://www.modellismopiu.net/m+gallerie/main.php?g2_itemId=212045

Looking at your drawings, it seems that nose is too "rounded" as british Farmans, The Fiat version was more straight in shape.

Hi Matt!
Two, I hope, useful photo.

(https://www.modellismopiu.net/m+gallerie/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=1373393)

In both you may see the single petrol tank behind seats and oil tank before engine.
Another thing: the Fiat A.10 was "inspired" by the Mercedes 160hp that we received with 6 Albatros W.1 that our Navy purchased before the war.
Cheers,
Roberto

Thanks Roby

As I expected.
The petrol tank has a rounded rectangular section, while the oil tank has a circular section.
It remains a mystery how the latter is hooked, while the former will be housed on a pedestal.

Regarding the "nose" issue, I proceeded to redesign it according to your indications.
(https://www.mediafire.com/convkey/49cb/cwwtdyfju73u7fdzg.jpg)

I therefore modified the base by lengthening the tip

Post by: AndRoby67 on April 17, 2020, 05:11:34 AM
Hi Matt,
one idea about oil tank fixing is that the tank was placed between radiators.
They are not "suspended" or sustained by piping, you may see a bracing little strut in first photo.
Maybe oil tank is attached to the bar that is behind radiators, a sort of a more rigid structure
radiator/oil tank/radiator.
This time is really "my two cents".
Great work on nose profile.

That is a truly incredible piece of engineering in paper and card. I would have difficulty making that in plastic, wood and metal but you are producing a mini-masterpiece in paper which IMHO is much more difficult. I am truly gobsmacked!

The idea of the canopy is correct but the paper used is too thick, there are construction lines in the print to be eliminated.
In this realization there are so many inaccuracies that I decided to use it as a test subject.

Big thanks  Bob, Terri, RAGIII and Dan

Small changes and updates:

I moved the rudder controls to the correct position, masking the wrong position with the addition of a sheet of metal, as it appears in the photos.

(https://www.mediafire.com/convkey/9fe1/zqhpn7h3s5tgho3zg.jpg)

I placed the engine on the supports but I had to remove the oil tank. To reposition it I will have to find an alternative solution, as I can no longer dislocate the engine.

SMP has beaten me to the comment that this looks like anything but paper. The engine alone is a mini-masterpiece and I could be easily convinced that it was real metal or at the least well painted plastic. The fit of parts is exceptional and there is no trace of a joint anywhere. Simply folding and shaping this paper leaves me amazed - I cannot find words to properly express my admiration for what you are doing.

Now that the time has come to think about the wings, I realize the remarkable size of the model.
And the lower wings are much smaller than the upper ones.

Marco, this is just a beautiful work of art in every sense.  Thank you for sharing it.  That radiator looks exceptionally realistic, and the additional parts sheet is such a treat.  Love those wings!  The nacelle looks perfectly at home there. ;D

Let me know when this kit goes on sale! ;)

Best regards,

Bob

Echoing Bob.  I want one!

I really like the texture on the wings.  Sitting the cockpit/engine tub on the wing really puts it in perspective and makes it even more impressive.

Keep going, Marco!

After a few days of despondency, I managed to remove the engine, lower the supports, insert the oil tank and reinsert the engine. The few damages caused will be easily repaired.

Now I can deal with the remaining work on the biplane.

Except for the table top, that looks 1:1.  I am out of superlatives.  This is just a pleasure to behold.  Thanks!

Thank you all.
After unsuccessful attempts and consequent uncertainties, I returned to the construction of the horizontal surfaces.

Everything is working pretty well.
Tomorrow I will finish with the missing masts and the rigging

SWEET!  That looks just great, Marco.  I'd like to see all your stuff on Ecards!  These lovely pushers included.

Some inaccuracies in the assembly of the tail pylons, but I think the result is acceptable.

Amazing work with excellent results. Something about the paper thickness that adds realism on these pushers that is very hard to achieve with resin or plastic.

This model is oustanding in all respects Marco.  That last photo looks like a real 1:1 aircraft in flight, with a beautiful background!  This one is a real pleasure to watch develop. :D
