Title: Modelik 1/33 Hanriot HD-1 in Italian Service
Post by: rhallinger on July 14, 2021, 06:26:46 AM
Hello paper model fans!  Since Dan is sharing his Albatros D.V paper kit build right now, I have decided to do a build log for this Hanriot HD-1 to see if we can generate more interest in paper models of WWI aircraft.  Spoiler alert!  The kit is finished, but I took photos along the way so I will share the process in hopes of encouraging others.  These kits are really inexpensive, and no painting necessary, plus you can get some types that are just not available in plastic, so why not take the plunge?

Here is the kit:

We'll get started with the engine:

The copper tubes are styrene rod bent and formed to shape.

Most of the engine will be hidden behind the circular cowling, so I am not adding any further detail, as it will be mostly invisible anyway.  I tend to be more of a "look and feel" modeler rather than a super-detail guy, although I appreciate the effort of the super-detailers in our midst.  I'm just lazy. ;D

More to follow!

Best,

Bob

Nice, Bob.  Who cares if it's done?  The pictures tell the story.  I like your point about oddball subjects available in paper too.  The other thing is that when done carefully, these really do stack up well to even WNW models and since they are kaput... ::) ;D

Looking forward to the rest of your pictures...Fellow Paper Nut,
Dan

Thanks Dan!

Some basic bulkheads and beginning the cowling:

Upon gluing the successive rings, the inside was coated with AC to provide some rigidity.  Then, auto primer, sand, repeat until a smooth surface is obtained, then airbrush with silver acrylic paint, and you end up with something like this:

That's all for today.  On to the fuselage and tail feathers next.

Thanks Gene!  Yes, indeed it was CA I used.  Fingers don't always type what I want them to. ;) 

Here's a little more progress on the fuselage and tail planes.  Pretty much OTB ("out of the booklet") for these parts:

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51093015239_98284b1811_k.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2kQV4nR)1/33 Hanriot (https://flic.kr/p/2kQV4nR) by Robert  Hallinger (https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/), on Flickr

As you can see, I backed the bulkheads with 1/32 balsa as an does, for added strength.  I also added a balsa spacer on the cockpit floor to support the lower wings when they are attached.  The kit did not provide any bulkheads for the rear portion of the fuselage aft of the cockpit, so I added my own.  I also had a slight problem with the kit turtledeck not fitting as well as I liked (probably my construction errors catching up with me), so I carefully removed the part and copied a new one at the office copier, resizing it to fit better.  We'll see how that turns out.  More soon.

Best regards,

Bob

Post by: rhallinger on July 16, 2021, 11:22:18 PM
Thanks Rick!  This model is relatively well-designed, although like most paper kits it requires some careful and deliberate forethought on construction, as the instructions are not in English, and not likely all that helpful even if they were. ;)  The fit is pretty good, and the turtledeck issue was of my own making, moving too quickly as I sometimes do.  Repeated test fitting and precision are required before gluing--no shortcuts or haste! 

 More work on the fuselage and tail:

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51083260273_6001bb7331_k.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2kQ44yM)Hanriot under construction (https://flic.kr/p/2kQ44yM) by Robert  Hallinger (https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/), on Flickr

The rudder required a wire rod to help secure it to the fuselage frame.  You'll see the full assemblage in later progress.

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51113315404_96b97022a7_k.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2kSH6UG)1/33 paper Hanriot HD-1, 4/13/21 (https://flic.kr/p/2kSH6UG) by Robert  Hallinger (https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/), on Flickr

Here is the fuselage closed up and the two segments joined, along with the lower wings folded and attached.  I lightly embossed the ribs from the underside of the wings before folding.  The fuselage joint line is a bit dark and heavy, but I am not going to worry about it.  I suppose I could find some matching paint to mute it if it bothers me later.

You can also see the new turtledeck and headrest fairing in place.  I think they look pretty good.  In this last shot, you can see the somewhat fiddley fuselage longerons that support the rudder and enclose the tail skid.  I backed these with additional card stock so they would be less likely to bend or tear.

That's it for today.  More soon.

Thanks Alexis and Guiseppe!  I have really enjoyed this kit.  Always wanted an HD-1, but none in 1/32 plastic (yet).  This is a nice alternative.

Here is the kit tailskid.  I added a brass wire to secure it to the rear fuselage bulkhead, as there is no other attachment point.  I just noticed there are some metal fittings on the skid that I should probably go back and paint. ;)

The hanging thread is EZ-Line for rigging the tail.  I use elastic thread almost exclusively for paper models, as their light weight construction would not tolerate the heavier tension of monofilament (at least it seems so to me).  The camera really shows the rough spots of paper construction, but with a little pencil or marker touch up it looks pretty good to the Mk.I eyeball from a foot or two away. ;D

Here is the fin and rudder added and rigged.  I used Evergreen strip for the stabilizer struts, because it looks a little crisper than the paper ones:

Thanks to all for the words of encouragement.  Time for another update.

Here is the engine ensconced in the cowling:

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51114703972_2433f65520_k.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2kSQdFw)1/33 paper Hanriot HD-1, 4/14/21 (https://flic.kr/p/2kSQdFw) by Robert  Hallinger (https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/), on Flickr

Although the paper strips of the cowling leave a large vent on the bottom, photos of the prototype show two other vents below and offset from the main vent.  These would have been very difficult to actually cut from the paper, so I decided to just add a sleight-of-hand representation after the cowling was finished and painted by using black decal stock cut to shape (the tool & die punch makes nice rounded ends!) applied in the correct position.  I think it is a reasonably effective representation.

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51114704002_f146a86e2f_k.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2kSQdG3)1/33 paper Hanriot HD-1, 4/14/21 (https://flic.kr/p/2kSQdG3) by Robert  Hallinger (https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/), on Flickr

The cowling/engine was glued in place on the firewall, and I added some additional detail to the front end of the fuselage.

The air intake tubes are Evergreen styrene tube reamed out with an appropriate drill bit to a thinner wall appearance, then painted before being glued in place.  I also used extra colored stock from the kit to cut out and add access hatches in the correct location.  I just left the printed ones there, although they are not in the right place as far as I can tell. 

That's it for now.  More soon!

Cheers,

Bob

Time for wings for this bird!  Here is the top wing, ribs embossed from the back and folded over.  This wing is a bit tricky due to the significant dihedral apparent on the HD-1.  I scored the bottom lightly on the inside to allow a fold, then split the centerline of the top wing to allow the flex and slight overlap necessary to accommodate the angle upwards on both sides of center.  Although I don't have photos of it, the balsa wing spar was scored and cracked to form the approximate dihedral angle before it was glued to the inside bottom of the top wing.  It came out pretty well I think, although installed photos show that it could probably have taken a bit more angle.  Nonetheless, it still looks pretty good and approximates the appearance of an HD-1. ​

. . . and rested in place just for fun.  I really like the colors of the Italian markings.

I'm working on the wheels also, along with the struts.  The wheels are the kit covers copied onto paper, slit to allow a slight conical fold, and appropriately-sized rubber O-rings glued to balsa circles.  The conical covers are then glued to both sides of the balsa wheel core.  The struts are the paper card parts from the kit.

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51123156246_4ae403f747_k.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2kTzxfo)1/33 paper Hanriot HD-1, 4/17/21 (https://flic.kr/p/2kTzxfo) by Robert  Hallinger (https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/), on Flickr

Here she is with the top wing in place and the outer cabanes installed.  The interplane struts have a wire in the center which provides rigidity and a positive attachment point to both wings.  The cabanes are just glued in place at the appropriate spots.  As you can see from this front shot, the interplane struts on the HD-1 were angled both outward and forward quite a bit.  Gives it a fast and sort of rakish look! ;D

Thanks Dan!  The Hanriot is a very sleek and lovely aircraft, and rather petite.  I would love to see a Marco repaint of this one--so many great schemes, both Italian and Belgian.  A Marco repaint would look like a superbly finished WNW build.  We can only wish!

Marco (Matt77) is a fine artist who has done "repaints" of paper kits designed by others (digital computer graphics, i believe), and they are gorgeous.  See here:

These are beautiful paper kit renderings, and we hope that Marco will continue to make new models available.  He is like the Wingnut Wings of WWI  paper models.  Anything i missed Dan?

The rigging is EZ-Line elastic thread affixed to Von Buckles eyelets, all attached with CA.

The Vickers is a plastic spare from some kit.  I do not have Dan's patience or perseverance to make these out of paper when I have a plastic spare. ;)

The landing gear struts proved to be a modest stumbling block, as the printed kit struts were far to long--which I noticed after I had glued them together with wire inserts.  Fortunately, I had copies of those parts, and made cut down new parts from the silver color stock supplied by the kit for fixes and touch ups.  The new struts fit much better and the aircraft sits properly on them.

Next up is the prop, again a plastic spare, and she will be done.  More pics soon.

Excellent work, Bob.  The landing gear looks fantastic.  Good tip.
Those guns are a real pain...a plastic substitute is in order at times!  ::)

Thanks Alexis, Dan and Rick!  I'll post the final pics soon.  I am very pleased with how this came together, and I finally have a 1/32 (almost!) Hanriot!  I really like the Italian colors.  Now, if Marco could only repaint this into the Belgian schemes . . .   ;D

Cheers,

The 1/33 Hanriot HD-1 in Italian service is complete.  I added a plastic prop appropriately painted to complete this paper model.  This model represents a Macchi license-built HD-1, No. 6234, of the 76th Squadriglia, based at Istrana in December 1917 and piloted by Georgio Michetti.  A lovely aircraft.

I enjoyed building this kit, and I hope this build log inspires others to have a go at a paper kit.  They are inexpensive, require minimal tools, and build up into very nice replicas.  There are some free downloads from Matt77 (Marco) under the paper models section of this forum, or you can purchase a booklet kit easily online.  Dan (NinetythirdLiberator) has some helpful YouTube video tutorials to provide guidance and tips.  Give it a try!

Best regards,

Bob

Thanks Alexis, Dan and Gene!  Next up?  Having just finished up a heritage build of a 1/48 Otaki P-40E Aleutian Tiger (a kit I've wanted to build for 50 years!), I am returning to WWI plastic by attempting to convert a WNW DH.9A Ninack into a DH-4 Liberty Plane of the USAS 50th Aero Squadron, representing the Medal of Honor mission to relieve the "Lost Battalion."  I really like the paint scheme and markings of this aircraft.

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51361003388_28a12687e0_k.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2mfAyVb)DH4 Liberty Plane (https://flic.kr/p/2mfAyVb) by Robert  Hallinger (https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/), on Flickr

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51361793460_81469b000c_k.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2mfEBM7)DH4 Liberty Plane (https://flic.kr/p/2mfEBM7) by Robert  Hallinger (https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/), on Flickr

I have the Windsock Datafile on the DH-4 Liberty Plane, and the issue of Over the Front above has lots of good closeup photos, so I have enough information.  This conversion will require significant surgery on the fuselage, cowling and interior of the Ninack, and most likely some vacuforming (new cowling and parts of top deck).  I'm looking forward to the challenge.  It will also require a good deal of forethought and problem-solving.  I realize that the wings of the Ninack are slightly longer than those of the DH-4, and the chord as well, but I am not going  to bother about that, as I am going for the look and feel rather than precision.  Someone suggested that I could use the wings from the WNW DH.9 kit, which apparently are the same as the DH-4, but I can't see sacrificing a second $200+ dollar OOP kit for the sake of a few centimeters on wings this long already.  Close enough will have to do. 

After the DH-4, the current plan is to return to paper with the Igualada paper kit of Frank Luke's SPAD XIII no.26.  This is essentially the same kit Dan recently completed in a French scheme, and his accolades for the kit have moved it to the top of my paper kit list. 

Thanks for all of your support on the Hanriot build.  Much appreciated.  Take care everyone.

Best regards,

Bob

First time I take a peek in Paper and Card models.

What a beautiful model this has become Bob!

I made myself promise that I would stick to the V/1500, but I have succumbed.

I ordered the Vickers Vimy from Modelik....  8)

That's wonderful Willem!  I have not yet tackled a paper kit of a large bomber, although I have a few in my paper stash (Ilya Muromets, Caproni Ca.3, Gotha G.IV).  I'm practicing on smaller craft first!  I wish you well on the Vimy.

Hello Willem!

Nice choice!  Love the Vimy.  Please do let us know and post as you start...these things are addictive and really, really fun.

The goodies have arrived! I ordered it on the 12th and it was delivered on the 16th, that's really fast!

I also ordered the extra's. At first I thought it was laser-cut wood (silly me!), but it is cardboard.

I won't be starting it anytime soon though, the HP V/1500 takes up all of my time and taking up a second project would slow it down even more.

I'll be following you guys building these fantastic paper and card models closely though!

Cheers,

Willem
