Title: 1911 curtiss triad A-1
Post by: pietro on July 25, 2015, 06:03:08 PM
Hello everyone, this is my 1/32 scratch-built Triad A-1. Built it for the 100th anniversary of U.S Naval aviation, for a contest at Fort Worden, Washington State in 2011. All the usual ingredients: Evergreen Styrene, brass wire and tubing. Home brewed hand carved prop, resin cast struts with wire centers. Took some short cuts; skipped turn buckles, fuel and coolant hook ups as I built it as a museum model. I have to say Des, I think you did a much better job on yours.   Thanks again

You have done an exceptional job with this build Pietro, it is a slightly different version to the one I built but an excellent looking model, congratulations on completing a somewhat difficult scratch build, you pulled it off beautifully.

Des.

Thank you all so much for the kind words. The Triad was a fun project because of the research and problem solving to complete it. Again, as the best modelers out there, thank you.

That is just breathtaking, Pietro - literally, I saw the first picture and gasped. Amazing work! This would be a fine model in 1/32. Well done!

Sorry but I have only just found this. I am speechless - that is an amazing scratch build which, as has already been suggested, should be in a museum. I really admire this exceptional piece of modelling.
