Title: What Airplane was it???
Post by: Softscience on January 27, 2018, 02:53:45 AM
Many many years ago. I had this small pocket sized book that had aircraft profiles of important WW I and WW II types.

I vaguely recall seeing a larger WW I type in there that seemed to be drawn with a horizontally split fuselage - i.e. it had a big sideways V-shaped notch in the back half, or otherwise think of top and bottom tail booms. I suspect it was one of those exotic Austro-Hungarian types, or maybe Russian.

Can anybody help out?

Also, do any of you recall seeing the book I'm describing. I've been trying to track down a copy for years now, but can't remember the title or author (I had this book around 1990, when I was about 12 years old).

There were a few with a split fuselage.  The one that stands out the most to me is the SSW R.I.
Cheers,

I can only think of one and that is the SSW Bud has just mentioned. They built 7 of them (R.1-R.7). Lone Modeller is building one in the Scratch Builds section.

That's it!

Leave it to Lonemodeler to build something so wonderfully strange :)
