Farman MF1914 1/33
« 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.










soon,
matt77

This will be a very interesting, not to write challenging model. Looking forward to seeing this one take shape.

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.





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.


I therefore modified the base by lengthening the tip

Amazing project! Are there any pics of comparable quality for French build MF. 11’s interiors out there too?

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.
