Super nice, Bob.  The lines are so pretty.  And I think the wheels are really well done!

Keep up the great work.  Long live paper!

I enjoyed building this kit, and I hope this build log inspires others to have a go at a paper kit.

Well done, 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.

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

I seem to have missed the end of your project until now Bob. What a Gorgeous aircraft Model you have made! The rigging  is awesome as is the construction. Beautiful work.

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. 

Best regards,

Bob

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

This is awesome Willem!  I've been eyeing that model for a couple of years so I will follow along with popcorn and lots of Mt. Dew.  What a cool plane that will be...
