I agree with Juan - only this could be 1/24 scale. Simply incredible what you have done - I would never have thought that such detail was possible.

Thank you Giuseppe,  Antonio, Pedja, Juan and Stephen!
With your overwhelming comments and my own feeling about the effort I spend here, I think this is may be the best modeldownscaled original I have created so far.

Cheers,
Frank

This is one of the best models I have ever seen. Your skills are really masterful. You must be an old monk, living on a mountain in Tibet.

With all the attention to detail you have done, I would be hard-pressed to believe that this kit isn't 1/32, a testament to your abilities.

Most certainly agree with this statement.

Bristol F.2B Fighter, Eduard 1/48, Update 25.2.2019 Mishap and landing gear
« Reply #141 on: February 26, 2019, 08:15:06 AM »
Thank you very much, my friends!

With comments like this
This is one of the best models I have ever seen.
I really need a read face smiley! You made my day, thanks!


Mishap and landing gear


The next thing ...


... was a mishap!
During mounting of the second exhaust I had some trouble and the engine loosens and was fallen in. A rattling noise was the result! >:( :o

Was able to open the ring and radiator without damage:



The engine.



The last colored PE part from kit - a nice belt mounted to Scarff-ring.



I painted the fuselage part of the ring also grey and mounted the Scarff-ring finally.



The gear is mounted, cross rigged, compressor got a 0.2mm copper pipe to fuselage. The front double wires are done too. 



The aft double terminal is mounted on the aft gear strut.



Bomb racks mounted.



Protective bows are a bit thick in kit and I want to have it more robust for transport, so I made brass ones. Tinned, ...



... painted and mounted.



Exhaust and engine mounted.



Added a piece of sprue between engine halfs to avoid such accident in future.



Need to do wheels, tailskid, ailerons, control wires ...
and the exhibition/competition comes closer in huge steps! ENORMOUS PRESSURE!

Cheers,
Frank

Frank, a wonderful model from start to the (near) finish and great news that you managed to fix the little mishap regarding the engine. It will be a star in FFB, finished or unfinished, so there’s no need to rush or to feel pressure!
See you soon!

Making models = Mishaps

It’s a physical law  ???

Looks great though.

Frank 99% of modeling is knowing how to fix mistakes.

Your efforts are superb and it will work out.

Thank you Andreas, Guy, Stephen, Lance and Ryan fro your motivating words!

It will be a star in FFB, finished or unfinished, so there’s no need to rush or to feel pressure!
Ha, I don't think that the competition jury will like a unfinished model ;D But my plan was to put it there.
I still have the weekend, so it should be possible.

Don't be afraid, your 1/32 scale is a different class :-*
See you soon!

Not only that, a mistake or a broken part was often the starting point of something to scratch, which looks much better on the end.

The front is closed now ;)

Bristol F.2B Fighter, Eduard 1/48, Update 2.3.2019 Synchronisation gear
« Reply #148 on: March 03, 2019, 09:47:59 AM »
Synchronisation gear


For the Vickers in front of the cockpit there is a synchronisation needed to be able to fire through the arc of the air screw. So a gear is needed, and a gear needs cogwheels. A friend send me some, but the letter was lost, not arrived within two weeks >:(

So I went with plan B: 0,23mm nickel silver soldered on brass, turned on lathe and mounted on the dividing head. I had no special cutter for this task but found a workaround with another cutter. Every  10° milled.



Here also the second cogwheel on a 0.6mm nickel silver axle after chemical brown.
No real cogwheels, but enough for optical illusion. Pitty, that the dividing head has bad concentricity!



My cogwheel compared to kit one. The one on the airscrew is nice, but the second one is part 5 ?! Not a cogwheel at all!
Below the kit gear which I had to remove for mounting the brass radiator.



Milled the sync gear box from brass. the main part square, aft round, front hexagonal. Drilled hole for axle, drilled a 0.6mm hole and soldered brass pipe in for the pipes (glowed 0.2mm copper). Below a 0.8mm brass nut.



Here you see the described parts as original. My small one is left of the original.



A problem comes up: the small cogwheel was to big, so I made a smaller one. Together with the gear.



After mounting I put the pipes around the radiator and into the fuselage (drilled 0,23mm holes).



Final view on the new sync gear.



Tailskid from kit, painted with brush. The PC10 was painted in strips to simulate linen winding. A securing rope made from 0.1mm nickel silver around the rubber added.



Mounted with struts from kit. Seems to be able to hold the model, even if the single struts are very filigree.



A little progress, the control wires will be the next task.

Cheers,
Frank

Just hen I thought you could not blow my mind any further, you find another way to amaze me.  Outstanding at any scale, but your work at this scale just blows me away.
