My 1/72 Scale Planes

Usually I build ships at 1/700 scale, but recently I tryed some aircraft paper models resized at 1/72 scale to fit with my plastic ones.

So far, I have a Dr1 Dreideker and a Sopwith Camel in process. The Dr1 has, and the Camel will have, all the wirings included and the propeller will spin.

Of course, a turning propeller is wrong, because both planes had rotative ENGINES. The propeller was fixed to the engine. But, at this scale... my propeller will spin, thanks.

By the way, I'm not against using wood, wire, plastic or any other material that will improve the presence of the model. The camel's engine, for example, has wire.

Six 1/350 submarines, two sailing ships, nine 1/700 ships plus two in drydock, ten 1/72 airplanes plus four in the assembly line, one space fighter.
