Bruno! I just got my last order from you, all I can say is great work! Looks like I am going to have to start my pre-war CV-2 USS LEXINGTON, thanks to you and the aircraft you created.
Great work and thanks again!

Hello everyone,
The design is ready but needs to be tested. With so many pieces (and I already noticed I forgot one) it will take some time to cut out and glue.
At least someone guessed it correctly. it's the Felixstowe F2A (in its late version, with flat fuselage).

Hello Fahd,
A long time ago I tried to find some 3-view (or something similar) of GSE but never really found something to work with. So if somebody has got that info...

Bruno

Here are the first pictures of the test build. (sorry for the bad quality of some pictures)
The model was printed on a laser printer with a high contrast.
The fuselage came together quite smoothly (yeepie). Only slight adjustments are required.

Thanks Péricles.
I just did a rapid count: 156 pieces in total (+1 that I forgot)
And I did not even design a cockpit (yet?)
This is probably the most elaborate model I did until now.
So I have to beg for a little bit of patience before I can make it available.

Thanks, Don
It really is a neat plane

I did not progress much since yesterday evening. Here are some pictures of the tail construction.
and yes, I designed the rigging attachments for the steering surfaces. it's extra work that hopefully will turn out ok.
