Murph's Models N3N Canary

I've been working on the N3N for a while and thought that starting a thread on this model might be interesting to you and motivating for me to get going and finish it.

The airplane has nice lines and goes together well, but I would have had a very hard time with the float (and the sponsons, for that matter) had I not read papermate's beta build thread Murph's Model beta build - Naval Aircraft Factory N3N Canary aka "Yellow Peril", 1/34 with pictures and suggestions for the float. I reviewed that thread after my first failed attempt. The second was a little better. Here is my third try on the float and supports.

As always, I am trying to improve my skills while learning more about this historic aircraft.

Great start. I have this on my must-do list, so I will definitely be following your build.

C9B, great job. Like me, if you do three, I'm certain that you'll get better and better. I built more than three before posting the pictures, shshsh, don't let the others know!! Practice makes perfect, they say.

Thanks for the encouraging words, everyone.

I try to build planes with which I have a more personal connection. My uncle made many a training flight in the yellow peril during World War II. He did not (as far as I know) fly the floatplane, but I appreciate the beautiful design.

The fuselage went together very well. I copied papermate's approach to covering the wing spar carrythrough with something resembling a cockpit. The pictures will show the problem I had sealing the wingtips. The tabs are plainly visible. I'll learn from that. No problem with the fit or any of the parts. I will say that the geometry of the wing spar structure is complex, but simple to build. I would say it is brilliant, but I wouldn't want the designer to get a swollen head about it.

This plane is very nicely shot in 'Dive Bomber" film from 1941,so Devastator and few other planes.

Good work on fuselage fit and wings.Even better work on float.Good luck.

Upper wing and engine are complete. I built the exhaust pipe but haven't attached it yet. Sponsons are almost done. Just about time to put it all together.
