I like the faux radial cowling, complete with rocker arm cover bumps, installed around the Menasco in-line engine. Ah, Hollywood!

Very fine model and setting, however.

Thanks heaps for the positive comments people. Most encouraging.

MS, that 'British fighter' from Dive Bomber has actually got me thinking. Hmm. Let me think about this. Could probably manage the camo colours and could probably adapt the 'radial engine cowling' from Bruno's Hs.123 model........

You just have to watch the scenes with this lil Ryan. The rudder / fin gap is just ridiculous.

Don't mean to hijack your thread but these are also great movie prop planes. John Wayne nad the Flying Tigers.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_Tigers_(film)

Excerpt from above:

While archival combat footage was used in some of the scenes, miniatures were used to portray the early model Curtiss P-40B/C Tomahawks that the Tigers flew on screen. For all ground shots, full-size P-40 mock-ups were used that did no more than taxi. They were propelled by V-8 automobile engines, and the elevators and ailerons were missing from their wings and rear horizontal stabilizers. John Wayne's character arrives at the Tigers' airbase on the one-off Capelis XC-12, a failed 1933 twin-engine transport aircraft that found new life at RKO as a non-flying movie prop.[6] The aircraft was also used in Five Came Back and other films.[7]

The American and Japanese aerial combat footage in Flying Tigers were actually miniatures being pulled along on wires off-screen, created by Republic's special effect experts Howard and Theodore Lydecker. This also included the miniature train and bridge sequence in the film's climax, as well as the miniature of the Capelis air transport seen flying through canyons and eventually crashing into the train. Flying Tigers's special effects were nominated for an Academy Award, but many people voting did not realize the aircraft were miniatures running on wires, thereby passing the film by for the Oscar.
