1:144 Österreichische Aviatik 30.40

School always has to take first priority over hobbies, but now that summer's here, I thought I might make a thing or two. While I wait on a secret surprise from YOAV, here's an itty bitty Aviatik in the build process.

Tantalising! From what little I know about this plane, the full size wasn't all that big so 1/144 is gonna be teensy. Have you been taking lessons from Texman?

I'm so freaked out I can't even come up with some corny joke about posing models with giant coins. Impressive build mate.

Aleem looks great, great so far. The trick of the giant coin is already well-known, we did not realize that you are building a 1/33!

I've been too busy to build, but I figured I'd start catching up on my backlog of models that require finishing. Today, the little Aviatik is finished, with a full cockpit inside in minute 1/144 scale. Included in the images is a giant coin to scare Rata, as well as shots of its final resting place. Enjoy, and thank you for visiting.

I applaud you!
Being also a miniaturist I appreciate very much your modeling skills.
I am not familiar with this model. I am more familiar with the Aviatik D.I or the C.I.
Any history behind it?

It most certainly is a very interesting bird!



I've copy-pasted some history below, with some of my own thoughts tacked on at the end.

A parasol monoplane derivative of the Aviatik 30.27, the Aviatik 30.40 was powered by a similar 160hp Steyr Le Rhone 11-cylinder rotary engine, and only one prototype was built and flown during the summer of 1918. The Aviatik 30.40 was of wooden construction. The forward fuselage was covered by light metal panels and the remainder of the fuselage was ply covered. The wing had fabric skinning, and steel-tube bracing struts were employed.

I have seen some saying that the Steyr Le Rhone engine produced 150hp instead. Weighing just 586 kg fully loaded, it was also the lightest fighter ever built in Austro Hungary and apparently demonstrated a very promising performance during trials in the summer of 1918. Production was planned for Thone and Fiala, but plans were brought to a halt with the Armistice later that year.

Perhaps our real historians like Don Boose will have something for us?

I find Austro-Hungarian aviation interesting, but have no special expertise in that area, and no specialist resources - just the usual aviation history books. I imagine your info is correct, Aleem, but tomorrow I will take a look.

It sure is a neat looking little airplane, and your model is first rate!

Don
