    Need help choosing next project

    Thanks for the engine link, that would be quite handy to get things moving along quickly. I have built a 1/3 scale Anzani Y motor in the past, and I had envisioned scaling it up for the AVRO. This would make life a lot simpler. There is also this repro: Anzani 3 cylinder engine project But the...

    Ooohhh... Me like! Would be perfect in my AVRO Type F. Chris

    To be honest this is the strongest and most valid point I could ever ask for. Decision made! I actually lost track of how early a craft the Type F was given its "advanced" design for the time. Let's now call this thread AVRO Type F build. Thanks to all Chris

    I had 3 tripanes on my original list, Sopwith was at the top. =)

    I could work from this. It's a basic start. As for the engine, this has me more than a little intrigued: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyRJeZ6s8uM

    Would love to have his contact info. I'd be willing to pay for a set. By all accounts, it was a very nice set of plans. The Airdrome planes are a nice little collection, with emphasis on "little". LOL Chris

    So one more aircraft as come to my attention, and it may have my "bundle of sticks" look and feel plus flyability in one package. I present the Airco DH-2. Small and fun looking, it fits in with both the pioneer and the WWI crowds. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airco_DH.2 That said, it is...

    I mentioned them more for their use as a size and layout reference. You could always scale up as needed. Chris

    Indeed. Which is why I am leaning HEAVILY towards either the Farman "Carte Postale" or the enclosed AVRO Type F. They are more "aircraft" than the other choices, and might actually be enjoyable to take out on a nice day. With the Farman, I could even bring a (daring) friend. As much as I'd like...

    Fun indeed! I like the idea of staying dry in its tiny "cabin". I wonder if it's still too modern for my pioneer aspirations. Perhaps a phase 2 build? I may need to live to 150 to get all my projects completed! ;) C.

    I actually have DXF plans for the WREN, provided by a large scale RC modeler. I may end up with *two* projects. One very early pioneer craft, followed by a more "modern" 20's era craft. There are just too many choices! The book you mentioned is on Abe Books and amazon, so it looks like I will...

    Fokker Spinne might have too many cables even for me! :shock:
