Thread: RAF's Finest Biplane? Hawker Fury MkI

Enjoyed meeting up, nice to put faces to names, most enjoyable. I'm sure that it will help with keeping the projects moving, all be it very slowly.

There will be at least three of us who will not be venturing near another D Bryant plan. However credit is due to Mr Bryant for designing what I hope will be a very good sport scale model. Especially given that these days we have CAD and the internet for searching details etc.

Graham, its never too late, just remember small steps a few milestones and you will get there. Just enjoy every step.

Have a safe trip and enjoy Devon.

Just a few bits done, have been side tracked with DIY.

dscn0419.jpg

Servo rails mounted and push rod layouts planned, this is something that I normally leave to the end

Modified F1 for Laser 80

Getting ready for fun and games with fuselage formers.

dscn0423.jpg

Not much building done but now starting to fly regular, really prefer to be outside than being in model shop if the weather is decent.

Hi Danny

Below is the base tissue

dscn0354.jpg

Silk with one or two coats of dope, mixture of 25% shrinking, 25% non-shrinking and 50% thinners.

dscn0360.jpg

Finished and awaiting detail and primer

dscn0369.jpg

dscn0371.jpg

They are all in a draw in the loft/model room and still look good after a year. I will complete the chippy after the fury.

Hope this helps in some small way.

Kind Regards

Hi Danny,

With regards the silk, I used a standard White Silk. 5mm Pongee 100% silk from Homecrafts @ £4.99 per sq m. It was used on the chippy, my first attempt at silk over tisssue. very pleased with result.

Still a long way off with mine, although I have decicded to place the servos just in front of F4 and intend to use wire and carbon rod for push rods.

Throttle servo will fit below servo tray.

Hi Andy,

Just about to consider tank and radio layout before starting to put fusealge sides together. I am considering a similar layout as yours. How do you plan access to tank and throttle servo?

Hi Danny,

Although you are past the left hand sheeting, the photo shows panel lines you have are correct.

I will be powering mine with a laser and had thought of a 100 or 120, as this would suit future models. Both of these engines are out of production at the moment and after correspondence with Jon (Laser), his recommendation is that their 80 would be suitable, running a 15x6 prop. The 120 is a short stroke engine that likes to rev a little.

Slow progress, but at least progress.

dscn0401.jpg

When cutting the ribs I have noticed that the edge being cut is not as square as I would like.

dscn0400.jpg

I normally use several cuts and keep the blade square, but still end up with less than perfect edges.

Not really to much of a problem as these will get sanded square, would be nice to get ab better edge to start with.

As regards to the fidelity of any scale documentation just a few thoughts.

When this model was designed there would be no easy access to photos or drawings that we have today and nobody would have been using CAD.

Today with a few clicks of the mouse we can be inundated with information. Thus if we really want an accurate scale model then the only way is to design it from scratch.

Somtimes its hard to take a step back from all the information and be content with a model that is not 100% scale fidelity, especialy from the surface detail that modern digital cameras provide.

At least with all the information we have a choice on how much or little we add, although not sure if its a bleesing or a curse.

Just like to say thanks to the guys you have taken the time to download the photos from their vist.

Regards

SW

Nice idea with using scraps of balsa as clamps, maygive that a go, likely to use servos in wing aswell.

Hi Gents,

fury_1_sqn_1_by_ws_clave-dpor6g.jpgHopefully this one will get built a little quicker than the chippy, although with two wing's it's asking a lot.

Would be grateful if a mod could make the graphic above the header please.

Late for start of class, at least I've made a start. It will be powered by a laser, not sure what size yet, possibly a 1.20 or 1.55

Will get the tailplane and elevators done next, wings will follow once Danny has done the ground work. But I do need to get some more done on the chippy.

There you go John, hope they are clear enough.

dscn0392.jpg

dscn0394.jpg

Hope to make a start on mine within the next week or two.

I will be using a laser for power, not sure what size. Dick van Mourik wrote an article in RC scale international (2004) and commented that the laser 70 was marginal but found the 120 to be a perfect match.

Just arrived home to find a parcel from France. Just like to say thanks to Ernie for the work done,definitely saved us a lot of work. Appreciate the time taken to get them parceled and posted,, quality of parts excellent

David, hope that your wife is soon on the road to recovery. There is no race, just enjoy the anticipation and learn from the building blogs. I benefited from being part of the "chip shop" but don't tell Danny that i have not finish it yet.

Kind Regards

SW

Well what's it to be Nimrod or Fury? Some of the colour schemes for the Nimrod's look very attractive could be very tempted. My bench still has a chippy on it. With the Fury having two sets of wings it could take a little while.

Chris,

With the amount of planking, I think that Colin is right wink.

Anyway parts now ordered.
