Engine rocker box's radiator and fuel filler filler cap add to the look up front.Wind driven pump [ leggo part ] Vickers gun, Aldis gun sight and wind screen under center section. Pilot is my original 1960's Action man.

The upper wing was originaly held on by saddle clamps and 8 screws and took an age to put on,however a couple of years ago modified it with hooks holding the leading edge to the cabain and two wing bolts up through plate at the the rear.

Really handy photos John.

I'm thinking of making a louvred aluminium front panel for mine with some mesh behind it, should allow plenty of air through.

Cymaz, I recon your giant version would look good as a two seater,something like a DH4. Would have no problem taking two action men aloft.smiley

Hope I’m not hijacking the thread. Three of us have been hard at work building a Giant Mannock

Myself and the other builders have been busy. Work has continued on the wings and tail surfaces. The engine and it’s reduction gear has been built and tested.

I had a Giant for many years until I sold it, had a quadra 32cc that gave it a very realistic performance. Bodo was a true master at model design as his designs are always good flying aircraft and easy to build.
