Lubin R-VIII bis 1/33 scale

1930s floatplane from " CardPlane".. Not use to doing aircraft, so it will be interesting to see if I complete this without screwing up or losing interest (something I'm quite good at). Was surprise to see how big a model this will end up being..

Pictures show the cover.. formers glued up on 1mm card.. cockpit details added to floor..

RE: Lubin R-VIII bis 1/33 scale

Hello Peter,

I like these old aircrafts. Especially the floatplanes.

Seems to become a very interesting construction report. Hopefully with a lot of pictures.

Regards from Namibia

Günter

Hello Günter...

Thank you for the comments...

Next set of photos shows some of the frames and decking glued together.. And preparing the two side pieces with parts added..

Hi Peter!

Nice to follow your build! Good start!
I am a great fan of CardPlane, got the same kit some days ago! Please post as many shots as you can!

So long

Bernhard

Hi Bernhard,

Appreciate the comments.. I'm a fan of CardPlane also, and it's because of their choice of rare subjects that you just don't see modeled everyday.. So far no problems.. (tempting fate by saying that at this early stage :D)

Cheers..

seat build

Well I did the seat.. In cutting this out, I would cut out one of the small inter openings.. run a bead of Future around the cut.. let dry, and then cut another opening.. The Future seals and stiffens the part, so that you won't tear the thin pieces seperating the openings. Once they're cut, glue up the pieces.. let dry, and then painted with a flat aluminum.. When dry, I added the cushions after dry brushing them with a lighter leather color for more of a used look.. then a light dry brush of Future over the cushions for less of a dead flat look... Would be nice if I had a seatbelt detail for this aircraft or time period. Will hold off adding the seat until later, in case I come up with something..

Thanks for the tip about stiffening small slots like this with future (or any other brand of diluted acrylic or similar, I guess - I'll probably try gouache varnish, which I'm into at the moment). The seat looks very, very good the way you made it. - L.

PS. Below I attach a couple of generic seat belts, roughly from the period (Avia B434 by Václav Janata, "Ripper", free download). Scale to fit (they are scaled to 1/16 at the moment).

Leif...

Thank you for the comments, and the file.. Just what I needed. I use Future a lot, but if I need a stiffer piece, I'll use CA. Another thing I like about using Future on smaller parts, is that if I dip the part in before cutting.. let dry.. it is less likely to delaminate when cutting..

Cheers..

filling voids

Next set of pictures show where I'm using high quality scrap balsa that I've had lying about to fill in the voids along the bottom of the frame. Do not want to end up with that "starved cow" look, that you will sometime get when covering a large area without some sort of backing. All the balsa was put in leaving about 1/16 pass the frames, to be sanded down flush to the frames when dry.. When sanded to the shape I wanted, I then painted with a blue-grey any place where there would be a joint in the skins.. An added plus, is that I'll end up with a stronger fuselage that will be able to be handled without caving in the sides..

Mixed technique - very good; we tend to forget that, don't we, and drift into purist manners all too often. After all, the strength of paper modelling is much more the ability to print very detailed patterns directly on parts, than any structural advantages per se. - L.

Half the fun of modeling for me, is thinking of new ways of doing something. Plus, anytime I can thin out my scrap pile, it is a winning situation...;-)

Hi Bernhard...

I have no idea where part #37b is located.. Do you see it on any of your pages?? I see it on the instruction sheet, but can not find the part?? Any help would be appreciated...

Hello Peter,

I cannot find it on my pages, too! It seems to be a fault!

Part 37b must be a cylinder without any coloring, so you can construct one by yourself very easily; when you have build Part 37, you can get the size of it.

Cheers,

Bernhard

Hello Bernhard...

Thank you for looking.. At least now I know I did not throw it in the trash by mistake..;-) Have sent off a email asking CardPlane about this, but will probably end up scratch-building them myself...

skinning the fuselage

Showing the parts that will cover the bottom and sides. Last night I covered the bottom, and let dry it overnight. Pleased with the way it looks.. very smooth and strong. Should add, that I am not using the "tabs".. Not needed because of the way I filled in the voids, and should produce a cleaner seam line. (I hope)... :)

Thank you Lech for the help, and the quick reply..


Have added the side and top panel pieces.. So far the fit has been perfect, (at least in my eyes.. :])and any problems I have had, are due to my own making...

gun tub

Next up is adding the gun tub.. glued up the tub sides, and then added the top ring. After cutting out the center, I stuck it back in while I glued the ring to the tub.. helps keep the shape nice and round while drying.. just pop it out when dry, and then insert completed unit into the model.

Hi Peter,

very nice to follow your plane....I sometimes built also planes in scale 1:50 and
it gives me some impressions to see this growing up.... =D>

Thank you Werner for the comments...

Added the rails inside the cockpit, and then the hood that sits in the rails, and slides over the cockpit. The windscreen that sits on this, I will add later.. Photos show the hood in the open & closed position.
