Hi everyone,
It was a moment that I had not posted, but I take a look at the forum almost every day, I like so much to see your crazy creations.
So lets me show you my last construction, a Polish glider 1925. Scale 1/4, wingspan 2.56m, the machine will fly of course with RC. Ok it's not in the pure Steampunk style, but it's still an unusual flying machine from early last century. I hope it will be interesting for you ... The shape is pretty unlikely cross between a whale and a penny-farthing

All the details of the construction here

Here's the full size


and my model, still some months of work to finish it ...

Anyone that can hand build 2 spoked wheels from scratch for a model gets my interest piqued!

Watching. ( I just kinda wish these builds were separate threads, but that's just me)

Hi everyone
Some photos of the progress of the Bydgoszczanka

Steel cables 1mm


The pod with 3 servos


The steering wheel and pedals are connected to the servos


The chair made with rattan


The pod is brazed on the fuselage and all is paint La nacelle est brasée sur le fuselage et l'ensemble est peint


It's starting to look like ....... a strange machine, and that it really existed, thanks to these pioneers that aviation is what it is today.


The control cables are connected to the tail


Weathering to give life to the model


Video to see the stick and tail move

I'm really enjoying watching these flying machines take shape.  They're fantastic.
