Hi everybody,
 
I made my pilot with my silicone molds, laminating head, hands and shoes with PU resin and filler members and body with soft foam.
For those who are interested, it's detailed on my Nitra3 page (see video) http://www.retroplane.net/nitra3/page5.htm

Batteries are inside the legs to minimize the lead for the center of gravity


The molded pilot


Hair and beard flocked


The pilot completed


More details on my page 2 (and video with the moving pilot)

And I thought piloting such aircraft was a game for young adventurous men.

Hi everyone,

All right, the Bydgoszczanka is now finished, i find the look of this flying machine incredible, especially this glider has existed. It remains only to make flying.

Lovely work, VincentB, looks like it could just trundle along and take off all on its own!

Most excellent work Sir.

As a fellow aeromodeller I appreciate the effort that goes into these creations of yours. They are absolutely outstanding.

If I may humbly suggest inspiration for a future project, how about an aerial vehicle similar to Clément Ader's Ader Éole.

"It flew! It flew" Shop out the towline and no one would know the difference between it and the real thing!

Proper job, VincentB!

I know, I should try to stick to English, but couldn't resist using the words that first came to mind (Sometimes they happen to be French).  The English is in the spoiler.
