Bristol Triplane

 Based on the notion of a successor to the Pemberton-Billings Nighthawk, cobbled together from a pair of old
 Airfix Bristol F 2 Bs. Surgery on the wings was remarkably straightforward. Fixing up the cabin is probably going
 the biggest challenge. More over the coming weekend.

Should be interesting although at the moment I am seeing something that vaguely resembles an Amiot. That is a tad scary :)

Me too! That's got to be the most innovative use of an Amiot I've seen yet!

Good eyes in this crowd! It is indeed the Gondola of the venerable Heller Amoit 143. Alas, still
incompelte, though close.

Today's minor progress, the Davis gun...

I'll go ahead and start another thread ( or four ) in the appropriate sub-forums in a few days.
Coming soon - another W. 29 variation, an AEG G. IV nachtjager, and the Vezdekhod Bolshoi.

Hmm, the Bristol Tripe? ???

Wonder if it tastes any better than any other tripe?

Much better, and more interesting looking, though. :)
