: Delann 10 C (floatplanized)

The Delanne 10 C has a superb shape.

I thought it deserved to be tried out with a float equipment.

I susally paint my models in blue, yellow or red, so that just their aerodynamics and shape are highlighted ;
this time, as an exception, i used orange  ;)

thanks a lot!
the photos are small, that is why you believe it's flawless  ;)
my building skills are extremely basic, and I paint with ... a brush!  :o

Last night, Ericr, you made me dream of tandem wings... :-*
I needed to reveal (to the whole World) that the Delanne 10C2 was a derivative of the Lockheed P-38, yes! Here are the missing links: :-\ ;)

yipes! that yellow one is great, Tophe ! :o

excellent missing link !
P-38 and Delanne united !!!

maybe you could also try out a link between Delanne and ... P-51?  :icon_meditation:

Yes! Thanks! Here are the Delanne ERP-51s: :)

excellent  ;)

it seems quite possible to build them ...

: Tophe October 26, 2013, 11:51:18 AM
Maybe there is too much scratchbuilding to build them though... More easy tandem-winged Mustangs could be like this:

Amusing thought:  this begs to be set up in a diorama, sitting on the water somewhere with the pilot having opened the rear canopy and sitting fishing... ;D

Hmmm...can I get a kit in 1/48?

Nice idea!  :D
I remember the Hasegawa 1/72 kit for the Zero floatplane with a water-diorama (a kind of clear resin base with the main float and a secondary float in water) : it also has a figure of a pilot in swimming suit, hold a ... fishing cane !  ;)
So your idea seems doable, provided you find the ingerdients  :o
I know only of a 1/72 kit for the Delanne, but not 1/48.

Nice idea, that's my opinion too. :-*

The Delanne 10 seems to be available in both 1/72 and 1/144:

Maybe you could try someday a 3-surface tandew-wing layout...

Your Delanne tandem wings continue to inspire me... more and more crazily:

Your tandem wings don't stop inspiring me... ;)

I also made the Delanne)Lysander in blue, but just natural this time (except for the color  ;) ), no floats.
It is so beautiful that it looks like a What Ih, whereas it is jst plainly true  :D
I asked Google pictures "Lysander Delanne model" and got almost nothing, is your one full scratchbuilding? It seems it would be the third Delanne-Lysander model ever made in the World... (and the very first one with civilian colours)

I found a conversion kit, in vacuformed plastic, combined wit a Matchbox Lysander, somewhere on e-bay I think ... Maybe it was by Aeromodel?

Aren't Delanne type tandem winged aircraft meant to have the forward wing larger than the aft one?

Corrected DL-38 (or PR-38?):
