♦ R/C Spitfire Mk IXc in balsa/birch plywood with FPV camera.
The beginning.
It will have servos for: ailerons + elevator + rudder + landing gears.
A FPV camera will also be mounted.
The music is “The Swan” (Le Cygne) by the French composer Camille Saint- -Saëns.
Final version will last at least the duration of the music = 3min:15sec.
Stay tuned! I will upload new releases.

   Work In Progress: 3D model & polystyrene, both in 1/72 scale.

   Designed by the Royal Aircraft Factory at Farnborough, England, the SE5
(Scout Experimental 5) made its first flight on 2 November 1916. The stimulus
for the SE5 design was provided by the availability of the powerful new light-
weight Spanish Hispano-Suiza direct-drive V-8 engine developing 150hp, which
would give the new fighter an excellent performance. Much work on many
aspects of the design, especially the engine installation which changed to
a 200hp Hispano-Suiza geared engine, led to the improved SE5a which first
flew in mid 1917. Meanwhile, SE5s had already entered operational service
with the Royal Flying Corps in France, successfully taking part in the heavy
actions of April 1917. Continuous feedback led to many improvements for the
SE5a production. Early models of the SE5a were fitted with four-bladed pro-
pellers, usually replaced later with standard two-blade units and the weak
under-carriage struts were strengthened. Large scale production was also
undertaken by several other manufacturers but serious delays in getting
these aircraft to the squadrons on the Western Front were caused by nu-
merous failures in the British-built Hispano Suiza engines.
   Wolseley Motors developed the direct-drive 200hp Viper engine, which was
to become a standard power plant for the SE5a; this had a lower thrust line,
which led to a revised front cowling.
Delays in delivering this engine, combined with the problems of the Hispano-
-Suiza engine, led to there being 400 airframes lying idle by the end of 1917.
However, reliable engines of both types did become available soon after, en-
abling the squadrons of the RFC (from 1 April 1918, the new Royal Air Force)
to fight with a superb aircraft; nearly 5,500 of the type were built.
Famous pilots achieved high scoring victories, two of the best known being:
  Capt. Albert Ball, VC and Major E. C. ‘Mick’ Mannock.
The SE5a had a maximum speed of 209km/h (130mph) at 3,048m (10,000ft).
Wing span: 8.10m (26ft 7.4in.)
Length: 6.34m (20ft 11in.)
Height: 2.89m (9ft 6in.)

♦ Tomahawk P-40B, Scale 1/72
One of the most familiar aircraft of the Second World War.
Originally flown in 1938, the first P-40 was actually a modified P-36 using an inline Allison engine instead of the P-36′ bulky radial type.
Now the U.S. Army had a fighter with the performance of a Hurricane or Messerschmitt.
