1/16th scale DRI
by Ken Foran

Everything in brass I fabricated and soldered together, no glue. The engine is a Model Expo Le Rhone borrowed from my Nieuport 28 that you have shots of already. Things to note are each gun has a round in the chamber, the breech opens and the cocking lever pivots. The throttle lever also pivots.The compass also pivots in it's gimbals. The wheels have 36 spokes per the original. The joystick and rudder pedal will eventually control all surfaces. The seat is hand formed out of aluminum like the original. The engine is all fabricated metal, brass and copper. The engine cowl is hammered out of 3003-0 aluminum.
