Curtiss JN-4C Canuck

This is the 1/48 scale Lindberg Curtiss JN-4 "Jenny" converted to represent a JN-4(Canada) version, more commonly referred to as "Canuck". Major modifications included adding pointed wingtips and ailerons to the lower wings, reshaping the horizontal stabilizers, and adding a new fin and rudder.

The cockpit interior was scratchbuilt and uses plastic seats from two Eduard Nieuport 17s. I used the kit engine, but detailed it with wire and new brass rod exhaust pipes. The spoked wheels and propellor boss are from Fotocut. Blue Rider decals were used to represent JN-4(Canada) Serial C705, B Flight, Canadian Training Squadron, 43 Wing, Benbrook 1917/18.

Moseley's Hanriot HD.2

1/48 scale Eduard Hanriot HD.2 finished out of the box. Markings represent the U.S. Navy HD.2 flown by Ensign George Moseley from Dunkirk in 1918. Model was painted with Testors Model Master Light Sea Gray, with Polly Scale Flat Aluminum for the cowling and forward fuselage. Weathering was done with water color pencils and a drafting pen. Water color pencils were also used to finish the propellor.

Guynemer's Nieuport 17

Eduard's 1/48 Nieuport 17 built up out-of-the-box, using kit decals for Guynemer's aircraft. Testors Model Master Aluminum was used as the color. A drafting pen was used to highlight the control surfaces and other appropriate areas. Wing ribs, edges, etc. were highlighted using a Gunmetal water color pencil.
