Hall PH-3 model in 1:72

This sub-forum is for the dedicated solid wood modelers: this is the traditional 'older' method that existed prior to the plastic kit genre. Solid wood carving methods date back to World War One and in the hands of a skilled craftsman a superb model can result. It is the ultimate scratchbuild.

Something Bryan mentioned a while ago gave me the idea to try carving something based on a drawing from the book series "Aircraft of the Fighting Powers". I found volume four in the library and scanned the Hall PH-3, a U.S. Navy flying boat. Here is the beginning. I plan on painting this in 1940s blue camouflage.

Hi Solidmodeler,

there's something just right about carving a flying boat out of wood!

Tasse, I think it is too big for this forum, but I will give it a try later today.

Thanks again, TASSE.
