Re: 'Not' Crimson Skies planes available on Shapeways

I've just got my latest prints back from Shapeways including several based on concepts from the guys here: The Loup Garou is lovely but it must be a Hughes stealth project, there's no way that it was designed for Quebec. The Bellanca trimotor racer is probably more like what a Quebec aircraft design...

Re: 'Not' Crimson Skies planes available on Shapeways

I stumbled across the Twin P-40 at wikipedia.

Here's my interpretation: http://shpws.me/LXtt

I'm calling it the 'Twister' because it's American and looks like the Westland Whirlwind.

Re: 'Not' Crimson Skies planes available on Shapeways

As usual, great job Nick. Thanks ! Me 509 and Me 309 are both interesting. BMW Schnellbomber II less so as it's not got a *proper* engine. He P.1076 is a maybe but apart from the forward swept wings it looks pretty conventional. Technically it would be a nightmare to maintain. The Focke-Wulf Fw 187...

Re: 'Not' Crimson Skies planes available on Shapeways

Well done sir! Thanks ! You have an amazing production rate, it blows me away. It varies, the 404 took me three days as it's poorly documented and a very unusual/complex shape that took me several goes to model satisfactorily whilst the Stopa-Caproni is quite simple and I had some clear plans and p...

Re: 'Not' Crimson Skies planes available on Shapeways

Now available on Shapeways: http://shpws.me/LS2m

It's quite a big aircraft and it's unconventional shape means that it needs quite a lot of material to print so it's more expensive than my other designs :(

Re: 'Not' Crimson Skies planes available on Shapeways

I could have a try at the Stipa-Caproni, It would probably be a superb *ships boat* for zeps carrying personnel and light freight but an awful combat aircraft. As it's also relatively quiet It might also make a useful tool for *cutting out* attacks on enemy zeps. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stipa-...

Re: Bombardier CB-7 Loup Garou (Werewolf)

My take: The Loup Garou is a Hughes *skunk* project that was designed by an (English speaking) Quebec ex-pat and was intended to combine the advanced aerodynamics of the Bloodhawk with more workaday components to be easier to maintain in the field. Hughes were unwilling to dilute their own hi-tech i...

Re: 'Not' Crimson Skies planes available on Shapeways

Nick, I'm gonna tell my wife that it is YOUR fault if I buy new CS planes! There's plenty more expensive and less wife friendly hobbies a man can have… I mean, there is no way I can't buy something to represent the S.I.P.A 112! :D Just need to wait for Grant to get back here from wherever the real ...
