I just came across these in my various folders - what I took at the LMA show.

Very nice, did you note what they were constructed with? perhaps Depron.

Some of them were built by local man Peter Iliffe, he uses balsa and tissue in the traditional way. His models fly well on a calm day, I've seen his recent German WW1 floatplane (Hansa Brandenburg ?) take off from damp grass; it has also flown off water

WWL is correct, all trad builds covered with Japanese tissue and sprayed / painted with acrylics. Those models of prototypes having rotary engines had a simulated rotary that turns when the electric motor runs - it uses some sort of friction coupling so the dummy motor turns at a realistic speed.

OH and the cardboard box the model stands on is for transportation, again made by Peter and a work of art in itself.
