Beautiful work.

Attached are some snapshots of the MC-72 and its engines. I took these at the museum on Lake Bracciano.

Very nice Andy !
This is the Sebart Kit or a scratch built model ?
Do you have some pics of your contra-rotating system ?

There were a lot of nice planes built for that trophy , I have modeled two of them , the Sopwith Tabloid which won the first race and the Savoia Marchetti S65 which was built and flown but not raced ( cooling problems )

Yep, Schneider racers are coooool! Just an engine and the minimum thats necessary to fly, no need for economy, place for pax or cargo, together with a vintage charme of pioneers

Hey Wormboy, how is your MC.72 coming? Did you manage to compile/recreate a full set of plans for this airplane?

Hi MasterB,

I got most of the way through the MC-72 CAD work but ran out of steam. I only have the Vertical stab to complete.
The learning curve on the program was quite steep in the beginning and while I now have my head around how to use it, the result for the MC-72 design is not that great.

I tried to digitize the individual parts and then peice them together (bottom up design) but this lead to errors in the digitizing process and the parts would never have made a model with the sleek lines of the original. A better solution will be to start with the outer skin and then chop it up into formers (top down design)

Now that I can use the program I will have to start the design again from scratch and TBH I have got other projects I am more interested in at the moment.

I fully expect to come back around to the Schneider racers but have "other fish to fry" so to speak.
