1/3 Scale Pilot "fires" pistol

We’ve recently completed an interesting but challenging bespoke project. Our customer was invited to the Netherlands to fly his Grasshopper in a display to honour the troop drops in Arnhem. He needed a 1/3 scale animated American pilot. The animation was the really interesting part of this project. ...

Red Baron pilot

I had a request recently for a WW1 German pilot in 1/4 scale. I didn't have anything suitable so thought designing a new pilot would be an interesting project. I did some thinking and research and decided that the Red Baron would fit the bill very well. red baron 2.jpg So here he is, ready for actio...

1/4 scale pilot Fernand Lasne

I've recently completed an interesting bespoke project. He is a 1/4 scale pilot, made to represent the French pilot Fernand Lasne.
I've enjoyed the challenge of transforming my "standard" civilian 1/4 scale pilot into Fernand. It's amazing what can be achieved with clothing and paint! ;)

1914 Expedition Flight down the Nile

Interesting article on early aviation. The British Seaplane S80 flew down the Nile on a 3 month expedition 100 years ago. Well deserved credit is of course usually given to pilots in these inspiring expeditions; here there is fascinating background information given on the mechanic, Gus Smith. http:...

Programmable, 19th century, 6,000-piece automaton

Wonderful precision engineering in this automaton boy – hard to believe that he was made so long ago. It seems unbelievable that he was programmable, and that he still works today!

Mid-Air collision - all survive!

Amazing that all the skydivers and both pilots survived this mid-air collision.
Luck was definitely on their side!
