When it comes to Naval aviation, the last nation which would be expected to pursue such an endeavour would be land-locked Austria, but this neglects the fact that 107 years ago, the Austro-Hungarian Empire had a coastline!

Danijel captured the Austrian Navy's first faltering flutters into the air with his magnificent scratch built model of the Marineapparat Nr.1

Spectacular! Incredible workmanship. The wood grain is beautiful. The chain for the yoke is incredible.

Phantastic work Danijel!
The level of detail and the finish is just mindblowing ... and all made from scratch. Even the photos are first class!
A masterpiece.

Cheers

Bravo Bravo Bravo. I think I've seen nothing like this before. Simply beautiful.
Only 10% of the calendar year 2017 is enough to get a winner for the Model of the Year.

Kind regards,

Thank you again! I was tired of assembling aircraft kits that everybody can have so I decided to go a bit off-road... and I enjoyed every minute of it!!!

Hi Danijel

I don't know how I missed this! For want of better excuses, blame it on all the excitement of vacating the hot seat on Aeroscale - but this is seriously one of the best builds we've ever been lucky enough to have on our Frontpage! Simply incredible!

All the best

Rowan
