The Build
I searched a long time on the internet, but they are not a lot of information regarding the "Voisin X lar", so I decided to make a Voisin 10 Ca2 armed with a gun.

  • Hi-Tech has had the good idea to provide "opening" of the cockpit for a version other than that of the box (the bottom part of the picture) I cut amounts are cut into sections "evergreen" 0.25 X 0.75 and glued to the stems T, the edge of the cabin and floor profiles are 0.5 X 0.5. and 1x1.
  • 3 switches on the dashboard, turned on a lathe with one plastic rod (diameter 1mm) and a selector (?) on the left side. The dual throttle. The circular arc is a piece of lead wire crushed with a ruler on a glass plate.
  • The windshield is not beautiful, it is full of bubbles and not transparent at all. Its central part is too short and I think I'll have to cut it to enlarge a little.
  • In front of the windscreen there are two components that can (for real) open and which are partly transparent. So I just removed to replace with a piece of transparent plastic. It's a little too flat now ... I'll stick can be above the two components to put a little thick.
  • I made a fire extinguisher to put next to the cannon (shot plastic)
  • I bought a machine gun Hotchkiss M 1914 models directly from GasPatch, delivered in 4 days. I let you judge the pictures the quality of their work.
  • The gun: evergreen 2.4mm tube.

Thank you.Fishing wire for the wing. The others are plastic stretched. The flat ones are evergreen plastic sheets cut into strips.

Interesting that I was aware of the recoil-less small canon but not the aircraft itself! Amazing work, truly! May I ask for more information on how you made your T handle fire extinguisher? Almost every one of my 1/35th military US vehicles is missing its' Pyrene fire extinguisher.

Thank you! T handle fire extinguisher is two pieces of plastic, one stretched, the other flat glued together. The shape of the flat part is made with the scalpel, the ends rounded with the sandpaper (if I remember correctly ). Regards.
