Good Luck with the project! I look forward to hearing the progress, and seeing the finished ship. Well done for undertaking this venture!
This is in honor of my Grandfather who was in the Observation Balloon Corps. in France from the US in 1918. I am also an LTA pilot. Our small farm in Western Pennsylvania is on Welsh Hollow.
It's a great project
It has just been uploaded. You can watch it here. My SSZ puts in a brief appearance about 5 min into the video.
Sorry but I can't do much right now. There was a photographer at the event, but still waiting for him to upload stuff. I can't fly and film at the same time. I took a few stills before flight, which I would be happy to share, but I don't use facebook (yes I am a luddite), so is them some other way to send them?
Yes I would like a copy of the drawings, thanks, even though it is a bnit late to change thinmgs.
I am sorry to see the donation total has hardly moved. I hope you get a late surge.
Thank you, Alan, yes that really is a coincidence, can you share a few photos of your maiden flight and the model on our www.Facebook.com/ProjectZero1916 page, please? We would really like to see this as a flying scale model was something we considered for this project early on! Let me know if you want a digital copy of the general arrangement drawings and blueprints to check your model against.
What a coincidence this is. I have just built a model of a SSZ, and the day after I first fly it, I find this project. Of course, I could have used that blueprint earlier on, rather than guestimating dimensions from photographs.
All the best for this fabulous project from www.ns11.org
Really hope we can make this happen!
