    Here is my first Lohner L as repainted straight from the Christmas Tree decorations, with a couple of extra decals also added.

    Believe it or not for the all in price it came ready rigged. All I did was tweaked it a bit to make it tighter.

    I know what you mean about the loose rigging, because mine is in an 'as-is' condition.

    You sweetened this one up nicely Rob, and painted the struts!
    What did you fill the hole with on the upper wing? I haven't done mine yet.

    That looks fantastic Rob, nice photos. I'm going to have to get some of these little beauties. One as a Macchi L1 and one for my Pola flying boats.

    I normally use green stuff, but because this was a creamy white colour I used the White extra fine milliput this time.

    My Macchi L1, a reverse engineered Lhoner L. This Christmas decoration didn't get put away on the 12th night. I can see if the bad luck superstition is true.

    The rigging is thin wire wrapped around the struts. When it arrives the wire is very slack. like Rob I tightened it up, I just pushed a cocktail stick at the top and bottom and its much better. I found Vallejo ivory was a perfect match for the wings and filled the top wing hole with greenstuff.

    A very neat little repaint there Brian.
    It is incredible what a vast variety of aircraft we are producing with a little injenuity.

    What are the exact scale on the Lohner and the others?

  17. #17

    Default

    The Lohner model is 7.4cm long, correct 1:144 scale is 7.125 cm so its close, the wings on the model are 9cm across when they should be 11.2 cm wide. The wings are a bit small but still bigger than most minis so they fit in fine on a games table. I think the other decorations for sale aren't close to 1:144 at all.

    Here is my second Lohner, still without serial number. Like the others in this thread, this is a Sora model, with some slight modifications (hull repaint).

    Here is my other Lohner; this is Gottfried v. Banfield's L-16. It is a Saro model that I repainted, mostly to change the hull (which Saro decided to do in red and white, though I have not seen any evidence of such a paint job). I also tried to make the tail look more like it does in real life.

    By comparison, here is the unmodified tail. If you look very closely, in the original Sora model the tail is afixed to the rump by a white plastic rectangle; in actuality, the tail was held on by what I believe to be steel tubing. If you compare the two models, you can see that in the L. 16 model I drilled out the white plastic square and painted it black.

    What a great pair of planes, Anthony.

    This thread is whetting my appetite for these planes. Great work, everyone.

    A quick question for all of you with a Lohner L in your hangar... which flying stand (and firing arc) would you consider to be most appropriate? I've got the kite ready to go... but need to do some shopping at Aerodrome Accessories before I can get it off the ground.

    Thanks, in advance.

    Small Bomber - just. 16m wingspan appears to be the divide.

    And meanwhile, here's my effort. L55.

    Nice looking planes! I had to order a couple myself. I hope mine come out half as good.

    that is some really nice work... the lines are so crisp and the little details are popping. Well done, Flash.
