LVG C.VI, 1:24 SCALE, SCRATCHBUILT, 1972.

This one was totally hand-made from plasticard and scrap material; based on scale plans by Maurice Brett and personal study of the Shuttleworth machine. The only commercial items were the wheels. ‘Lozenge’ was painted on tissue covering – a laborious process but we didn’t have all those lovely decal sheets back then! Subsequently destroyed in a house move, the only remnant is the wood laminated and carved airscrew. (Featured in Jan/Feb 1973 Scale Models.)
