This page shows some pics of my alternative scale models, as soon as of some models from my collaborators
The models were organized following the authorship criteria. You can access pics showing the models from various different angles, what provides a more detailed view of the models structure and characteristics.
The next pages provide more information on each different model.
My own models
My models are in a 1:32 scale factor. They have mobile pieces and were made with the online tutorial techniques.
The pics are of the following aircrafts: A P-40 Curtis, a P-51 Mustang, A Seafire Spitfire (modified to land at water), a Hawker Hurricane, two Fokker Wulf FW-190 e one twin-engine Beach Bee.
Each one of my models comes with comments on the used techniques and materials employed during construction.
There are too some notes on the construction history of each scale model.
Adolfo Caetano's Scale Models
The Adolfo Caetano's mockups are at 1:100 scale factor. Despite the little scale, their models are very detailed and of course, they're very delicate.
The pics shows the following aircrafts: One A-4, one Mig-15, a Spad XIII, and three WWI fokker models. Among the German models you will see the Red Baron Fokker Dr. I.
In their page you will see comments on some models details and notes on the used materials during assemblage.
Adolfo Caetano's Scale Ships
These ships look wooden, but they were made with cardboard.
In that page you will see pics of the "Santa Maria" caravel and of a roman trireme.
You will see either some info on the construction techniques and materials Adolfo used in these models.
Albino Luiz Gineste's Scale Ships
These model ships are very detailed and realistic ones and were made based only on internet pictures. He never used plans to make these ships.
The pictures show a portuary tug and the Canadian ship Samuel Risley.
You will see some info on the construction techniques and materials used by Albino to make these models. His models are made entirely from scratch...
Ilson Carlos P. Júnior's aircrafts
Ilson has made some trow-to-fly models.
There are here pics of a A-4, a Antonov 124, a Bufalo, a F-4E, a Su-47, a TU-160 and a T-25.
What is specially interesting in his work is the amount of research job required to make more realistic models, but still capable to fly.
Mauro Casagrande's scale aircrafts
Mauro Casagrande has made a F-4U Corsair using the tutorial lessons and a schematic drawing, boyh of them supplied by this website.
José Roberto Mendes's wooden aircrafts
The José Roberto Mendes's wooden aircrafts shows very well the classic world war two aircrafts armonic lines and beatifull style.
There are pics of a B17, a B24, a DC3 and a P-38.
The aircrafts were made at different scales from 1:40 to 1:60.
