F-9F Cougar - balsa (and a little foam) scratch build ***maiden video***
Gonna let the old thread
fade and start posting the progress here.
Please feel free to jump in with ideas and suggestions.
Spent last Sunday afternoon trying put together a built up stab assy.
I wanted the elev servos in the stab. Very tight on this size model. I just couldn't figure out a way to make the stab as strong as I wanted with the servo taking up the area the spar should run through.
So I gave up on that and hot wired some stabs out of foam yesterday.
Got 'em all slicked down and sheeted in 1/16 balsa. Glue is drying as I type.
Also been detailing the wings.
Flaps & ails cut out and dressed. Starting on the servo hatches. Hoping to have the top skins on before we head out to the in-laws tomorrow morning for Thanksgiving. I can bring the wing panels with me and do some sanding. Shaping the LE is one of my fav parts of the build.
