2012 Vintage & Old-Timer Build-Off- Lancer 72 from Klarich short kit-a continuation.
The original thread, Lancer 72 from Klarich Custom Kits, at this link
, was started by the Grand Wizard.
Rather than add to it, Iím starting a new link here.
Looking back on this build, I think starting from scratch would have been easier. I would have spaced the ribs a little closer (plans were 3.5 inch) and flared the wing tips upwards.
A modern airfoil may have been considered, but that decision is long past.
The fuselage formers could have used a few extra with maybe a little lofting to get a nicer curve on the bottom section.
An all flying stab might have been better choice
Framing is complete.
I really messed up on the mold for the FG cowl. Didnít use enough wax and mold release, so a very rough and damaged cowl pull off, but will make it work.
In hind sight, a cowl made from balsa blocks would have been a better choice.
