Laser Printer to Balsa

I read through the whole building tips thread and didn't see one I felt helped me heaps in my first plane build.

Transfering plans from PDF files to balsa via acetone.

Print out the plan/PDF file you downloaded on a laser printer.

Cut out the part from the paper roughly.

Place it upside down on the paper.

Dab a bit of acetone on the paper and press down.

Peel back paper and there will be the shape you need to cut out.




Also did you know that brass rod can be used as a drill bit (chuckle)
