Five Piece Construction

Bobdaeronort, How do you make the folds in your FFF sheet? I had trouble getting it to bend properly. Finally had to cut the pieces at the fold line and reglue them with hot melt.

I use Dow and Owens Corning FFF too.
I apply shipping tape to the backside of the score fold line then score the foam along the line indicted on the flip side. The foam should now bend at the score line.
With the plane assembled and properly aligned and fitted I apply a bead of hot glue down the open groove at the score line to reinforce the fold.
You can also refer to my You-tube build vid (link on this forum) of my F-14 Tomcat which goes together similarly.
Hope this helps.
P.S. : I will be posting my new "Five Easy Piece" F-22 v2 with 3DD fuselage soon. So Stay Tuned.

went to the office store today to get my 30x40 printout and all went well. The 5EZ pieces are all cut out and ready . i will be chugging away (so to speak) in fun building this one over the next week or so. I will definitely take photos and vids along the way and probably have a few questions here and there. thanks again Bob. this will be my first F22 Raptor build. As far as the CG. would you say 1 or 2 in. in front of prop?

In today's Raptor set-up video I show that the CG on my Raptor is the intersection of the trailing edge of the KFm4 airfoil and the planes centerline. It may not be exactly right but it's a good point of beginning.

I have also checked the point one inch forward of the KFm intersection which works even better.

As you know, I always enjoy your videos. You seem to have a gift for doing that sort of thing. So, thanks again for the set-up video. I put it in the folder with your plans. I will refer to it when life allows me the time for the build.

Warm regards;
