I used Boogies method on my TA37 in my blog.
It comes out really nice. If I had done a better job of hand cutting the parts I could have sanded the facets a little as the parts were curing and i would have had little to no real clean up to do on it.

Cheers,
Eric B.

the yellow glue is better than white glue. it's a stronger bond, but is not as forgiving as white glue. white glue allows you to reposition your pieces for a while, whereas yellow glue will not allow you to do that. you gotta position and clamp for a few hours. I use the yellow glue from Elmers quite a bit. I also really like Gorilla glue and a bit of epoxy here and there, but yellow Elmers is my go-to glue.

also forgot to add....................the yellow glue is better for hot, humid weather. humidity kills white glue, where yellow withstands it quite readily.

I will try the GG I mentoned in the first post, but I also have some Elmer's carpenters glue(yellow) if need be.

If the fuse turns out as I hope, it will be glassed anyway. Like humbertomelo did to his Super Habu.

you gonna try EZE kote to do your glassing, or you gonna try another method? the yellow glue should work well for the glassing too. Chris (Demondriver) has used it on his planes and it seems to work well. plus, it's lighter than epoxy, which is a bonus.

Hadn't given it much thought yet. Had planned on epoxy, will more than likely be using 3oz cloth.

why so heavy on the cloth? if it's for skinning only, you might be better off with 1oz or lighter. 3oz will take a lot of whatever it is that you end up using to wet out the cloth. more of the whatever means more weight. I'm sure you already realize that though. LOL.

I was more or less going by what humbertomelo used on his
Super Habu, that's all. I want this for more that just skinning, the strength is more important.

I have tried many glues. In my opinion for FFF , DS and Depron the Beacons Foam Tac which used to be the Ultimate RC Foam Glue works great. It dries quickly, strong, non brittle bond, doesnt expand, sands fairly well and its light. This and good old epoxy are my go to glues. Glad you are back building

Thanks, I am getting around pretty good, for a gimp! Most of the time around the house I don't even need the walker. I did venture out to the mail box this past week, (looking for my motor from Efflux RC), a nessesary trip!! Missed it and it came the next day.

It's great to be back buiding. Lots of stuff to work out before hand. If you haven't seen my new "project" take a look. I hope I can do it justice.

I want to thank all that have made a contribution, great stuff!

On my current build I'm sure i will have some questions on methods and techniques you guys have used. So this will be opened up to foam building, bending and cutting questions and the like. Feel free to add your expertise!

I have answered some of my questions already by looking threw past build attachments. A wealth of info to be had. Keep it coming
