3.5m HOLLOW MOLDED L-13 BLANIK NOW WITH FLIGHT VIDEOS

After the sucsess of my red bull fox i though it fitting to start an new model between building a couple more foxxes.

This model will be a 3.5m hollow molded BLANIK L-13.
i have built quite a few pss models from my own plugs and molds. In the past i have made my plugs from solid MDF as they were small enough not to be to heavy.But and plug this size from MDF would be un workable so i am going to give foam a go for the fuz plug of coarse i will be glassing the foam once carved to shape.

Any coments and help would be appreciated

So come and join in on this build with me.

Cheers Shane

Why 3.5 meters? If your going to put all that time into a molded ship you should make it 1/4 scale or bigger. I was looking into this plane as my winter project but ended up with the 2-32. One day I would like to build a 1/3 scale version. Good luck with you project.

A 3.5m scalie is better suited to the local slopes i have.

If you and Erich build 1/4 or 1/3, I would also be interested. We could all three make exact copies and do an airshow.

I have made all the wing and tail cutting templates and cut the tail cores and blocked out the wing cores which i hope to get them cut tomorrow night.I have also ordered some 3/4 crome moly tube for the wing joiner.

  • All control surfaces are metal framed and fabric covered - ailerons, flaps, elevators & rudder
  • The wheel is semi-retractable - just under half the wheel is still exposed when retracted
  • There seems to be many more examples of aircraft fitted with wheels rather than skids. They seem to use the same attachment points

The fowler flaps will be a challenge me thinks. Are we up for it?

Yes
