Rhys,
Where did you order your 4mm from and how much?
Cheers
Simon

Hi Simon,
4mm White Correx was from The One Stop Plastics Shop here; http://www.theonestopplasticsshop.co...mm-p-4974.html
It's well priced to my knowledge but the P+P (which was 7.50) ramped the price up a little. It came well packed and NO damage, just as I wanted.
I put the order in at 11:21am, and it was despatched at 2:21pm! Not bad service I say.
Let me know if you find it (and 2mm cheaper)

My 2mm correx was rolled up and not in the best of conditions though.

Thanks for the link.
My Correx also came rolled.
I released it from it's packing and left it in the warm dining room overnight and next day was flat.
Quality wasn't bad considering what they normaly use it for. Only used it for wings so far, it does the job well and plenty strong enough.
Didn't get down to Wales over easter unfortunately, maybe in the summer.
Cheers

Simon,
My 2mm correx that came rolled is now flat (flat enough anyway) but still has kinks and creases in it in places. It's not perfect but will do fine for wings.
I tend to be a bit anal about perfection, can't help it I like it to be near perfect, or it gets done again

Make sure you get down here when I've got my Mig up and flying, and not before

Then I'm afraid you may have to redo the fuse! You have cut out an engine bay?
While you are at it, without a gas engine you can do a more scale nose by not rounding the bottom, and lengthen it as Sean does to help with the CofG.
One layer of 4mm Correx will do fine for formers, tail pieces and ailerons

Oooops!
As Rusty stated.....seems those arms and fingers are going to get another workout!....So...for your next fuzz.......include the construction lines, as they help you line the formers up straight and square. Seems that glass of goldish and froth is blurring your concentration


Otherwise, it looks good!!...Keep them pics comming...helps to keep you on the straight and narrow!!

PLEASE.....also.... while you are templating the fuzz, markout the CofG on the fuzz inside. I have had plenty guys ask where it is.....they seem to miss it on the plan. I then take a small straight pin and make a hole through the fuzz skin. This makes your CofG permanent on the outside for you to see...even when you are on the slope making a few adjustments.

How in Satans name do you mark the former lines on the cortex? I did all of them after the photo was taken apart from F.

I take it I leave the front end piece in the turns into the fuse on the plan? Picture?

Cheers.

Mig nose

There appears to be compromise made in the nose to accommodate a gas engine, or sloppy drafting.
The nose is a lot sharper and conical - take some of the curve out of the bottom where the correx butts together.

Hi Sean,
I have finally made a start on the correx mig.
Last Autumn I found some 4mm correx and the 2mm correx arrived rolled up.
That is now straightened out.
The formers and Fuz skin are cut out.
Went to the PSSA event at the Great Orme today also included are some pics.

wow that bird is impressive
It's a really unique design, and I read the payload and saw that it was built to carry heavy bombs as well as a nuclear weapon thats incredible.

The speed is slower than I though specially with the turbojets as a propulsion system.

That wing design is great, it's again, a unique design.

Thanks for sharing!
