I will mount the EDF as you see in the pictures and glue the lower part of the engine pod at 3 points with epoxy. I will also use the self adhesive vinyl to cover the gap between the two pieces. This will allow me to change fan, housing and motor without too much hazzle.

Just got back from vacation and had to catch up lots of posts. Wow! You guys rock! Very nice planes and great job done!

There was question about glue. I am going to use 3M77 to glue together fuse and other parts. It is in a spray can but can be sprayed into a container and applied with a brush. Works like contact cement, flexible and has no weight.

Here is something I did while on vacation and it is somewhat related to the topic since there is 737 take off in the video as well. Hope you enjoy

Yea, but it's possible without ruining the plane

No. What numbers did you have in mind, most is in the tread above



This evening I'm at my girlfrends place, and I have made covers for the fuse, wings and tail!

Ok you all, here is just a small sample of the progress so far on my 737. Fuselage will be done tomorrow then assembly can begin.. All parts will be sprayed with a sealing clear gloss coat once I'm done.

They are Faskolor paints applied with an airbrush.

I am NOT the artist. A gentleman named Dante at my local hobby shop is painting it.

I've got to say I think outsourcing the painting is quite a good idea. SWA looks good- kudos to your painter.

I'm probably going to get a few frowns with this question however....

Would it possible to modify the Windrider 737 with two glow engines as a propeller rather than DF?
My reasoning for this is because i dont like LiPo's and and can't afford a turbine.

this is mostly foam , could you use 2 nitro motors ? yes but I have
flown nitro twins and I would never do it again , new lipos and way
better then just a couple of years ago.

you would need to reinforce the air frame adding weight , now it
has a fairly light wing loading , makeing it nitro would ruin
mings wounderful 737 model . but just my opion
