Question concerning the glue...

We here in europe (at least here in switzerland...) do not know shoe-goo...

Also the ZAP-Goo is not known yet...

Question, shoe-goo, is that based on silicone?
Basically a silicone-sealer?
So the
http://www.supergluecorp.com/super-g...ilicone-sealer
would work as well?

Or are we talking a foaming glue?
There is a new product around here, which looks like a thick flowing honey with an amber colour, and it's based on PU.
Called BeliZell, infos here: http://www.belizar.eu/6.html
When applied and under pressure, it will start to foam up and fill every crevice. Super to repair foam, as it retains a foamy structure and thus remains somewhat flexible. The quick-setting type gets you about 20min time to set things up until it hardens and also bonds metal.
That's the right thing?

I would *LOVE* to get some informations on the Goo-story...

Cheers,
Dany

I would say that http://www.supergluecorp.com/pro-seal would be great. Flexible and looks like it is a very tough adhesive. Let us know how you like it?

I am at the wing saddle now and thought I would show the progress. I am also going to run stringers to the tail. So I am going to make a former off of the back wing saddle. I cut out a small triangle so the wing would sit the entire cord. If the plans are followed you can't miss the correct incidence The saddle will be sheeted, wing mounts added and I will make Fiberglass wing fillets. More on that later.

I love this laser cut kit!!
Cheers,
Matt

Dave and Joe,

I made a cowl while the little one was sleeping today... I made it out of floral foam. The lifted part will accommodate a radial. I'll glass it tonight and in the next few days make a mold. So if anyone would like to have an epoxy glass cowl I will be able to provide one.

Thanks,
Matt

Cool man! Make sure you line up those wood rings a little better when you glue them...

Looks great! Please let me know when they will be available, and how much you need for one. That part is just what I need to get my radial mounted. I wonder what Skydan is doing with his? Keep up the nice work. You had me worried when you were talking about two left wings.

Regards,
-Mike

I did build two left wings on my first RC model a Carl Goldberg Eaglet(1982). I still have the Gold Futaba radio and OS.15. I would have been successful if I had glued the servo tray in place but I thought it would be great if I could remove it When I pulled back it went up and then down! Spent the next year flying a Gental Lady... I did teach myself and after 1000's of losses I am still learning

Happiness is model airplanes!

More pictures of the progress

I cheated and covered the fuselage with fabric first then install the 1/64 ply.
I still need to trim the aft cockpit and I am going to cheat again and not cut out the forward cockpit. I'll just put a faux cover on it I also filled the tail section to ease the covering process. I'll be hinging and gluing the tail on today as well. The cowl is a slow project due to the blizzard conditions we are enduring

Love this Kit!!

Matt

Oh man....it's so cool to see a good builder working on this1 Love the covering man! What covering are you using Matt? I've used coverite before and loved it.

Looks awesome!
What color are you going for? Are you doing "Miss Champion"?

Wow Matt! That looks great! That is exactly what I pictured doing for my cowl. I'm laying up the second half of the mold for the cowl today and should be able to pull a part by Saturday. I have some great photos of the cowl. You might want one of 'em. I'm gonna see if I can get to my girlfriend's computer this morning. edit: photos are downloaded.

Now, if you can find the hole where the rotor pylon mounts...
