Pm'ed.

I know the fumes are bad - but I like the smell. Is that naughty?

This project hasn't stalled........ just not had the time for modelling

Indeed, I've just come back from a trip to the mainland to fly in the UK nats. (came 4th in ff scale with my Scimitar).

I've decided on how to power the Fury. It's a KP44 with a (now unavailable, pity!) aircraftworld DIY outrunner. 250 to 300W on 3s.

I hope to modify the moulds and also lay up a new, stronger fuse this weekend.

Also I want to make an automatic wing-core cutter before much else gets built.

That scimitar is gorgeous! I can't imagine trying a free flight Electrolyte. That takes huevos of steel! Huge respect to you!

It's nothing compared to cutting holes in the Fury mould

Nike work Steve! Looks great. It will make joining in the mold very doable! Have you laid up a 2nd fuse yet?

cant wait to see how it turns out. i always thought a FJ4 would make a awesome model with all that wing area, and decent inlet size, large vertical, and differnt looks. always wanted to do a FJ1....cause ive just about never seen one modeled, and its a "cute" jet....chubby, but classic at the same time. kinda like a mig 15 with p-51 wing/tails..

one of these days ill do a small composite model....may end up beeing based off the 50mm T-33 foamy...some day...too many other projects at the moment...so for now...ill live off of pdawg/danji/steglas micro builds!

pdawg ..............This weekend. Got a long weekend and the weather looks too awful for flying.

CN ...................I too can't stop looking at the FJ-1. Relatively short duct and the Mustang wings I've just been given a first production KP24 to test and I need to make something nano-size (70g) for it.

Hi Guys,

The Fury project that had stalled is now back on. I had problems pulling a decent moulding but now I am equipped with a vacuum bagging setup and results are so much better........... Also I just can't play with composites when the weather is cold.

Target weight with a 4s pack should be 400g 14 - 15oz. and with that huge wing it should fly like a trainer!

Thanks Guys....The FJ-4 has to be the best looking Yank jet ever!

I've made some intake ducting..............2 layers of 80g cloth vacced over a male mould.

Being my first composite this model has been a very steep learning curve. Using vacuum was the turning-point thats getting some decent results.

Maybe the Fury was a bit ambitious............. but you need a subject that really excites you to keep the interest.

Steady progress.......... the wings are joined and the ducting and the fan fitted and also the tailplane hinged.
