Hi Mike

Looking good in the wing dept., i was looking at the Itialan gliders and the one i really like has a diamond shaped fuse with 4 poles going out on the fuse side angle to hold the wing.

If my heart was not so fond of a primary i would have built one of those neat looking planes, maybe strech the fuse a tad but [ next build ] other than that it is a cool looking glider.

I'am just drawing my fuse prints now for the 1/5 scale primary with a 80" wing and 12" cord and about 44" long?, after 22 yrs away i'am sure looking forward to cutting some wood!!

Once i have my prints done i can start a build log here in scale and see what takes shape with this H.R.P. the ' Hot Rod Primary '

Hi Mike

The plane i was looking at had no struts, the wing was held by 4 posts 2 on esch side out on an angle of the fuse to hold the wing up above the fuse.

The fuse was square but turned 45 degrees so the corners were N.S. and E.W. so the 4 posts went out on a 45 degree angle up to the wing, just a very simple wing holding system.

I will look on Vincenzo's site and post the plane name.

Hi Mike

Recieved a dvd from the museum guys in Seattle and it has some detail shots of the tail feathers on the Cessna primary, that has helped me for laying out the hardware to hold the stab & rudder to the fuse.

Now i can start drawing the final set of plans and get to building this early time bird, just laying out where all the cables will go now.

Lots of thin wire and small rods in this baby, with little tiny screws and nuts for the hardware package along with a few custom made alum brackets.

After not building for 22 yrs i'am sure looking forward to making some alum chips & wood dust.

Hi Mike

I sure would like to start cutting some wood but need more drawings yet, laying out all the cables and pulleys.

Then i can make the final plans and know it will all got tgether ok, got a few sample cable thimbals for the .018 cable boy are they small not sure what to use yet for a correct turnbuckle as i need a male & female end also a proper clevis and pin with lock wire.

I'am really surprised the no one makes the whole cable hook up package for scale vintage airplanes?

Later
