ok, wing and horizontal stab all sanded out and smoothed with 400 grit. nice airfoil shape, this wing was easy, took maybe 15min to rough out with 100 grit and another 10 for 400 grit smoothing. hope to start doing the fuse parts tomorrow.

@Walt, ok ok...I revised the plans just a touch and have the patterns cut, and have the forward/upper fuse parts cut along with the verticle stab. I was bounceing between doing the intakes by bending the foam sheets and boxing them then sanding to shape...want to keep it simple so they will be boxed...dont worry they will look nice and round after sanding to shape

@i12flyrc,
no glassing....its only a 50mm...I am shooting for 4oz's airframe weight and 10oz's AUW...I think I just might make it too.

here are a couple pics, hopefully get the fuse glued up and sanded out by tonight then all I will need to do is build the intakes, cut the canopy, and carve the nose. I will be building in a battery pocket inside the nose just in case the battery needs to go forward of the #1 former, may not need it but ya never know.

Those drawings look good enough to frame and hang on the wall. They look sweet!

thanks Mike,
got the upper fuse framed up, little slow going on it trying to keep it straight while building it. not alot of meat there
still needs intakes, canopy, and nose. the nose will be hollowed out to fit the batt just in case for CGafication
total weight so far is still just under 2oz's
so far so good..

Joe,

This is a great looking Intruder. Loved your Phantom build also, so I'm eagerly following along with this. Especially since Intruders and Prowlers are close to my heart.

Awesome progress on the Intruder! Makes me want to build my one... Huh, what to buy first - OSD for my FPV, or EDF power system and servos?
