What's your favorite build for a hot wire bow? There are so many and I gotta build one.
No Sir not all my scratch builds use the sandwich style

My shorts. 360 and Boeing B-9 and my F3h demon have internal wing ribs & spars.

I will be builds a all balsa scratch built airliner from the 1930's soon so that I don't get rusty with my old world skills & techniques.

The great thing about a hotwire bow Flex is that you can desigb & cut thousands of different types of aircraft. . . . .even a B-1 Lancer.

Thanks for answering. However, I meant what hot wire bow instructions did you follow for constructing the bow itself? Seems there's like 500 of em out there. (And yes, between you and me, LOL, it might just be for a B-1B design or re-design...hmmm those curves are tricky!)

Flex. . . .this 145 thread is quickly becomeing the "where do I find a Hot-wire Bow" thread lol

But seriously Flex all you have to do is go to Google ande type in the search "Hot-wire Bow" and 15 different companies come up that make & sell them.

And there are also "how to build your own Hot-wire bows" right here on RCG

They are fairly easy to build Sir.
