Jeff is this the video that has the guys backing the mold with sand? If so I am going to get it. I bought the video, and it had a large portion missing, I didn't find this out until I borrowed a friends who subsequently lost it in a fire.

If its that video then it is a worthy purchase, what about the foam wing dvd?

Hi Jay - the video IIRC showed making a production fiberglass mold using resin and cloth - went through the complete process including layup of a scale glider. Some of the polyester resin techniques would not be so applicable today given the availability of epoxy gelcoats etc..

This video would do if the hydrocal mold making video leaves you wanting for more regulat molds.

>Sand backup.. The video I have on making wing molds from IIRC soaring stuff had Fred ? building the freda plane a 3m F3b model. Must of watched it many, many times .. shows what is possible in an ordinary workshop...
almost inspirational

now..
http://www.soaringstuff.com/products/videos/hollow.html

some discussion..
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=160657

This video and the free rocketworm vid would get anybody (given time and motivation) into molded wings.

>foam cutting and vac bagging... I think Phils video are much more relevant and up to date. These videos were released in late 1980's and the material covered were for me simply mind blowing now time and methods have developed and moved on

cheers Jeff
