I'm Going to do it!
I just can't help it. I got the wood and have started to build this plane.
I printed out the plans and it looks like it's going to have a 40" wingspan. It was made for rubber FF, but I THINK I can make it electric. I will add ailerons and cross my fingers. The plans have a few discrepancies in them. When they were scanned there is about 1/4" or more missing when you try to butt the printed pages next to each other. I eye balled what looked like the appropriate distance and filled in the rest with a pen. Also, fuselage former #13 is missing a mark for a rib.
I am going to build it following the original instructions and materials. When I get the winds I will add the ailerons. The pictures are of me chalking the paper forms onto my balsa stalk. I tried hand tracing them and I found it inaccurate as the pencil lost it's tip, snagging the paper etc. I thought about gluing the paper to the wood and decided it's to much extra effort.
Have they improved tissue covering? Or is it all passe? I'll keep updating this. I have never had to cut all my pieces from scratch before.
Long Live the Dremel !
