Wow Dag your Fusealage Formers and ribs are looking awsome and you make the scroll saw look like it is easy !!!!

I have always liked a wood frame up myself rather than fiberglass anyway.

I dont know how to exsplain it but I just do...lol...

I tried Kinkos here locally, but the gal running the place seemed totally stumped when I told her that I simply wanted the plans printed out.
She tried 3 times, and 3 times they did print but were on the paper the wrong way, and about 1/3 of the plans were cutout.
So I gave up, and after waiting for an hour also, I went home.
Obviously with no plans.

PS- Our VAA Chapter had a movie nigt tonight at the clubhouse at the airport. We watched a trilogy of three short movies "Flights of Courage" about the US Air Mail Service, very good, then the next one was "The Red Baron, also quite good, and the last short movie was "The Lindbergh Story".
My buddy Geoff got it through Netflicks.


THanks!

Ed,
Got the drawings, they are 90 degrees off what most printers would like to see them in, but that should be no problem, I will try a test print this afternoon. You also said that you would like to blow them up, by what %? I think I can do it, but once you get past 36" wide in one direction you will need to get the tape out and start attaching the drawings.

Rock On!

Tim,
Some guys are great with glass, but I have never seen a plane yet where glass was really lighter, if it was easy all the 3D guys would be using alot more of it, but just my 2 cents, don't what to de-rail the thread about glassing. The scroll saw is just about going 150,000% slow, and taking your time. I have had many parts where the first 20 cuts were great, then had to trash the part because I got to far off the line. If I were rich I would have a laser cutter, but I get close and it only takes about a month to cut all of the parts.

Ed,
Have watch it many, MANY times. The scene where it takes off I was told was shot from a b-25 out the waist gunner position.

Hi Dag, I never really payed attention to the credits of the mvie, but I am going guess that either Clay Lacy or Tallmantz aviation did the filming. I do belive Clay lacy has a B-25 that he rigged for aerial filming.

Ed

PS- Have you ever seen "One Six Right"?
Great flick!

Hi Ed, that is a great video !!

I may have to buy the DVD !!

Right now they have left and right videos, (Two part I guess) for about $27.00 and free shipping !!

I love that movie you guy's have been talking about !!
Jimmy Stewart and June Allison always made great movies together !!!

June Allison's husband used to call Jimmy Stewart his "Husband N Law"...lol lol lol...
Because they played married parts in so many movies you know...lol lol lol...

Dag, if it isnt to much trouble !!
I would love a set of those plans that you are printing for ED.
What size are you guy's going for ?
I was actually wanting 105" wingspan to be an even 1/5th scale but I dont want to be more difficult.
If what Ed wants is close, I will just take those so you dont have to redue everything.
I will pay for the time, Paper, and shipping...

I'm a little embarrased to be sticking my nose in this so if I am stepping out of bound I will understand.

Seeya, Tim

Good stuff!!!

Hey guys,
Since we all enjoy aviation, this reallly isn't about electrics,
but go to

www.onesixright.com

and then click on "Flying Full Circle" and watch it, about ten minutes long --AWESOME!!
Then click on "Aviation Epic"

Good stuff!!!
If you haven't seen "One Six Right" you're really missing out on a great movie!!!

Thanks Tim,
Not sure about the best, I just love designing in 3D then builting it. The hours in this project are most likely over 200 of design and drawing. The first CAD drawing was in 1999, the first 3D was in 2003. It started as a gas, but was just going to be to heavy.

Attached is the #2 nacelle it is for the mock-up to test how a in-runner would attached and be cooled. The other mock-up will be for the out-runner shaft driven, but it is really looking like 6 Neu in-runners at the rear of the nacelle, the weight savings are a lot.

Thanks, DAG

Tim,
I am seeing at what scale Ed's drawing will print to. It looks like the paper is 106" long, so the wing will be around 103"-105"

I will let you two know once I see if it works.

Rock On!
