DH2 Designed and printed with video


Me and My dad have been making our planes better and better. This is the start of our last DH-2 its 1/26th scale 13inch wing span. Also pictured is our last proto type which flies well with Ember guts. This next one will be designed for the guts coming out of the new Park zone Mustang.

Start of the new and better

The wing span is 13.25 inches. We are going to tear apart one of the Mustangs we have and put the guts in our new one to make it 4 channel and also will use the Mustang motor and will be experimenting with a 4inch props. There are no plans at this time and this DH2 will soon have a Fokker EIII to dog fight with. With the Fokker EIII will also have Mustang guts and will be experimenting with wing warping, just like the real thing.

Looking good! Did you print on the depron or on tissue?

This is printed straight to the foam after it was airbrushed with Inkaid.

Did you happen to weight the wink after the InkAID dried? I'm curious about the weight gain, as I am about to do the same thing.

Also, how much did you thin the InkAID?

TIA,

I thinned the inkaid about 30% water 70% inkaid. I say about because I did this by eye. Furthermore I didn't weight before because I coated a whole sheet of depron then cut three 14"x13" sheets after it had dried. If you do a search on inkaid someone has this information.

fuselage and nose plug


This is a test body so I could make the nose plug the right size. I plan on molding the nose out of light clear plastic and airbrushing it the right color.
