Copied your JIG


Here is my version of the JIG built by Balsastaub.

Formers will be cut out with tabs on the bottom for correct height placement.

Hey Plane Freak?

What is the plan on the wall behind your jig??? Is that a Tucano?

Hmmm. Did something go terribly wrong on the maiden? I'd really like to see some pictures or at least some information on how the maiden was... Such a pretty bird, but what happened to her?

Hey Guy's

Just wondering how you are covering the fuselage, are you using all 10mm planks or sheeting some? Also wouldn't the two radiator cowels make a lot of extra drag?

Are those uprights just butt glued to the base? Is that aliphatic or hot melt?

Yes they are butt glued with yellow carpenters glue. That way the JIG can be torn apart and used for another model.

The drawing on the wall is one I traced from a set of plans my friend has.
It is for a 0.90 powered Mk.IX and is very similar to the DXF plans we are all building from.

I finally got my light plywood so I can start cutting.

Here we can see the clamps that hold everything straight while the glue sets.

All glue joints are medium CA without using kicker for maximum strength.
