A380 construction pictures


Here are some pictures of my A380 during construction. The only problem i experinced sofar was when i first drew the centre sheeting i did not think of the grain of depron, so when i tried to bend it around the fuselage formers is crinkeled a little i had to use my heat gun for it to bend round, it does not look to bad but iam not happy about it really, i already ajusted my autocad drawings to change the way the part is on the depron sheet. I will recut out the airframe on my cnc, and take photos for my instruction manual but also i will include the lighting system i brought for it from hobbyking.

Can't wait to get this one flying.

hi guys, just added pictures with nacelles added to the wing made from a healthy drink bottle. Actimel http://www.actimel.co.uk/Flavours/Default.aspx. The link is so you can see the shape of the bottle close up, by the way im not advertising

just added pics with the ailerons attached

zeroskin76 ive tried design this for prop use as i wanted to design a plane that was cheap build and kit out, but when i get the kits ready anybody who buys one could convert it to edf, i would love to put edfs but the cost does not do it for me im using an under £5 brushless motor and cheap 9g servos.
