not a lot to report, have been poodling along with the masking and painting, still have the insignias to do, not my favourite task but must be done. i will use some friskit for these i think. need to finish making the windscreen, and vac up the exhaust stubs which i have made up the basic form for, it is just from 2 pieces of balsa split down the middle they were held together with double sided tape to shape and will be split so as to form the 2 halves which will be glued together. the screen is being framed with evergreen U, and H section channel, with a plastic fruitjuice container for the glass.

Cheers darook, and Pat, i really enjoyed carving up the front end of this one, very interesting shape, got it close enough to make the type identifyable i think.

Will it sport a swastika on the fin? I've never quite understood the reasoning behind banning it in certain countries. If it is supposed to be there, then it should be. Banning it won't make the past not have happened. I'd have thought that, if denouncing that era was the aim, the symbol serving as a reminder would have been a better idea.

Yeah, I know, I'm being confrontational again.

yes it will score a swastika, i am just waiting until the wings are ready for markings before i cut my masks as i am running a bit short of frisket, and need to get the most out of whats left.
I am with you on the whole politics of it all, banning a symbol wont discourage an ideology, if anything it will only hide it which to my way of thinking is worse in some cases!

The swastika is an ancient symbol that has been used by several cultures. Most recently I believe the Finns also used the swastika. I see no reason to ban it just because the Nazis borrowed it. BTW I believe sombody smarter than me once said "Those that dont study history are doomed to repeat it" or some such.

Anyhow, the He looks great. Should be a lot of fun to fly.

Sanding tools


Craig,

Everyone was very impressed by your filleting skills on the fin, myself included. Was wondering if you use some special (bought or homemade) tools to make the curves flow so nicely.

Thanks

Hiya Brian, the fin fillets were just roughed out with a saw, razor planned, and hand sanded. I tacked them to the balsa profile jig that I showed in that post to help support them because they are pretty thin and fragile until covered and glued to the fin permanently.

Cheers
Craig
