Rudder & stab . . . .


Now to make the Balsa stabilizer & verticle rudders for my two skyvan's.
In time I will sand their leading edges smooth.

I think these Skyvan's are in the same scale as the Tri-stars.

From 360 to 330


In preparation for my two new upcoming Shorts 330's I'm modifying my existing 360 plans & adding the shorter 330 twin tail rudders & slightly shorter fuse.

Thanks Mesnick! I'm going to construct the Van's wings similar to how I would build the wings from foam & depron . . . . instead they will be almost all balsa.
