EVOLUTION W The build


First of all thank you for your purchase.
I have reserved the first few spots where I intend to present and perhaps answer all questions regarding this kit.
I will do my best to be as thorough as possible with the risk of boring some of you with details you can figure out. The idea is to have enough information so that someone who did not build a wood model in their life after watching and reading this , be able to build this model the first time correctly and without any problems.

Let's start with what is inside
As a base there is a Short kit to which I add Wood part components or Composite pod components.
Not in pictures there is a frame plan for building the wing.

Wing Frame Construction


Start with a flat board. Preferably some shelving material or the white MDF. I prefer to have two pieces that i van independently move around and it is specially practical if you work in a tight space. I used 3M 77 to glue the plans directly to the piece of MDF.

To make the frame I started with the root make sure you place the root frame rib in the correct position (match the engraved lies on the print) then frame piece 1B and after that the rest of the frame pieces. I think i made the TE frame piece a little narrow so when you glue it in place elevate the piece flush to the top of the frame ribs and glue in place.

The 1B marking is on the rear lower corner of the piece check the third picture.

Frame (4 min 27 sec)


I have added a CA bottle tip insert
