Depron Airbus A340-600 build - 3 meters


Hello,
this is a Depron Airbus A340-600 build... 3 meters long!

I learned a lot from my past depron Boeing 777-200 build: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=2564491 both from my errors and from all the people that helped me with suggestions in the thread.

Let's start!

Transport


The fuselage will be in one piece even though it's 3 meters long, so this is the way I'm going to transport it... I already imagine the faces of the people in other cars

Mostly paper models for the fuselage and my plans for wings and internal structure.

Nice work man! Have you ever considered using a CAD program? it is very convenient to use.
  • For the depron parts I print out on paper what I have drawn then I cut the shapes and use them as guide to cut depron.
  • For the wooden parts I print out on paper what I have drawn and glue it to the wood sheet and use it as a guide for the jigsaw

Thanks Nick! I do use Google Sketch-up from time to time if I need a part cut out on a CNC router or my 3D-printer.

For instance I have the A340 on CAD already.

Fuselage


Some work done on the fuselage...

Stabilizers


I tried to use as less wood as I could, for example the rudder is all depron! It seems pretty strong though. The weaker part is where the central spar will meet the fuselage, for that reason I tripled the depron spar
