when you get into the high grits Joe you can use WD40 or kerosene..if you can stand the smell it won't clog the paper as much and also helps prevent oxidisation patches (if using low mg alloys)

I use a medium rubber block cut to the surface curvature, for softer molds even a carefully crafted piece of EPP works well.

Cavity polishing is a bit of an artform, but with the quality of your other work you should have 'em shining in no time flat!

Hey, um - what's the span of those horizontal stabs? Are they like a mini-sport 48" wingspan?

Hey Joe - how much elbow grease does it take to sand the alu from rough cut to mirror finish? How long does it take? John

Just Fly it

Prior v New


Joe i have a feeling this is going to look quite different than the prev 160. I have seen the rad air foil by Joe Wurtz. You are not being cautious here is see. Somewhere i had heard that the basic planform was similar to the prev plane. Will the fuse be molded also? Why the one piece wing? You wont be able to build it in your garage at that length. We are only looking at the elevator molds and im already amazed. Thanks for the pictures.
John
