This is really going to be a cool project.

It's going to be huge 257" doesn't sound all that big; until you see a part cut out; or do the math 257/12 that's over 20 feet
I'm along for the watching; should be kinda cool when it's all done.

Thanks,
It will go a little slow this next 2 weeks, then after that I should be able to put about 20 hours a week into building. She should look like a plane by mid november. I still have to build the table a jig for the wings though.

My work takes up a ton of my time, but with the summer hobbies coming to a end I should get more done.

Thanks, DAG

Ya, I didnt think about it but you probably have to do as much work setting up to build this monster as building it !!!

dag, what cad program did you use to draw the plans? I scanned through the whole thread before asking, but didn't see anything.

Tim,
I have to build 4 tables, one for the fuse, 2 for the wings, and one for the H-stab. The H-stab is 80", heck the H-stab is IMAA legal LOL.

dhelms,
I used AutoCad 2000. Just never got around to updating it. I only use it for my models. I can output any of my darwings as dwg, or dxf files.

Thanks all,

DAG

Some data:
one shows a 19" prop at 12 pitch, and the other at 16 pitch look at the amps used and the air speed.

What will the final finish be once you sheet everything? Are you going for a scale finish as well?

I think I will ultracote her and then a thin light coat of paint where needed.

She needs to be both grey and light silver.

Dag, where did you order your wood from ?

I think you did get a great deal !!!

Thats a great deal for that much wood but that may be why you got such a great deal too.

Anyway, I will be building a short kit soon and I will need some wood.
