Kawasaki ki-61 Hien

I am still experimenting with my new camera. ...

Hien data:I built this model in 1999.(scratch)The plan is for a 1/12 dogfighter.(combat with streamer) I have used up two models doing combat one 1/12 Bf109e (midaircoll.) a Mig3(ground suddenly hit it)
So to save this one I converted it.
Designers name Anders Karlson(Swede)
It is planned for a 15 IC motor.
Rather thin wing profil.
Wingspan 38"(97cm) wing area .Wing loading 17,4 oz/sq.
AUW 31,6 oz.(895gram) with 8cells 1400ae.
Motor Multiplex Permax 450 Turbo.ESC kontronik sun 4000
Prop apc 7x5.
Acc. to Moto-calc. this is good set up for a basic trainer.
I real life it performs well loops,split-s etc.
All balsa and a few ply parts.
Cover is rather heavy Solartex.
Finish Humbrol colors hand painted on.
Jap pilot from balsa Helge
pics in next post.

I continue the building of this modell. After I attached the wing and glue the 3mm blasa sheet onto the bottom, I have found a mistake. The tail of the plane is awry. I think I made this mistake when I built the fuselage... But I recognize this now... So It will flyable or trash? On the last photo you can see the center line and the error.

So can I continue the building and fix this error with the rudder or this bird is a dead bird?

From the nose to the trailing edge everything is correct. No mistake.

Beautiful plane Helge, great paint job. Glad to hear that a beautiful plane like that flies well also.

Bazsix, your plane will fly. Just gotta finish it, learn from your mistakes but carry on. Don't quit and you'll have a beautiful plane when you're done.

thx the help. So you think it will be flyable. What can I do with the rudder. So I must offset it to the original line?

Gravity sucks.

All flying surfaces must still be aligned correctly, even if the fuselage is "off".
The fin will need to be straight ahead.
