looks really nice! can't wait to see it with the wings on!
Here is the fuselage with the seat, fuel tank, engine, radiator, lower
wing spar and 6 rolled exhaust tubes. Sure wish I had a better camera
for the pictures.
These two pictures show the lower wing installed and the upper wing
with the stiffener and rigging wires installed.
It's starting to look like a plane. Great work Ray.
Looks really nice. Some info on how to work with such small pieces would be helpful(for those of us with big clumsy hands).
There is really nothing special I do to work in this scale. Almost all of the techniques I use are the same as what you would use in the larger scales, only adapted for smaller use. Such as, only using
one side of a doubled/folded over part, or using
regular printer paper for rolled parts. And, it does
need to be a little gentler cutting out parts. This small, and one slip of the blade cuts your plane in half!
Texman, what did you use for the rigging?
I am using a .004 clear nylon thread. Scales well,
doesn't sag alot, and can be tightened up with
a soldering iron if need be.
And the saga continues..
Here are the wing braces and the tail surfaces. The yellow square
is the 1 inch square on my cutting mat.
The next series shows the tail surfaces and wing braces installed.
Now with the top wing installed, however the rigging is not
threaded through yet.
