    I am trying to build the typhoon with incredible difficulty.

    1. No instructions. No indication on what is to be but from within the parts.

    2. Some undesignated parts seem to just have no meaning whatsoever.

    Anyone have anything to support this claim??? :cry: :?

    On his site you will find general instructions on how he intended his models to go together. While not the best system it does work and after you build one, the rest just fall into place.

    Remember, his models are intended to fly and as such, some detail is ommitted or just sacraficed altogether.

    The are fun little craft and do fly very well. My grandson loves them and even with flying, has maintained them and now has a good sized collection.

    Hope this helps a little,

    Once you figure out one of them it gets easier!

    It is tricky, but I find it helps to view it as sort of a puzzle. Most of the extra parts are there to reinforce the obvious parts for flying purposes, and if you try to match their shape with some part that you can figure it out, you will probably find it.

    I still don't know whether most of the fuselages are supposed to have straight-sided cross sections or whether you are supposed to bulge out the sides with a little curvature; I like mine better bulgy.

    I went bulged out as well on mine - They seemed to fit a bit better when ?squished? into a slightly rounded shape.

    Are the areas where the wings should be ... to be cut out?

    For the ones I made the wings are flat and you cut slits in either side of the fuselage and slide it through. If you decide to give the wings a bit of real shape just expand the cut - I did this for one of the two I did and it made it look nicer.

    Several years ago, Trotskiy had two pages which showed a mini build thread so to speak on his aircraft. I believe I have them on CD around here somewhere. If I can locate them, I'll zip them up and send to anyone who sends an email to ashrunner@gmail.com
