    dear friends,

    As this site started to become alive, I posted in this forum to start the discussion about ...( this important point was forgotten by me :? )

    hence I propose this thread to become the wishlist for tutorials.

    Well done Raimund!

    I wish for a tutorial on ship rigging materials, procedures, tips & tricks, etc.
    Can a person wish more than once, or maybe only once a year on their birthday? There are just so many topics I know nothing about!

    I'd like a tutorial on how to build wings WITHOUT the warp :wink:

    which reminds me.....

    In the original instructions for one of Burt Rutans glass fibre home build aircraft, he included a mail coupon, so that after VERY carefully bulding one wing, discovering how easy it was and charging ahead with the second one, you could then get in touch with like-minded builders, who, like you, then discovered they had built two left (or right) wings! No doubt you could then arrange a swap..... Enthusiasm is a wonderful thing.


    PS Did someone mention tutorials?

    wings without warp?

    ....really depends on the scale. larger scales with formers can be a bit cahallenging. my best advive, without getting tutorial, would be carefully score (with straight edge) if needed and uniform assembly. pressing a wing edge flat along it's entire length can help prevent "twist". it happens to everyone.

    Thanks for the tips! I will try them out on my next build :D In the mean time, any advice on how to close the wing tips without inducing said warp?
    Should the skin be glued to the formers or loose to allow adjustment? I tried one wing each way and can't say it made much difference :(

    Thanks again, perhaps a tutorial isn't needed after all :lol:
