no more war!
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
if I get to be an elite veteran do I have to wear a funny hat like Josh ?
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 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:
