Hi John
its looking good!
I think the stuka is great as you can hide most engines inside the cowl & I think that improves the scale appearance! Very Happy

Got back on the build ,first thing was sort out the control rods came up with some 6mm hollow carbon rods strong but very light .
one end fitted a female fitting to take a 3mm rod ,other end male fitting to connect to servos. Glued with Ca and pined for safety




Fitted to the servos





Now i can get on with the fuss sheeting had to plank around the bottom to get the radius right










Made up a small tool to rebate the shrouds into the trailing edges going to glue in 1/64 ply and fine tune the gap then sand smooth and glass over them




They should fit in nicely


Rudder will get the same treatment

Made a start by building the wing center section





need to build both wing panels separate from the center section because they have washout at the tips this needs to be done before removing from the building board so top is fully sheeted





the panels are fined tuned to join to the center section





Thats it for now

Well the weather is very bad so getting plenty of build time in the warm Very Happy decided to make my own servo mounts you can buy these but have time to waste Laughing





I can now fit these into the wing on a ply plate with a inspection cover for maintenance



next job is to start the ailerons and flaps, there not very conventional but hang down under the back of wing on a hinge rods that passes thorough them, so a grove is required in the leading edge, i ran the stock over my table saw to get a nice fit






next part of the build is to finish the outer wing panels and line them up,to get as much sheeting done on the center section as possible



now to join the lot up see how big this wing is





Thats it for now Bravo

I 'm building it in one piece as i have my van Very Happy its quite a difficult build in one ,would be a nightmare affraid in three pieces trying to get the alignment with a wing tube Bravo

Ray the dowel is 1/2" in old money Very Happy and only sticks out probably 1/2 at the most would take a colossal amount of force to break, the former with the hole would let go first i hope lol!

Thanks for the invitation John, I came to have a looksee and nice workmanship cheers That LE dowel needs a brass collar around it, you'll find out why if you don't. How far are you going with scale detail, F4C? and a must have, is a working siren.

Well the weather is still very bad so no flying affraid thankfully i have the Stuka to build, so for those looking in here is a little update

spent some time joining the wing up to get the dihedral correct,and then sheeting this is a very fiddly job and needs lots of patients but as come out a treat.

The ailerons and double flaps are something else,really fiddly and took a lot of felting before i was happy with them.











Just got the belly pan to do then its glassing time affraid
