Thanks for the updates.
For the CA, I'll use the ones from Deluxe Materials as I love their stuff.
I now have the carbon rods and the information I need to get started. Once I've finished the Acrowot kit that I'm part through, I'll start this.
Hopefully it'll be ready before we run out of summer!
Thanks for your help.
A couple more questions.
The kit supplied by RBCkits has the trailing edge cut from 4mm balsa rather than the 6mm specified on the plan. Is this a problem? Should I try to laminate the extra 2mm on?
Also, what type of glue do you recommend for the Carbon/ balsa and carbon/Carbon joints?
Yes, that makes sense now.
Ok. Thanks. I'll give a go.
Is the leading edge also 6mm so there is now no 4mm used?
A photo or sketch of the joint of the two rods would be really helpful as I still don't quite get it.
The kit has 4mm holes in the outer ribs as per the published plan.
This looks great and the kit of parts has now arrived. You mentioned possibly using all 6mm rods in the article. Do you recommend that as it will be a pain enlarging all the holes in the ribs and getting them correctly centred.
Also, how are you fixing the rods when two meet side by side? It's difficult to tell from the photos or plan.
