Thanks Steve,it didn't take that much time really.The hard part is that the foam gets really fragile when it is that thin.I'm hoping the cloth will strengten the whole. Succes with yours ,greetz

20180623_222137.jpg20180623_222230.jpgSome more work on the wing fairings.I cutted the front part of the leading edge away and added it to the fuse because the fairings were getting to thin at the front.Its a really nice fit !! Time is running !!20180623_222114.jpg

The black thing is spraypaint serving as a sanding guide so i don't sand the sheeting away. That would be big trouble

I did also marked the position of the nav.ligths.

When glueing on the tips , make sure the ply-part of the tip is in line with the aileron TE

To give the wingtips a little more support i sanded them flush with the false LE and then added the true LE20180609_004841.jpg

Hi all , i found that i need to twist the ailerons because of the build-in washout. Anyone the same idea ?Think i will go the amonia route?

I wanted to give the dihedral braces alittle more grip so i filled the area between the spars(first compartiments)with 3mm balsa946.jpg

946.jpg947.jpgHi,made the top sheeting today after installing all the electrics.

As for the washout , i madeup a wedge starting with 2mm at the tip going to zero at the end of the sidepanels(2degrees is about 2mm at the back of the tip)and tack-glued them under the TE.945.jpg

Following your build every day Phil,and it's a riddle to me how you keep everything so clean! I woudn't dare taking pic's of my building table !

With the april event coming up and two models to complete i will start the hurricane after. I hope i don't have to cut any structural parts of the fuse to go with the Russian version(open cockpits)
