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)

At some point the Russians planned to put Russian engines in there hurricane's because of the poor stream of replacement engines and parts from the UK due to the German sub's attacking ships.It never came that far.

Guess they had octane booster ?

10/03/2018 22:56:37

Yes Phil,i hope for the pilot and gunner that the sun 's out in september..As for the canope , i do need the front part and i will cut carefully LOL !

It's not the enemy right ?They flew together with the English to fight the Germans...

Hi Mr Pete,you have no idea.....

28/07/2016 09:44:11

Better get to work then !

if not by september ,i'll come back in october

Hi Andy, I know what you mean ,and if i would live near the coastal slopes in Wales it would never cross my mind to electrify it (her).

but as flat as it is here,i would have to keep her most of the time on the ground and that's a waste too.

but no worries,the PSS-one isn't going to be touched,i'll just make a second fuse out of the mold....or more if someone wants one.

cheers , Dirk.

Hi Pete ,thanks for replying,looks that you know your way arround with edf.

Just thinking about what to do with the lack of exhaust area.I have a solution in mind but that would result in an oval instead of a round opening.Would that be a waste of time in your opinion ?

I could make the outer shell hinged and opening mixed with the trottle or something like that...just tell me if thats to much theorie

Cheers , Dirk
