Looking good DD. When is the maiden due?

Looks a bit like chocolate.

Looking at how you have hinged the flap the hinge line is below the flap leading edge which will produce a slightly slotted flap action. Not a problem as far as the way the flap works but it might make it awkward in getting the nacelle fairing to slide inside it self just takes a little jiggery pokery...smiley

Thanks for info on narcelle.

It's ok Paul. I haven't glued the hinges in yet. Flap is flush when I push them back in.

Hi Paul, what I am trying to say have i removed enough abs material from the mould. i.e. its around 40mm deep where the ruler is, do I need to remove more material so that the nacelle is not so deep.

Sorry, I should have posted a photo. Here it is.

Dwain,Paul ,

I have just started cutting out the nacelle lower moulding. How far (measured at the l/e of the flap)down from the bottom of the wing does the moulding extend mine seems an awful lot. Not sure if I have cut enough away when shaping it to the wing contour . Hope you understand what I am trying to describe.

I wonder why they left the hex bit on the driver. I thought about removing it on my lathe.

21/07/2017 20:42:27

Progress. Wings are joined. I didn't have any aircraft tape Paul so I made do with masking tapesmiley.

Dwain, what did you use for the wing fairing? Was it the half inch triangle strip?


If we need to ream the prop to allow for the hexagonal bit on the prop driver there won't be much left of the prop boss. Any comments

Thank you flight1.

Thank you Martin. That's what I thought.

what is the difference between epoxy glue and epoxy laminating Resin. I want to join a pair of foam wings. Would Iit be ok to use the laminating resin with the fibreglass bandage. Will it be strong enough?

Thought I would show some progress on the 3rd bf110.

I haven't done it before as you and Dwain have made such an excellent job of it.img_5213.jpgimg_5212.jpgimg_5214.jpg

Paul, I think that you may need a little more tape to hold those wings together or I can see them clapping hands.😀😁😬

15/07/2017 15:18:34

Hi Paul,

Trust that you threaded enough cables through the wing before you join them. Four in each panel. Just checking.

I reckon that Richards little helpers told you to do it that way.

just been out to the workshop to check out the gorilla glue and it worked well. Just have to cut out the other narcelle molding now and make it look the same. (Thanks the one problem with twins, two of most things and ensuring they have been built as opposites.)

I think I will go the same as Dwain and make the bottom of the narcelle removable, Just in case repairs etc are needed.

Richard - can you check your inbox as I have sent a message.

Graham , I used epoxy originally but now I am converted to Gorilla glue !

You just wet one side and then apply a very thin smear to the other . It grows you see .

Seems to stick everything .


I have some but I wasn't sure whether it would melt abs..I'm going to give it a try once I have scraped off the modellers glue.
