Great progress José Luis

There is quite a lot of scrap wood that can be stripped and re-used isn't there?

Cheers

Thanks guys.

Some progress…...Prepared the ply parts for the fuse. Trial fited both formers and ply sides. Marked the sub-formers positions on both sides noting the diference betwen the left and right. Once satisfied glued the formers and ply reinforcements on the right side. I usually mark the sides and put back to back to avoid doublé side síndrome.

Taking note of the advise of Danny I had made anew F1, 50 grams less tan the ply one.

Some pics….

This is the former F3 included in the kit. This is OK for the Mk1 model but Will be changed for the Spanish Fury. That big hole in the middle must go because I´m going to fix the landing gear to this as a cantiléver one.

Next pic. Checking the parts over the side panels.The position of the side formers has been marked inside and out.

Yes.
I have been looking at the plan the last months and think I have It fully sorted but today looking at the top/bottom view i have discovered the horizontal parts that run alongside the fuse.

If !

Today. I enlarged the top holes in F11. As the fuse tapers to the tail you must slot the stab support into F11 and later insert the lot betwen the longuerons that protrudes at the end of the sides.

Next I made all the cross parts that go betwen the sides, marked the center on the parts and aligned the fuse over the plan. F11 is hanging in the air. Pinned and weighted the fuse and glued the cross parts. This afternoon I'll glue the diagonal ones.

Well. Work continues.

Finished adding the diagonals to both sides, er…, top and bottom, but no in the end of F10-F11.

Today lifted the fuse from the table, fixed F11 to the longerons. Glued the stab support giving their angle. Glued the bottom part and added the 6 mm (1/4 " that Will support the bottom hinge of the rudder.

Also added F1 and the motor support. Tomorrow I`ll add some triangle stock in the motor mount, F3 and F4.

Looking at the plan at F7 I have added a 3/16" cross over balsa behind the longeron at the base (You see this on the bottom view of the fuse). This piece Will support the underside longuerons.

Some pics.

Hi Danny.

Yes , installing the last diagonals was a lot of fun, …….

Today I changed the workshop from the garaje to the main room……..

Begin preparing the 1/8" cross-grain that runs alonside the top of the fuse. Trued one Edge and used as a spacer for gluing all the vertical semiformers outside of the box. Finished at F4. Glued F5 and F6. Once dry glued the cross-grain parts.

Also glued F7 and F8 and all the side subformers on the sides.

Also glued the cross-grain sheet on the lower part of the fuse. Tomorrow I`ll prepare the botom side stringers in 3/16" sheet and add the remaining top formers.

For working on both sides I supported the fuse in

This is the balsa part I added behind the stringer at the end of the wing for supporting the stringers.

Today, Prepared the croos grain for the wing saddle, aligned and glued. Also prepared from the scrach balsa the 3/16" longerons that go alongside of the main box from F7 to F10.

Using a sharpened brass tube drilled the base of the tail for the tailwheel.

I discovered that I have put too hight the side formers at F10, so cut and reglue them.

Marked the contour on the cross grained 1/8" using pins and a balsa stick as a ruler. Glued the top side sticks in F7 and F11. Once glued I put in their location F9 and F10. Once fixed I added all the top stringers.

Sanded all the croos grain sheets and side strips.

hpim1525.jpg

Drilling the hole for the tailwheel.

hpim1526.jpg

Top stringers and botton longeron and wing saddle sheet.

hpim1528.jpg

All the side sheets sanded Note the wrong F6 former. I`ll add a slice of balsa prior to sheeting.

hpim1529.jpg

saddle sheet and bottom longeron- I have reglued a few tonges of the side formers broken during the sanding process.

I`ll add the side longerons and sheet the fuse. The bottom Will be without longerons until the radio installation is finished.

Any one knows the side of the tailwheel of the restored Fury?

Thanks.

JL

Hi .

Not too much to report on the model. Weekend dedicated to other things.

As I had not fitted the top formers in the nose área. When I shaped the side of the croos grain 1/8" sheet i didn`t appreciate the diference betwen the top formers and the side formers. Today I glued the top formers and reshaped the side formers adding a slice of 1/82 sheet.

hpim1530.jpg

While I was waiting for the glue I prepared the formers that Will be part of the wing with the cabane struts and the hardwood bearers. I tack glued both with White glue and drilled in the pillar drill.

hpim1531.jpg

hpim1532.jpg

Also planning on cockpit detail…….Where are my instruments?

hpim1534.jpg

Not the correct uniform, but correct scale.

Cheers.

José Luis
