well i chucked it all together this afternoon and started on the wing struts.

bit of a fiddly job, but having a one piece lower wing helped no end.

one side bodged up and now ready to be finished off.

will do the other side tomorrow, just got to get both sides the same. eeeep.

we plod on slowly.

aiming for an end of march finish... i hope

"N" struts made, just need to pin the joints and sand to profile.

I can now get the aileron servo's fitted and working, well i would but my spectrum rx is not working.

i will use an orange one to set everything up while i save for a new spectrum rx.

You have done a great job Tony, a really impressive scale model. Completed weight will be very interesting, also if you have to make any adjustments for c of g. I have deliberately avoided Depron on this build, so we can make some finished weight comparisons. There is a lot of Depron in the Chipmunk, so at some point that will be interesting as well. The 100% switch from balsa to Depron on the Super Marauder reduced finished weight by about 1/3rd.

"N" struts are made from balsa, using the brass supplied.

Even though i have used a fair amount of Depron in my build, i expect the weight will be about the same as the all balsa ones.

mainly because of all the 3d printed details i have added.

Ailerons are now all wired in and working.

I plan to start covering the upper wing panels tomorrow, if i get the chance that is.

still not sure on how to work the elevators yet, i will have to put my thunking cap on.

Fantastic work Tonny ¡

What type of glue had you used for attaching the paper? I suppouse must be compatible with the depron you had used in the model.

At the moment I`d been unable to source some dope in my side of europe (restrictios on shipping). I ordered some from Retromodeller but cancelled the order due shipping restrictions.
