Ailerons and flaps roughly fitted. Will cover wing and control surfaces seperately. Knuckle joints beefed up with old snake outer.

It's rough out there, half a wing done. Had to make a solid balsa encasement to hold the flap servos.

Thanks cymas, not sure if it's Russians chasing Americans or vice versa.

The end is in sight, details parts of covering done. The rest tonight. I do not enjoy doing wing tips in film, the finish so far is not very neat.

Just off to watch the mighty Mariners chance their luck at Exeter FC. Fingers crossed.

Wing covered. Boy was I not wrong about the football. Last 40 minutes down to 10 men and I don't think the ball went into their half after that. Our keeper was world class, Exeter fans must have left the ground in disbelief. Up the Mariners.

Nice build. Why reinforce the hinges?

Thanks Rich too,

The hinges were a bit bendy and because the hinge centre stood out quite a bit to get the correct pivot point there was too much flex. The little bit of snake outer added a lot of stiffness. As I'll have large deflections on the surfaces they needed to be strong.

In reality I should have been patient and ordered some of the heavy duty Robart versions which would have been better.

Almost finished, just need to add some more decoration.

The under the skin bits are temporary tattoos which after a coat of Johnsons Klear should be fine.

I used some old Revell 1/32 F14 plastic kit underwing fuel tanks cut in half to make the 2 of the servo shrouds.

Interesting build and useful ideas.

Did the finished article perform as required?
