Wing Panels:

Tail Panels:

Fuselage:

Servo’s and Rudders:

Hinging the elevators: you can do 3 ways

  • use both the factory made EPO hinges of elevators + additional Pivot Hinges(pictures below)
  • trimm-off elevators and drill/glue the Pivot hinges only
  • make them just like flap/ailerons construction of this F-18 (with 4-5 ultrathin hinges on top of surface of each elevator panel)

Finish:

Glassing:

glassing is done with 1x 25 gramm glass tissue painted onto the Foam with PU-EPO . Complete model must be sanded light with 150-180 paper to turn shiny surface to matte (to get perfect grip for the glass coating) .

When 2 companies have spend so much time in this ‘2-stage design project’ than you can expect a very special kit. Continue reading
