Tell us more about the model seems well built. Why so heavy? Is it for outside flight?

weighs so much because it has more glue than wood i think! Glued every former couple times trying to cut stringer notches  :'( Plus i put white tissue behind decals which are white tissue run through printer. If you look at the plan it has wood density and sizes for indoor and outdoor. Mine is for outdoors.

12 grams will work just fine outdoors.  Go for it!

For your printed markings, color the back side of the white parts with a white colored pencil - makes them opaque and vibrant even when doped onto dark tissue.

Did you make your own canopy? I've got this plan but the canopy has been holding me off!

Yes i did from a water bottle! Just put your canopy plug in bottle and keep it wedged in tight and then use heat gun to shrink bottle around it. Take me 2 or 3 tries to get it right. As for trying this model, this was my second attempt at this one!

A trick for plunge molding canopies and spinners is to raise the mold/plug off the surface.  I've used a locking clamp and 1/4" dowel to hold the plug off the surface of the table.  Heat the plastic till it sags and then plunge it over the plug pulling it well over the plug/mold to avoid the creases the plastic makes at sharp corners.  Here's a link to show how I did it for spinners for my Dash 8 built a while back: Click Here

Your canopy looks great by the way!!!

Hi David,

Your Corsair is beautiful...

Im just preparing to build the same model, read the article and currently studying the plan. I have a few questions, hoping you could help clarify. Please see the attached photos.

The photo on the left is showing the former F2, F2A & F2B....in the right is showing the F2B, but its refering the bottom former connecting the wing saddle.

My question is, do i simple rotate the F2 and it becomes F2B?

Regards
