 Grin Grin  my first mighty pictures cloudsters! Roll Eyes Roll Eyes  i started with the elevators and then moved on to the outer wing panels. first the elevators.  FSI has included a flying scale size and a small scale size pattern.  i chose the larger flying scale and had to build half the elevator and then flip it over to build the other half. i did extend some pieces so i would have portions of the unbuilt side to line it up when i flipped the one piece elevators over.  i then built up an airfoil as symmetrical as possible to give it depth and strength.  British naval camo is green (sea?) and various shades of grey.  Since i don't have that colour pallet I AM GOING CLOSE ENOUGH IS CLOSE ENOUGH.  you can see the result reclining on my favourite beverage.  I am overlaying pieces of green (crap dollar store garbage over a good quality grey tissue so the green won't tear upon landings.

next comes the wings.  the outer panels are easy enough.  i am changing the airfoil to a simpler CLARK Y because i know how to work with that.

the center panel is in four sections two mated to the outer wing panels and two fillet sections mated to the fuselage. then they are joined.  i will makw a one piece center panel which will be fitted to the central wing /fuselage box and then i will mate the two outer panels.  lets keep it as simple as possible.

 Roll Eyes  progress to report.  the Center section is now done or at least roughed in. The angled ribs show the large fillet that will mate to the fuselage and the fuselage box will side between the two center ribs.

Next the box will be built and the formers will then be fitted around that i will join the wing center section to the box first and fit the fillet formers to then mesh with the structure.


i built the center section like i did the elevators , first the right then moved it over to do the left side.

It's coming along nicely, Jim, I believe this will be the first VV in cheapskate camo that I've seen.

Are you going with white or light grey undersides?

Is that a Coors Light can that you have pressed into service ?
