Re: Really Giant Scale Hurricane

Nice thing about full scale, if you're off a mm or two, no one will ever know! lol Picked up the clear pine I need for the aft spars, largest two are laminated 1X4s, then the ones near the trailing edge are 1X3. I'll screw the sets together, figure out the bevel cuts I'll need to do, and then cut on the table saw. Minimal sanding that way.

Re: Really Giant Scale Hurricane

Got the aft spars in today, super tight fit, bit nerve-wracking, but all good in the end. Also started cutting and installing the stringers. On a real aircraft, they'd essentially be for the riveting of the skin. With ply skins, it gives more surface area for glue, and gives sufficient strength between the ribs we won't hurt anything by walking on it, once she's glassed.

Re: Really Giant Scale Hurricane

Door? Oh crap. Nope, won't fit, but I do have a chainsaw, and not for the wing! Fortunately, there is a garage door! lol

Re: Really Giant Scale Hurricane

Need some input, as to what to tackle next, the fuselage, or outer wings. Any thoughts???

Re: Really Giant Scale Hurricane

Nice work!! Wings strong enough to walk on?! That would be a sin!

Will you make the fuselage one piece? And the wings?

I wish I lived a little closer as I would love to be able to help build the plane.

What a project!!

Re: Really Giant Scale Hurricane

The fuse will be built as per the original, except a wood box frame, with attached bulkheads, vice steel tube. Wings are 3 piece, as per the original. Trying to keep it as scale as possible, as it will be in a museum. I could certainly use a few extra hands for sure!

Re: Really Giant Scale Hurricane

It's insanely simple, assuming you've got some basic lofting skills. I've got tons of documentation on the Hurricane, from the museum, as well as Hurricane Restorations in the UK, plus a few sets of Hurricane plans, and the Mick Reeves 1/4.5 kit and plans to work from, so makes life way easier. Being a static only aircraft has it's benefits as well, attention shifts from all the structural/maintenance side, to appearance, and economy of building. A $10,000 budget is fine for this project, be more like $100,000 for a flyable all-wood Hurricane, and a 4-5 year timeframe to complete.
