Hey guys!

Work on the Chippy continues....

Finally shaped the wing tips, got all the flaps & ailerons done, and all the other bits I needed to do before covering.

The Chipmunk was originally built with metal wings as far back as the main spar, behind the spar it was fabric covered. It wasn't til later that the wings were completely metal covered.

So I will cover the open bays with fabric, I use cover rite, I really like this stuff it's very forgiving (very appreciated especially the way I cover) I also use an additional adhesive called Cover Grip to help the fabric stick.

I masked off the areas where the fabric is to go to keep my cover grip application tidy

I then ironed on the cover rite and added the rib stitching tape I got from Gary @ Get Stencils

And then used Eze-Kote to seal the wood surfaces where its supposed to be metal skinned and then started laying 1.0oz fibreglass cloth down with Eze-Kote

Re: Jerry Bates 1/4 Scale deHavilland Chipmunk

Hi Chris; how goes the build? I have obtained a copy of the Mike Smart plans for the Chipmunk and plan on starting a build for this. I was thinking about using a DLE 55 for power (maybe too much?).
