This plane will be very scale to the drawings
How come you are not using Epoxy resin.
No smell and it comes in various curing times.
Very easy to use and can`t go wrong with the mix.
It sands much easier than Fiberglass and is cheaper per quantity used.
Less itching
Just a thought.
Your part turned out very nice.
Can`t wait to see the final results.

Good Job

Re: Re-starting Avro Arrow build

Hi Ralph

For those who want to see Jets again in Zone G we have formed "Ottawa Valley Jets" and have arranged a NEW Turbine event to be held at the Carp Airport next to Ottawa - The event is set for Saturday July 2nd 2016.

PS: I did my Air Cadet Glider course at Mountainview the best summer of my life!

Re: Re-starting Avro Arrow build

I use the polyester to make the moulds mostly due to cost. One gallon of epoxy costs me around $140.00 I think, haven't purchase one kit since last year, but 5 gallons of polyester costs around $115.00 plus the hardener. I have been using polyester for over two decades and I'm quite comfortable using it. The smell is the only real downside for me. I do use epoxy to make parts though. When I was making kits, I would use polyester but upon request, I use epoxy., but the customer would pay the cost difference, depending on what was wanted.

Re: Re-starting Avro Arrow build

OVJ President Brent Norman just put this together

I have also created a Ottawa Valley Jets Group Page. I like the format of it, and it's a lot easier to view and see what is happening.


https://www.facebook.com/groups/534359140057478/


Please post away in there and let all of your friends know about it!




Cheers


Brent

Re: Re-starting Avro Arrow build

Just finished pulling the plugs out of the moulds. Had to wait for my neighbor as he was quite interested in seeing the process. They all popped out as hoped. The one that was the stubbornness was the turtle deck as both ends are closed and at 90 degrees, so not much play. They all need a clean up and some gelcoat touch ups, but all in all, very happy with them.

Next one will be the vertical fin. I have to order more resin from L.A., as there is no fiberglass supply house any closer, so will wait until the 5 gallons arrive before starting.

Re: Re-starting Avro Arrow build

Not feeling great today, but trying to keep to my schedule. Cleaned up the moulds that are made, dressing up the edges so they are not sharp, that way they will not chip easily. Also, when the plug was pulled out, about a six inch strip of the edge chipped away, so made a dam with tape and filled it with fresh gelcoat. Tonight after everything is cured hard, will finish sand everything and drill the holes for the screws and wing nuts that will clamp the halves together.

Re: Re-starting Avro Arrow build

Don't drink so much the night before its called a "hangover " like the movie
Best cure for a hangover is the smell of fresh polyester resin

LOL

Re: Re-starting Avro Arrow build

Going to take a couple of days off from the Arrow and get my new Mig-25 finished up so I can test fly it by Wednesday morning. Yes, it's a foamie, but it is a jet 😎

Re: Re-starting Avro Arrow build

I've always loved the Arrow. I too would be interested in a kit at some point, but since my skills are not up to flying something like that at this point, I can be low on the list
