Big Build?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
OK Guys;

I have a BIG Question on building BIG Airplanes

I would like to start building 50cc size AC – the construction is stick and sheeted foam.

Stick construction I can do, Gluing foam to Balsa I can do, shaping Balsa I can do.

The thing that scares the heck out of me is the placement of the Wing Tubes and the need for the ‘Perfect Alignment’ of the Wings.

I am looking for a Tutorial on 50cc construction and Wing Installation / Alignment.

Does anyone know where I can go to find out how to do this?
Life is either a daring adventure...
...or nothing.

Re: Big Build?

This forum is a good place to start. Have you looked at "Giant scale aircraft"?

Re: Big Build?

Check out some builds by TBrum in the Giant Scale section. He's an artist with Carden kits and they are all foam cored wings.
