Sorry, clarification - I still intended to cap the spar joint with a CF wrap, it was the front to back section of the 2 rib sections I was electing to omit capping. Thanks for the catching my lack of detail on that quick update

I have some good scale documentation that came with the kit and could send to you.

Haven't test flow it yet, maybe this summer
And when I see what you did with that kit I kick myself for selling it. Nice work.

Re: Hawker Sea Fury - Scratch!

Finally, after a long break of other stuff, I'm finally back at this build again!
Couple hours worth of work last night, I've got the forward dihedral brace attached, and I've started carving the aileron formers.
Not sure if I mentioned this previously, but last fall I acquired a new piece of shop equipment - small bench top belt & pad sander. Got it from Busy Bee tools in Barrie, this thing is a gem for mass producing the same part. Stacked a bunch of balsa together with a template on top, crank it up, and let the sawdust fly. I made 6 identical aileron formers in less that 2 mins.
Once the dihedral formers are dry, they will get sanded appropriately. Then, leading edge will be started. Because it's a semi-symmetrical foil, the LE is being made in 3 pieces, then sanded to match the profile. Quick and easy. After that, landing gear blocks will receive their appropriate amount of CF tape and respective blind nuts for the retract units. And of course, keep plugging away at ailerons and flaps. Hopefully get a bunch more done next week on days off. Maybe...

Re: Hawker Sea Fury - Scratch!

I had a quick look at their site as P/A does not show anything along those lines. That's aboot the last bit of shop gear I could fit right now, (lathe and Bridgeport aint gonna work on carpeting anyway, even if the wife allowed). Only combo I could see with the disc was $800! A bit much.

Re: Hawker Sea Fury - Scratch!

Gary,

I've had a benchtop 4"x36" belt and disk sander that I bought for $40 used a decade ago and it has worked fine, as long as you don't "torque down" on the belt instead of using a coarser grit of sand paper to remove the wood as fast as you want; otherwise you risk shredding the belt.
There is a dust collection take off for the belt to a 2.15" shopvac hose but none for the disk.

Here is one example of the unit; it has been sold for a couple of decades under various house brands and you can currently find it on online used sale for $60 to $75.

Here is a thread on rcgroups discussing belt/disk sanders:

good luck

Re: Hawker Sea Fury - Scratch!

Hey Gary,
http://www.busybeetools.com/products...sa-ct170n.html
This is what I have. 1"*30" belt, 5" round disc. Not much bigger than a bench grinder. Heavy duty construction, metal body, metal arm (with plastic door). My only complaint is the slots on the decks for the belt & disc are quite large, it looks like someone cut them out with a sawzall, and the back brace on the belt (whatever you call the thing that the belt slides along at deck level) is kinda lobsided, whether it is a bad brace or bad drilling, I just shimmed it with thin washers to get it even.
For $115 bucks, its pretty darn good.

Re: Hawker Sea Fury - Scratch!

Where is the best place to buy lightweight, inexpensive fiberglass cloth? Canadian Tire has 32oz cloth, I think it's pretty heavy, its going to be used as backing for flaps, and gear doors.

"32 oz cloth" ..... wow, that's very heavy and I suspect a misprint.

Depending on the scale of the plane, you likely want something around 2 oz/sqyd cloth, as .75 oz stuff is usually for covering and 6 oz stuff is usually for cowling, heavy duty reinforcement.

Also check out www.thunderboltrc.com for good prices.

good luck
