Curves? Monokote!

How would you cut the curve patterns out of monokote for the Kiwi scheme Extra? I'm thinking the best way is to make a template from plastic or cardboard and use that as your guide?

Hi Ken,

I have always seen templates made up by the pro's. Keeps everything the same on both sides of the airplane.
I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.

Smile Re: Curves? Monokote!

I have done a couple of curve schemes and what i did was make up a template with regular paper, scan the image into the computer and then using whatever imaging program comes with your computer to reverse the pic so you have pieces for either wing then i would trace it onto a piece of cardstock and tape it to the covering and cut it out. Pretty cumbersone i know but i'm low tech!!!! My wife just picked up what looks like a soldering iron but with some needle point tips, curved and straight, it is advertised as a stencil cutter so i'm thinking rather than using an exacto to cut out the pattern i might try using a needle tip and melt it instead.

Hope this helps..
