Re: Hostetler 30% Chipmunk

So I have the tail feathers completed except the sheeting ,I like to do all the sheeting together . My process is do all the framing ,then the hinging , then the mechanics , then I close things in with the sheeting .. I framed up the wing center section and have started laying out the right wing panel . I didn't like his system for adding the wing fillets after the whole plane was sheeted .the bulkheads were not cut to provide for wing fillets so I made new bulkheads that include the basic shape of the fillet . I don't know how with the layout on the plan that you could add the fillet in the correct location so better I change it up now .This is one big Chipmunk ..

Re: Hostetler 30% Chipmunk

The right wing is framed , I only needed to add a light ply doubler to the trailing edge of W5 , this area seemed very weak . The plane calls for only partial sheeting of the wing . I will be fully sheeting the plane and painting it ..

Re: Hostetler 30% Chipmunk

Have the top of the right wing sheeting done and am framing up the left. I guess because of the dihedral a wing tube would not work ..
