Guillows Cessna 150 build circa 1970 (Build Log)

Post  Cribbs74 on Mon Apr 30, 2012 11:21 pm

I find myself once again stuck in a hotel. This time for 30+ days so......instead of frittering away my time I decided to do a build.

A trip to a local hobby shop netted me a 1970 designed Cessna 150 of Paul K. Guillows fame.

I have framed out the fuse and the power plant of choice is a .020 Pee Wee with a Cox Ryan mount so I can run an external tank. 2 or 3 channels.....not sure.

Pictures as soon as Indra uploads them lol! I have no PC, only my phone.

Some kind of plastic like composite. It was provided in the kit for use with .020 power. Hope it works! Seems plenty strong.

yeah, in guillows kits they say the supplied firewall is not plywood but in some cases better than real plywood

Ok,

Here is the mock up, plenty left to do still. Not sure wether I want to go vertical or horizontal with the cylinder. Horizontal will be cleaner but it will barely extend out of the cowl.

Plug blanking tomorrow!

Negative good buddy..... I got caught up in the moment and was just enjoying the build. Tomorrow I will get serious and cut out and fill the control surfaces.

Good eye!

Day 3!

Plug blanking a la Kim Stricker style. Took me most of the day to do this and modify the cowl.

Tip for those who have never done a guillows mod, the cowls are very flimsy and will split easily! If you need to modify it make a pin hole and slowly enlarge to hole with sandpaper wrapped around a dowel or cylindrical tool. Anything else and you will surely be buying a replacement cowl.

Hopefully I will make moveable control surfaces tonight.

That is looking really good! I am suddenly feeling my first urge to but an .020 for a project like yours. I am anxiously awaiting the flight report and hopefully videos.

How does one "plug blank" or what ever have you a model? The better question is, how do you get yours looking so nice? Is it just trial and error, or is there some way to get the right sizes for the lil rectangles? Other then that, WOW LOOKIN GOOD MAN!
