First winter build 2016. Buzzard Bombshell.

Post  duke.johnson on Sun Nov 27, 2016 9:15 pm

Another local RC club is having a Winter Build Challenge. Build a plane from scratch or kit and then fly it at fly in event at their field in the spring.

I recently picked up a 70% Buzzard Bombshell with a Cox .09 RC TD. Just started today. Should be fun.

I do have a question, if someone has built one of these. How do the wing tips fit up?  I'd assume the leading edge of the tip centers on the leading edge of the actual wing.  But unsure where to glue the trailing edge of the tip. Got any idea? Got pictures of your Buzzard Bombshell?

Duke,

I usually come to this group to ask my questions, but for that particular plane, I'd go over to RCG and ask on their Vintage & Old Timer board: https://www.rcgroups.com/vintage-and-old-timer-designs-209/ . One of the best resources for building and flying vintage designs that I've found.

Thanks. I'm into free flight, so I dig these models. I'm converting to RC.
