Idea of a model for Cox Tee Dee 0.051 and ...Medallion 0.049!Flight

Post  MauricioB on Wed Jun 21, 2017 12:09 am

Well, I finally decided .... I like many models that are on the web and I like to build them ... I was hanging around until finally I decided to make something.
I like 0.010, 0.020, 0.049, 0.051 .... mmmm all Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy ! And then I go for a model that can use one of these engines and changing the centering, it will be possible to replace the engine and place another and give me the pleasure to use one and another ..within 0.049 / 0.051.... well.
I am choosing some parts of the Dee Bee, stabilizer, rudder and profile and I started to draw a simple fuselage but at the same time I was nice.
Here I leave some photos of the beginning ...... let's see what results from all this !? RC Plane

This time I decided to make a wing in foam plated in raft.
About 20 years ago, it manufactures an adjustable source with a nicron arc, precisely to cut telgopor - foam.
Then start the templates to squared the foam and cut the wings ....

Once the profile is cut, I change the rib template, by a straight cut template, this is to accommodate the leading edge and the trailing edge ....

Finally a few magazines will make enough weight to hold the firm sandwich waiting for the glue to cure - dry!

The wing looks great so far.
Is there any particular reason for using white glue instead of epoxy?

Thank you! ... you have to try the ideal temperature point of the wire and then it comes to practice. Smile

Thank you! ... Yes, the use of glue "carpenter's glue" instead of epoxy has many advantages, it is very easy to apply, and when the curing begins, it begins to evaporate the excess, leaving only the necessary between the parts to paste , Is extremely strong and while you do the work you have time to move as many times as you need until you are sure of the correct location of the parts.
If you use epoxy, all the material you put there, will remain and will not evaporate, therefore generating an extra weight.
Make me friend that the carpenter's tail is an extraordinary and old glue checked its result.
The epoxy glue used only to glue the center of wings, to "fill even some extra pore between the parts.

Many thanks !, the foam here known as telgopor, the one I am using is medium density.
According to the merchant these are the characteristics:
Low density (common) = 11 kg / m3
Medium density = 20 kg / m3 (this is the one I am using in this work) Thumbs Up

Eric, my friend !, thanks for your message ... that's right, I'm doing two models simultaneously, I have some engines that I would like to use, and I really like these small models, I enjoy doing them - building, flying and observing them as a collector's piece , As the years pass each one of these pieces will bring me memories and that makes me well !.
It is a pleasure for me to share with you my friend and with CEF friends! Beer Cheers

Here it is at 10.45 am in the morning and just place the trailing edge and attack edges on each wing, now to wait for the drying. Although in an hour the glue (carpenter's glue) already makes a previous cure, I like to let stand for 24 hours, ensuring an extremely strong bond...
Cutting edge (leading and trailing edge):
