Ah stringers, dozen or more. Fun, attach one to a former, advance. Are you using CA?

Before CA we used Ambroid, friction fit and hope it would hold. Wait, dry - move on. The last Guillows I built, I used exclusively CA. Went so much faster but not popular with some.

I did use super glue , I also used Sigment around the edges of the wings to help hold down the Monokote , I buy the little tubes of super glue at Harbor Freight

Major issue for us really old old timers George.  Same reason why I don't buy green bananas, I may not be around when they ripen.  Same for glue, I might not be around when it drys.  Smile Smile

But, the P-38 went together mostly using Tite-bond or equilivent.  Same for the "Silver Lining" and it's small friends.

I'm thinking about building a universal 1/2A model to test engines with.  Schetched it out a few days ago.

I think that Joe's ME109 might be a bit more complex. Smile

Bob, in older age we gain patience. We set the drying aside, work on something else, then come back to it again for the next phase.  Lighting The Tree  Very Happy

I couldn't help but notice the upturned Sterling Nieuport 28 C/L kit box with your usable balsa scraps in it. Very Happy

I love that kit George, and the plane in it. I built two and have one NIB. I had two NIB kits but gave one to one of the Jims here years ago.

Eager to see a picture Joe. Why a used drier sheet, more flexible? I use Downey, perhaps not the best for an elevator hinge.

Eric , you were correct, it is going to bee a control line airplane. That’s why I’ve beefed it up . Hopefully a black widow will fly it , if not I’ll put a norvel .061 in it

Post  944_Jim Fri Dec 29, 2023 10:10 am

I'm digging this build. I missed where the bellcrank and lead-out guide are going.

For what it's worth, there is a guy on FB that built several 400 series around Cox .049s. I messaged him asking about his engine choices. I was surprised when he mentioned he was using the smalls...I expected .09s.

He did indicate they did fine for Roundie-Roundie. If I remember correctly, his name is Michael Halbrook. He has pictures of several 1/2A conversions in his albums and in threads. I can double-check later today if it helps. I think some are in the Guillows group. This can be checked later today if it helps.

Guillows ME 109 C/L Build 1d705d10 here is where the bell crank is located. I will get a pic of the leaf outs when I get home. Thanks for the info on the u control stuff . I have the 400 series spitfire set up as rudder and elevator only with an increased dihedral. I have flown it yet .
