OK guys, here we go, slowly, deathly slowly, snore  Roll Eyes

Lots of wood to cut out, lots of room to do stuff like cockpit, Vailly has detailed instructions on scale hinging, so I think (hope) it'll be fun....

Let the ragging begin  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I took the plans (3 sheets roughly 4x10 each)  to Chris's Kwik Kopy in Burnside. I didn't want to cut up all 3 sheets to get templates of the 50 odd pieces I need to cut out, so his shop made a copy of the drawings.  Super job and very well priced.  Smiley

I'm going to double everything up - need a former #6, so I'll cut 2 of them; need 2 rib #15's so I'll make 4. Once I'm done I'll have 2 kits...  Wink

I understand there's a learning curve for scroll saws so I bought a package of 36 blades  Tongue Should get me through the fuse formers at least...

Let me be the First, to Congratulate (Rag) you on this fine choice of kit...(where's the pics?)
The 2 pages of Kit specs, are impressive... Roll Eyes certainly takes me back to the old Technical Drawing workshop at Cosford, where everything was hand drawn then Blue copied.. Sad

Sorry Finger's you're right, you need to but the sierra's, because they have the right amount of "twist" in them to drop in the stock locations and be lined up correctly when in the up and down positions.

If you ask real nice I'll let you look at mine, maybe you could fabricate/ modify a set of robart or others to work

I remember reading about a guy that had designed something similar in Model Airplane News.

I don't think this is the guy because I thought he was Canadian but it's another website

http://www.artus-motor.com/en/artus-v12-motor/

Oh and Sandy this is a 12.  No excuses you have to buy now   Grin
