      Gday guys,after looking at some of the works of art you are making 'amazing stuff'; I decided to have a go at building one myself.
      My chev and chopper are temporarily on hold while im getting hooked on building with wood.
      This is all scratch built from balsa , I only have a rudimentry plan which I found on " theplanpage.com "
      My scratchbuilding skills are not up to the standard of you guys ,but im getting better,therefore the detail wont be as much as some of the models on here but ill do as much as my patience and skills allow .
      Cheers
      Chris.

    If you would like more detailed plans - email me. I know there were plan copies shown in past Camel posts but I can't locate them in forums or the gallery. Maybe I could email them to you if you would like.

    Hi Chris, It looks like you've built some flying models. Sometimes it seems a shame to cover their framework. Here is one I built quite a while back. I scaled up the 3 view drawing in a book, and used photos and a Revell 1/72 model to help with curves and textures. It actually did fly, but is at present in a crunched condition in a box.

    If you could send me some info, I would appreciate it. I am making the Expo kit. What material covers the body? Thanks...

    The fabric I used is Coverite Fabric; unfortunately they have discontinued the OD color so I used Natural and painted the Green. You will need an iron to apply and get the iron fabric "sock" as well. Be careful not to stretch the fabric too much for it can warp the wings. Once I was finished since I only covered one side I CA'ed the perimeter edge of the fabric to the wood support. This assures the fabric from breaking loose in the future since the contact area is small.

    Why did you only do the top of the wings? I have never used Coverite Fabric. is this a staple at any hobby shop?

    Only half was covered per client request so that from top left side view it appears as a covered aircraft and from the lower right view one can see all the construction details.

    As for the Coverite it depends upon how well stocked the store is, look for one that has RC aircraft and they usually would carry it.

    Here is a link; http://www.coverite.com/covering/covq0301.html

    I used what is now called the "Cream" used to be Natural but also discontinued. Explore this site for the other items you need.
