Default Nov/Dec - Norm - BMS

OK I'm in . . I think Not sure how I'll go on time.

I've been at it for 11 months now, I guess that makes me Norm, does it?

I'm going to have a go at modelling on of my Radio Control Gliders . . but without the stickers! My son wanted the stickers on it.

Not sure if I should start with the wing or not

Cheers
Paul

It'll look cool with the translucent wings showing how they are constructed.
good luck

if it's radio controled, I'd like to suggest making the radio controller to go with it as well.

Looking forward to it!

Oh no, that's like 2 Challenges in one :headbang: but I will try.

I have a mate of mine that I fly with and he's seen the model in flight before. I'm not going to tell him I'm building a 3D version of it and I'm going to make a Match move video of it in flight and see if he realises it isn't real!

Cheers

If I'm also going to be making the radio control, this would be it!

Man that's like two present-day object! I will aim at completing the Model first and then if time permits I will model my Futaba Radio.

Thanks magicsy, I'm still not sure how I will do parts of it but it should come out good if it all works out.

Cheers

The wing is pretty much complete with the exception of the film covering and balsa wood texture. I also need to add the push rods and horns underneath the Ailerons. Its 1 pm here and I feel like I need a nap

I might make the cutout on the fuselage for the wing next.

Covered the Wing last night and added Dihedral to the wing. I'll do the V-Tail next and then the fuselage.
