This is how the wing was built!
To view a larger picture Click on the thumbnails and Enjoy your visit!
The wing is cut from 3" foam with a Hot wire. (I built my own
and can tell you how if you are interested just email me.)
I make the wing templets and then attach them to the foam with 2"
You can see the wing here just after it has been cut.
Then the area for the engine pods are cut and removed from the wing
and the pods
are glued in place. Also you can see 2 black tubes. These are the
throttle control tubes. The 2 red tubes are the aileron
control tubes. I use one servo to operate both engines. This wing is
now ready to be sheeted.
Note: A servo is a
motor that is used to move a control surface or the throttle on an
engine.I have used one servo to operate 4 throttles with no
problem on a C-130 I built in 1997. I still fly that model today.
Here you can see I have sheeted the wing and have completed
the right engine pod. After I complete the left pod I will
be ready to build the cowlings.
How the cowlings were made.
