Thanks Ron\ said:Nice choice Ian. I've have a Guillows 3/4"- 1ft. Corsair on the go, off and on, for a while now....wing span 30"
I've built quite a few of these balsa model aircraft. The best advise I can give is get a piece of insulation board or something fairly soft bigger than your model and buy a load of plastic headed modelling pins. The key to success with these things is to keep the initial fuselage build flat, square and true. Sounds obvious, but once the fus. is complete and not enough care was taken at the start, any twist is impossible to get out and it might as well go in the bin!
Best of luck
Ian, use proper balsa glue. Be warned, it goes off very quickly, so no faffing about.....\ said:Thanks Ron
While I'm at it what's the best dope and glue to use ?
