Workshop Build-Along – Part 6 – Alien Aircraft ArrowMaster – From nose to tail!

Workshop Build-Along – Part 6 – Alien Aircraft ArrowMaster – From nose to tail!

Now that most of the fuselage construction has been completed, it’s time to tackle the nose section of the ArrowMaster. This is accomplished by using several pieces of 1/4 inch thick balsa glued between the firewall and the model’s spinner backplate. This is a tried and true modeling technique that works very well and makes for […]

Workshop Tips — Working with Laminated Parts

So, last night I finished the center cutout bow for the Camel’s top wing. In all, it took about 48 hours for the laminated balsa strips to fully dry and lock into a ridged lamination. Here’s how I incorporated the new formed part into the Sopwith’s wing structure. Last time, we left off with the […]

Incredible 40%-Scale Eindecker

Incredible 40%-Scale Eindecker

Sleek, sophisticated WW II fighters usually get more props than earlier era warbirds, but this 40-percent-scale Fokker E.1 may change your mind. Made famous by none other than Max Immelmann himself, the Eindecker had wing warping instead of ailerons, and the model demonstrates just how well they worked! Built by Gerhard Reinsch and flown at […]

Workshop Build-Along Alien Aircraft ArrowMaster Bipe 5 — Fuselage

One of the nice things about building a kit, is that you can make changes to the construction to suit your own tastes.

Soldering Made Easy — Dealing with Printed Circuits

Soldering things together takes all forms and sizes relative to our RC hobby. Back in the day, you needed to have the steady hands of an electronic tech guy to assemble entire RC transmitters from kits. Today most of the soldering chores deal with batteries and ESCs.
