1/3 scale Ka1/Ka3 combo
« on: January 26, 2017, 22:59:55 PM »
to quote baldrick, 'i have a cunning plan......!'  rudolph kaiser designed and built the ka1 and ka3 gliders to use the same wings and v-tail, so why not do the same thing in model form?

fred has already done the ka3 as a kit in 1/3 sc and the ka1 in 1/4 sc so if he did the ka1 in 1/3 sc you could have 1 set of wings and tail and
2 fuselages for 2 different models.

i know he has been working on the plans of the ka1 for some time, so hopefully the kit will be available soon.

in the meantime, i've started building the ka3, tail first, on the wings at the moment and the fuse next week.  unfortunately, for some reason my photos won't load up.

can anyone suggest how i can solve this problem?

regards,

gb

Looking forward to see it :)
And hopefully will get time to cut the Ka1! (at work 20hrs a day these days  >:( >:( )

What is the error you are getting for the photos?

I tried and it looks OK (see below, just received photos of a completed Ka3 in Italy  :-* )

hi fred,
i wrote my few words as above and then tried to add photos from my photo file but nothing appeared in the preview box.

i took the photos with my camera phone, would that be the problem?

Hmm, that's strange, all working fine for me.

Can you try a photo from a website, maybe save the one above, and put it on your post as we know that one works if you see what I mean. Maybe a size issue (too big, I think there is a limit on top of my head, but that limit is quite high if I remember).

Anyway, first Ka1 should be cut tomorrow :) Files are ready  :D
