StrangeBird 28''
« on: March 31, 2008, 00:12:08 AM »
Ok this kit has been with me for quite some time, but i decided to bring it here and here and finally start to build it.

I will not show the supposed final aspect of it, so that way if i do some mistake no one will notice.  8)

Starting to assemble the wing frame.


All the parts of the wing frame.


Build of the nose, yes this plane has a nose too.


Detail of the nose, those two parts on the photo will hold the third one that is mean to give support to the nose wheel. Steerable!


Side nose covering, some thin balsa is used to cover the sides. On those holes will pass a CF tube and the servo wires.


Final look of it today. Still alot to be done.


During the transpost to Ireland some weaker parts got broken. :( So i had to improvise and fix them.


Oh, and the rudder. I started by building this one and i almost forgot the photo of it. Well actually is the vertical stab because there will be no rudder on this plane.
