Nan, toujours rien, juste decoupe les ailerons Pas le temps malheureusement, 12 hrs/jour au boulot en ce moment!  :!:  :!:  :evil:

Nothing done, only managed to cut out the ailerons! Too much work with 12h+ days at the moment!  :!:

Hi Fred

Started the Quark 2m, and so far may I say that this is a great model to build and quick to stick together. I have had no problems yet with the plan except I had to put extra ply at the fuselage joints for strength, this was due to the cnc cutter, I think. I like the new tail design, which saves a lot of time during the building process.


All parts cut out and checked against the plans.

All the formers, lined up perfect except C5, however a little triming and everything was fine.


Checking the formers before adding the other fuselage side.

The two sides of the fuselage are now added and supported with rubber bands before any glue is applied. As I said, this is a great model to build, all this done in less than 2 hours WoW!


Less than 2 hours work, i am starting to like this build already!

Next I need to add the top and bottom sheeting and start on shaping the nose, keep you all updated soon!

Happy Days

Hmmm, it certainly looks like an nice easy build. Well, so far anyway. (Didn’t know you wore spectacles JP, could it be that you’re getting old!!! :roll: )

With all this building activity on the forum I’m beginning to feel a bit ‘left out’. :(

I might have to buy something new to play with :?: ………………maybe a 2mtr Quark. 8)

Another bit done tonight on the Quark2m,



All formers glued and the bottom sheeting applied.

The next step was to mount the bell crank for the elevator, I had no 4mm tubing at hand therefore I used some metal rods with a plastic cover which I had spare, It proved to be perfect and the system work well.


I used a push rod to connect to the bell crank, an old way to connect control surfaces.

I decided at this stage to build the elevators, again a simple process due to a good design.



The elevators can be removed for transport.




A quick check to see if all is o.k., yes works perfect!

I finished the top sheeting and give the fuselage a good sanding down and removed all the rought edges. Next I will build the cover and add the nose than sand the edges round  and smooth.



Build so far, looking good I think :?:  :?:

Thats it for now, can't do any more tonight, I have run out of glue :oops:  time to call Richard  :lol:  :lol:

Looking very good John. Be interesting to see how it flies compared to the 2m EPP version.

Imagine running out of glue!  :shock:
What are you going to sniff tonight? :?:

Very good John!  :clap:  :clap:
Really lokks like this is coming along nicely!  :clap:

By the way, for the rudder, you think the one on the plan is better, or the one you have? (to me, the one on the plan, looks more "rigid" if you see what I mean)
I agree with the cutting, asked them to do a quick job for prototyping, and looks like that's what they did!  :!:
Remember that the plan you have, if the final one  :D
The hard bit, are the wings now! Have fun, and go get some glue! (Mr Harry Potter's glasses!  :P )

A little more done tonight, between brushing out the workshop of all the water which has ran down from the patio straight in front of the workshop door, handy if I was a marine modeller :lol: . So finished sheeting the front hatch, and added the nose which needs to be sanded to shape.




Fuselage ready for an over all sanding to shape.

The tail I have is the prototype and Fred has changed this on the plans, However I just used a few strips of hard balsa along the edges of the rudder and fin to make them more rigid see below:



Tail with added strips for strengh



How the tail looks when added to the fuselage.

So that's about it for now, not a lot done tonight, however I am still making good progress with the the Quark 2m and by the way my glasses are an old pair which I keep in the workshop, and yes Fred, they do look like Harry Potter's :oops:  :oops:



Cheers for now from Harry Potter!!

Happy Days

quote]

It’s statements like this that throw me completely off.

When you say you’ve “added some strips of hard balsa along the edges” do you mean;

a) that you have stuck some kind of balsa veneer strips onto the original edges of the rudder & vertical fin? (I’ve never heard of such veneer strips,…but that doesn’t mean such things don’t exist of course.)

Or
b) That you’ve stuck some balsa of the same thickness to the edges of the rudder/fin? (Thereby increasing the surface area of the rudder/fin in the process. Which is what the pictures look like to me.)

This probably sounds a daft question to all you experienced guys, but to a Numpty like me :roll:
