This build is going to hold a few more challenges than my previous correx builds, mainly because the plan I'm using is not the usual 'unwrapped ' fuselage and wing type but a conventional one.
Also I am going to build the fuselage out of 2mm sheet instead of my usual 4mm. The reason for this is to try to reduce weight of the finished model. First off I glued the plans of the formers onto 4mm correx and carefully cut these out using a sharp craft knife, ensuring the blade was kept vertical at all times. I then used coarse sandpaper where necessary to get the correct shape. A 10mm hole was then drilled at the pre-marked centre spot. All the formers were then slide onto a length of 10mm diameter wooden dowel and lined up as per plan....This ensures that the fuselage is going to be build straight and true.
This is the plan I'm working off.
