    I built a Nelitz from Plans a long time ago but on the plans you use round wooden dowels for the fuselage, I wonder why they call it a Nelitz kit

    Time to cut the ailerons out of the ribs. Used a French curve to find the curve then marked the curve with a Sharpie.

    Found a random aerosol can (grill cleaner?) that fit the curve. Some 3M contact spray and sandpaper and presto, a round sander. 20180210_132711.jpg 20180210_133056.jpg

    As many cylinders, cc's and strokes as I can fit in the cowl. Minimum 2 cylinder, preferably 4 stroke.
