Scale RCM 1/3 Scale Champ Build

Discussion in 'Giant / Scale Scratch and Kit Build Threads' started by TonyHallo, Jan 5, 2019.

  1. IMG_2105.JPG My first build here on GSN, so let's get it started. I started building the ribs last winter while recovering from back surgery. There are a total of 50 pieces in each rib. I made is jig out of 3/4" plywood. I think the maximum ribs produced in a day was three since I was using Titebond II glue and I wasn't going anywhere.

  2. IMG_2108.JPG For some reason the photo above is rotated 90 degrees? This one is the same view as my computer. Ready to come of the jig, the 1/32" plywood reinforcements still need glued to back side.
  3. The wing bow are laminated from 1/16" basswood, 8 layers. The buck is 3/4" plywood covered with package tape. IMG_2118.JPG IMG_2119.JPG

    Wow cannot belive we are this lucky. Thanks for posting this build on GSN and I am in on the build. Looks like a big plane. And you have patience to build ribs like that it’s a pity that it all gets covered up and nobody can see all the detail work that went into the plane. But you know that we did see it will enjoy following you through the build.
