Anyway, very heavy and bent flaps from the original model have been replaced with hard balsa items that will be glassed on one side :
|Original at top, new at bottom|
The ailerons were fairly wobbly and of poor build quality, so I've replaced them as well:
|Flaps attached, and port wing with new aileron too|
So that's everything but the rudder replaced in new balsa. I wouldn't have been happy unless I'd done this, as they were all in poor shape. Just means lots to glass!
Anyway, I've just purchased another PSS aircraft, this time an ARTF from Hobbyking. It's a prop warbird from WW2, and will need very little work to get ready for the slopes - I've been taking photos as I go, so will update shortly with a build blog.
Looks like April will be a busy month for maidens :
HET Dasault Rafale
New project PSS 60"
Hawker Typhoon 106"
Let's hope the weather plays ball.
