So decided to have a go at something that looks a bit like a Stinson. First question - why 'looks like' rather than do a Stinson. I'll get that one out of the way first - not very good at carving or cutting so don't know what it will finish up like, plus having to add bits that may not really look like the 'original' bits should. After this I would like to have a go at a slightly bigger generic 2 engined plane.
The initial blank I did ages ago - but just got back to the project a few days ago. One impetus was the release of the Reviresco paper Stinson - ordering a download and using the wings/fins as a template makes life a lot easier!
|The first two pictures demonstrate quite clearly that I can't cut a straight line.|
|Wings added. I originally cut out thinnish wings, decided they wouldn't survive, so redid them a lot thicker.|
|Basic plane done. The tail has a bit of a gap between it and the fuselage - filler should do the job here!|
