Are you wondering about how they attach to the engine cowling?

Well that as well. Right now I am wonder just how to join the two land struts to from the one for each side of the aircraft and how and where they join into the bottom of the engine housing. SO a couple of things to think about. Thanks Coach. wc

Yeah sorry. I've been busy finishing things up around the house before I start grad classes next week. Let me throw something together tomorrow that should help you.

Coming along nicely. That's a nice little assembly line for gear struts.

July 11th-Tires shaped, sanded and formed with wheel covers on one side and gluing while struts are gluing and drying. Time for a walk. wc

I found a=n idea in the B-17 model where a Q-Tip was soaked in glue and shaped and allowed to dry. After which I would sand till I had what I was looking for to use in the spinner hub. Another great idea.


Good tip about the Q-Tips (had to look that one up we call them cotton buds this side of the pond )

Some thing I've found useful is filling wheels with blu-tack, not only does it make them easier to make, but it weighs the aircraft down in the right places when finished

Ooo. Hadn't thought of that before. Is the "Blue tack" stuff what you can use to hang posters and things on walls? The "Sticky-tack" here is a kind of clay-like stuff that is stretchy and quick sticky.

Yep that's the stuff

It's often used in the plastic modeling world for masking when painting camo

Never would have thought to use it for paint masking. But, for camo, it gives a nice fade area where the colors meet. Very cool.

Howdy Willy, can you give me the name of that name again of that Super Gel you used to apply a coating to the struts that WILL NOT react to the ink? I need something to apply a coating to the paper to add stiffness to it. I have the Clear Gel but the last time I used it, it really made the ink run. My craft/hobby store doesn't have what I think I'm looking for so I might have to go on-line for so that why I need the exact spelling of it. Thank you Coach. I hope your having a good weekend. wc.

The stuff I use is made by Bob Smith Industries, or BSI. The Hobbytown USA here has it labeled as their store brand. I use the purple bottle that is called "INSTA-CURE+ Gap-filling" glue. It is a bit more "liquidy" than most CA glues used for modeling. It works great for plasticizing paper parts.
