Default RE: The complete YELLOW AIRCRAFT SPITFIRE thread.


ORIGINAL: MarkShapiro

One other: The fiberglass wingtips I received with my kit were pretty flimsy. I bought some of that expandable foam in a can that is used as plumbing insulation, and filled the hollow tips with it. Much more rigid and remained very light. Just be sure NOT to put too much foam in because if you do, it will rupter the tips. Fill the tips about 20 to 25% and the foam will do the rest. Be sure to drill vent holes for the foam to escape from. When it cures, it is very easily sanded clean.
Just a quick thought Mark,
I am planning the clipped wing version so wont be using the wing tips but is there plans with the kit to show what I will need to achieve this?
