Hey Chuck. Thought I'd give this a bump again. Any progress?

I'm just dying to see pics of you laying one up.

Good thread in need of a bump, I hope to be starting a project like this soon, and have been meaning to use some of these techniques on it (40 something inch e-yak for 4s)

Hey Chuck,

I just can't stay away from this thread, I go back to it over and over .

It needed a bump.

Maybe this thread could be made a sticky for how to make a plug. It's an excellant tutor.

I'll start by posting a few pictures of the Airplane and then setting up the split line (parting line)...This is probably a little overkill...But I have more plans for this set-up and I'm hoping to re-use it if possible...I also wanted the fuse to "Stay Put"...It seems to be working out pretty well so far...Hopefully she'll be still through out the splash...

Hey chuck.

I was curious as to how you attached the balsa to the fuse of your Atlanta. At some point you'll remove the added wood you used to cover the openings. Did you epoxy it in? Use Super glue? Also did you smooth over the surface atferward with alayer of Epoxy?

I went to start my mold but forgot about this very important part. I was going to tack glue it with Super Glue as I would lke it to come off easy but at the same time be sturdy enough for the molding process. Could you elaborate on how you went aboutpreparing the fuse?

Thanks again.

Bryan

Yeah that's exactly what I did...Just tacked the balsa in place with super-glue then used bondo to fill in the opening with the balsa backing...It seemed to work pretty well as it held in place during the lay-up process and was cleanly removed afterwards...

Good luck with your project!!

Chuck
