    RE: Yellow Aircraft F-16C EDF Build

    BTW, first pic is for a 1/10th scale Apache, second one as well. the last pic is for a 1/9th scale NH90 by graupner. all pretty small scales

    RE: Yellow Aircraft F-16C EDF Build


    ORIGINAL: reaper31

    man, been watching this tread as i have decided to build this kit as soon as i gather the funds to buy the kit (just had to buy a new TX)
    it is just beautiful. since you are working on the cockpit. i just wanted to show you guys what i have been doing for my helis, i was planning on doing this for this kit as well.
    i make these using a 3D printer can't wait to get started. i might contact yellow aircraft to see i they sell just the cockpit parts so i can get started.
    Outstanding work! Looks like an Approach Engineering Apache... I have one of those half done, but I got one of the kits with the wrong size belt, so I need to tear it up to get the right one in there :-( I don't think I'll be able to accomplish anything so fancy, so I'll be using a combination of 2d/3d elements to make things look as realistic as possible. Stay tuned for the next video to see what I mean.

    RE: Yellow Aircraft F-16C EDF Build

    good guess, its the 50 size, so this one has a torque drive in it.
    looking forward to see your video on how you will do your cockpit!

    RE: Yellow Aircraft F-16C EDF Build

    Here's the next video. I'm discussing how I'll make the cockpit look more "3d" (though not as cool as reaper31's).
    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggGxC4zYmwA[/youtube]

    Check out the attached picture: Notice the "3d" elements I was referring to around the edges of the cockpit (on either side of the HUD). You can see the areas that can be raised and the shade I was referring to in the center of the picture.

    RE: Yellow Aircraft F-16C EDF Build

    Here's a quickie.  I decided to re-do the air lines for a neater installation.  In this video I discuss my most recent plans to get them tidy.

    RE: Yellow Aircraft F-16C EDF Build

    Hey Gang,
      Still working on the cockpit detail.  I can tell by the exponentially declining Youtube views that this is boring people to death, so I'll keep it to a minimum on the videos.
      I've been mulling over how I want to do the removable cockpit.  As I stated earlier I'd like to just have a "drop in" cockpit with canopy, etc...  But after seeing Gunradd's new build, I think it would be cool to have an opening canopy like his (you know, so everyone can see all that cockpit detail )

    RE: Yellow Aircraft F-16C EDF Build

    Here's a quick update.  I'm slowly but surely making some progress.  I've figured out how I want to run my air lines (yeah!) and have started some of the mundane stuff like adding my hatch latch.  I think I'm done with the control panel for now and will take a break from the cockpit until I get all the air lines run throughout.  Enjoy!

    Also,

    These kits should be back in stock in a couple of weeks and, as always, you'll pay at least 5% less for them when you order them through me. Happy holidays!

    RE: Yellow Aircraft F-16C EDF Build

    Sorry for the delay in the recent videos.  With the holidays and misc. drama outside the shop I got slowed down.  Anyway, we're back on track for a few days.

    I really had to scratch my head on this cockpit thing... it really isn't designed to be easily removed, that's for sure.  The answer to my problem of getting the thing to fit and to make it semi easy to remove was as simple as moving the air tanks.  Check out the video to see what I mean.

    Here's a diversion from our cockpit.  Let's play with stencils!  In this video I also show how I'm going to do my motor mount/rails.  Enjoy!

    Ok, so how did the stencil work turn out?  Check out the video to find out!

    Overall, I think that using the frisket is very easy and accomplishes exactly what it was intended to do.  Now that I've learned some of its characteristics I think I will get even better results in the future.  You don't learn 'till you try, right?  :-)

    RE: Yellow Aircraft F-16C EDF Build

    Well, I sanded off the "pig" from my rudder, filled, primed and sanded.  One problem that occurred was that air bubbles (they looked like wrinkles) were appearing.  When I cut the frisket I must have cut through the fiberglass and caused the air pockets. 

    I cut slits where the wrinkles were, slightly enlarged with the X-Acto and filled with Z-Poxy.  I'm letting that dry now.  It's an easy fix, but a lesson to be learned.  I'll be pre-cutting my frisket prior to applying to my parts in the future.

    Great videos!

    I have had some success using silver solder to fix broken nipples on some air cylinders. You may want to consider that to fix the nipple on your fill valve.

    Awesome job!

    I don't think the nipple is actually broke, I think it is the "lip" that the tubing fits over. It isn't symmetrical so it is almost flat on one side so it isn't digging into the tubing like it should. Thanks for the suggestion, I've heard that the "cheap" air cylinders for the Yellow F-16 are prone to breakage and can be repaired as you have described.

    RE: Yellow Aircraft F-16C EDF Build

    Happy New Year everybody!
    In this episode we start building the duct extension to move our Stumax back to help make getting the center of gravity where it needs to be easier. This is Part 1 of a 2 part video. 
    It has been so friggin cold I haven't been able to paint. I want to get back on that vertical stab when the weather warms up. Until then, on with duct extending action...

    RE: Yellow Aircraft F-16C EDF Build

    Here's part 2 of building the extension duct. I was running out of time so there'll be a part 3. This will hopefully help answer some questions people had as to the strength of the duct or how it is assembled... if not by Part 3 it should be crystal clear.

    RE: Yellow Aircraft F-16C EDF Build

    Ok, the final video on building the extension duct. Other than cosmetics I think it's pretty much complete. As far as stiffness is concerned I don't think there's any way this thing will budge once it is inserted into the existing duct and the stumax is on the mounting rails.

    Check it out and let me know what you think!

    Here is an updated F-16 Build #40B that is viewable in all countries.  I took out the offending classic 80's montage song that was stirring up trouble.  :-)

    RE: Yellow Aircraft F-16C EDF Build

    Ok, here's some "progress". I wanted the duct extension to match so I did the following:
    1) Filled and sanded the wooden ring around the duct extension
    2) Glassed
    3) Filled and sanded the newly glassed duct extension
    4) Primed
    5) Painted with matching stumax color scheme
    Check it out in the pics below.

    Hey Gang,
    Sorry for the delay in videos. These HD videos have filled my HD to capacity. I'm currently archiving all the videos to DVD so I can reclaim some disk space. In the meantime I created the "WisMax" logo for my duct extension just for fun. Check it out below:

    Good news! I can start making videos again. I backed up everything (no longer in HD, though) and saved 513.62GB of Hard Drive space! Stay tuned, and sorry again for the delay in new videos.

    Hey gang,
      I'm waiting for some new parts to arrive, but in the meantime check out this video.  I do have a question for all of you regarding my duct being slightly crooked.  Watch the video and see what I mean.  I don't think it's anything major, but I'd appreciate your opinions and/or suggestions.  Thanks!
