    RE: Kingcat-Like Design and Build


    ORIGINAL: reeseman9

    The canopy looks to me to be more suited to the F-16 but it's your design. It'll look great either way.
    Thanks for replying. I thought the same. Was hoping to get some input on this last week before painting them on but it seems that this thread has lost its mojo.

    I went with the F-16 canopy.

    RE: Kingcat-Like Design and Build

    Fuse Plug #2.1-3


    We got canopy lines (figure 1)!



    The canopy lines technique was pretty simple. First, I used green electrical tape to draw out the basic shape (figure 2). Then, I used a pencil to trace around the INSIDE of the tape (figure 3).



    This was in case the tape moved and had to be reapplied. Next, I applied the red electrical tape INSIDE the green and subsequently removed the green (figure 4).

    RE: Kingcat-Like Design and Build

    Fuse Plug #2.1-3

    It's like glass!

    Nothing much to this update; just lots of picture and lots of sanding. Started with 400grit -> 800 -> 1000 -> 2000. Would of went higher but that's all the paint store had. Imagine what it will look like after about 4 coats of wax [8D].



    What's Next?
    1. Machine the Fuse Right Side -Check
    2. Machine Both Sides of Canopy -Check
    3. Epoxy soak CNC'd parts -Check
    4. Join fuse and canopy halves -Check
    5. Spray light coat of primer and make small repairs -Check
    6. Make Canopy Lines -Check
    6. Make mold

    So, with nearly another year and a half gone by, how's the Modkat coming? Yes, I do still think about it!
    remember when people actually BUILT their airplanes?

    RE: Kingcat-Like Design and Build

    So with no response, is one to assume this project is dead in the water?
