Default Fiberclassics kangaroo

Hello Guys,

I have a old fiberclassics kangaroo kit that a buddy so nicely gave to me, but it is in need of some repairs. One thing I need is the middle former(pink foam one) that is just infront of the landing gear.......I would remake it but some of it is missing.

Does anyone have drawings or something so i could try to make a new one?

Thanks
Paul

Paul, you should be able to figure out the shape of the former fairly easily.
Cut a series of 1/4" square balsa to fit across (or top to bottom) the fuselage in the spot where the former needs to be. Space them about 1/2" apart or so. Make them just long enough to fit between the walls and hold themselves in place without distorting the fiberglass.

Something like this:

(the forum software kind of screws up what I was trying to show there, but I think you will get the idea)

When all the sticks are in place you can CA a long stick of balsa at 90 degrees across all of them to lock them together. Then you should be able to pull the entire thing out as one piece, or if you have to you can cut it in half. Trace around the outside of the sticks, then cut out your former.

Hey Carlos...

Do you have a pic of the bottom of the yellow one? (with the white/black wing tips) I think I'm going to paint my HotSpot like that.

That's a nice set of Roos! [8D] I think my favorite would be the Rooskie Roo. I never flew one...
