    RE: Andy Sheber Pitts s1s

    John the belly pan will be from the first bulkhead to the trailing edge of the wing. I'm working on it now but got delayed. I just had to see this thing with both wing's on. So I made the spacer for the wing, distance from top of fuse to bottom of top wing, and set the wing on. Went ahead and checked the incedence while I was there. Spot on. Okay back to the belly pan.

    And, the belly pan will have two 1/8 dowels in the front, which go thru the former same as wing, and the rear will secure with the wing bolts.

    Ace that was real clever how you did the Gear (not dear I was in a hurry). I will file that trick away.

    RE: Andy Sheber Pitts s1s

    I can see that, gear, is what you meant now. LOL
    Not much to show, but I have framed up the belly pan. Not quite done yet. The red arrow is the front former, yellow middle, and blue is the rear. The black arrow is where a 4-40 will go to secure the rear of the pan, the wing bolts fall in line with the spars so they are out. And the purple is where two 1/8" dowels will go to secure the front.

    I like it. Just two screws to remove the gear even better.

    Gee Robert, anybody ever tell you that you should write a manual?  Come to think of it, does anyone write manual for a scratch built plane?  (This question just comes from ignorance and a long day at work.  Nearly left the plant without my head!  [X(])

    Oh!  And it looks good, looks real good!

    Robert, that looks spot on, a clever piece of building. I meant to ask you this before - how do you do the little annimations on your pictures ?

    RE: Andy Sheber Pitts s1s

    I can't really explain it, to many options and types of photo shop. Short version is when I'm in the edit window for downsizing, an RCU must, all the tools are there on that page to work with. You just gotta play with it to figure out what they are and how they work.
       Haven't got much done yet today, had to go to my field and level some dirt then came home and mowed the neighbors yard. I am currently waiting for a 4-40 blind nut glued in to dry then I can add the filler to the belly pan, the part that contours with the wing.

    David I was suppose to write one for cubman on the L-4 but gace the plans away.
    Vincent I haven't seen Sensei here on this thread.

    Ah, ok. I thought it may be a seperate program you have on your PC.

    In what ever program you have that you downsize your photo you should have these tools in one form or another. I tried. A little fuzzy.

    Here's a shot of what I'm doing. The belly pan has been mounted, red arrows a dowel, yellow is a 4-40 into wing. The black arrows show how I use tape to get the contourfor the balsa sheet.

    Nice tip Robert,
    Your aboyt 8 hrs too late on that one I could have used it this morning to make some parts for my Waco I made a cardboard a template and trimmed and adjusted until I finally had it right. Your method looks easier.

    Later!!

    Ain't that something, because I use the template on cardboard and then trim, if needed, to fit. Then cut the balsa.

    RE: Andy Sheber Pitts s1s

    Ok, I have one side on the pan on. Just a little tid bit on what helps hold balsa from springing back from a curved point. The black arrows denote where a 1/4" wide strip of 1/64 crosses the pan from side to side, the ply gets tack glued to the pan as each side goes on. The red arrows are where on the inside of the pan a small nylon cord will attach to the inside wall and the yellow arrows are where that cord will attach at the other end inside the pan. These little attachment cords hold the wall from slowly returning to original shape because the inside is hollow on account of the gear wire and gear blocks.
