    Corrigated flying surfaces.

    How am I going to make all the corrigated surfaces on the Boeing F4B-4 I am building from scratch?

    Carefully and tediously?

    What scale are you working to and what would be the scale spacing on the corrugations? Letting us know the size of the issue would aid with appropriate suggestions.
    Witty saying to be plagarized shortly.....

    Wink

    The corrigations are 1.25" appart on the full size plane. I am building quarter scale. That would make them 5/16" appart. So far the only idea I have is to slice or "rip" wet spagetti in half, lay it on the surface to dry, then glue it after it dries. There must be a better way.

    create a plug using the half round,seal it well,then wax it a couple of times...put gelcoat or surface coat on it,let it cure,then layup .75 oz cloth polyester and epoxy(2 layers).Now you have a sheet of the stuff that you can use to reproduce corrugations over and over,using common epoxy techniques.
