kitfox1,

Ya- hoo on the Bootlegger canopy. Could I possibly get the base dimensions width and length or an outline with width and length? I would like to adjust the plan so it fits.

I pretty much have the fuse plan finished. Here's the preliminarypdf plan and ajpg.

Hi y'all,

Molds came out OK and are mounted permanently on their bases. Tomorrow I will do the final sanding and the parting wax will be put on the mold/s for a total of 10 coats. After that it will be the PVA for a total of four coats and then I will make the first canopy.
I will post the dimensions tomorrow for those of you that need the dimensions to make adjustments in your drawings/plans. Happy Fourth of July.

Hi y'all,

The lenght of the canopy is 60.5 Centimeters.
The width at the front is 7.5 Centimeters.
The width at the center is 7.85 Centimeters.
The width at the rear is 7.75 Centimeters.

The width dimension are the outside dimension of the canopy and due to some degree of flexibility of the fiberglass/epoxy we will be able to make it a little bit larger or smaller. I should have the first canopy by Sunday. Does any body have a Gelcoat spray gun that would like to part with at a reasonable price. PM me if you have one.

Thanks for those measurements. Could you possibly give the height measurments for front, highest point and end?

Hi y'all,
I am back and I must tell you that is and it was hot up the east coast. I am sorry I did not see the request about the additional dimensions, but I will get them once I remove the first canopy from the mold. With the present temperature it should take less time for the epoxy to cure.

Have you started sheeting the cores? You seemed happy with the quality of work from Don.

Kitfox how is the pipe tunnel Fuse top project coming along anything out of the mold yet?

Where are you buying your 1/16th sheeting? Are you using epoxy?

Hi Chris,
I am using epoxy I got it from Aircraft Spruce Co.!!! This company has all the building needs for full Scale and a whole lot of it will work on our Models !! I used a product called EZ LAM and it works great !! The wood I used was some I had bought from Sig. some years ago ! Worked great also and was lite too...

Dave...
Lil Dave told me to say Hello for him !!!

Good evening,

The first canopy is out of the mold and the second canopy is presently in the mold. I am enclosing a picture and I think it came OK with the aircraft structure epoxy that I am using. This canopy has my name on it, the next one has Dave Phillips name on it. Let me or Dave know if you need one. I plan to make them as they are needed and requested.

I am also in the final steps in getting ready an original Dirty Birdy canopy plug. Thanks to Dave who was very kind to loan me his original kit DB canopy so I could make a copy. I know my DB is going to look better with this canopy. Have a nice evening.

Anyone have a set of plans for these. I have a fuselage and stab and wing cores. Need plans to build vertical
Fin and rudder.
Thanks

Chris - I have been buying from Lone Star Balsa for many years. www.lonestar-balsa.com Fast service and excellent quality. There are probably other suppliers available. I have gotten great product, and fast shipping. Most of what I buy is 6" X 1/16". I wrap the LE on my wings, and their skins are always up to the job.
It has been a while since I ordered from them, and am sure they are still in business. Part of their ad below.
Vince
================================================== ================================================== ===========================================

IF YOU WANT TO SPECIFY WEIGHT, YOU SHOULD BUY IN OPEN STOCK AND
SPECIFY SOFT, MEDIUM OR HARD. WE WILL TRY TO SELECT THE WEIGHT ON
SHEET WOOD AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AND WITHIN REASON. IF YOU WANT IT
SELECTED CLOSER THAN THIS PLEASE ADD 25% FOR THIS SERVICE. WE DO
NOT SELECT WEIGHTS IN STICKS OR SPECIAL SHAPES.
THE ACCEPTED WEIGHTS IN THE HOBBY INDUSTRY ARE AS FOLLOWS: (THIS
IS THE WEIGHT PER CUBIC FOOT) LIGHT 6-9# - MEDIUM 9-12# - HARD 12-16#.
SOME EXPERT MODELERS GRADE IT EVEN CLOSER AS VERY LIGHT 4-6# -
LIGHT 6-8# - MEDIUM LIGHT 8-9# - MEDIUM 9-10# - MEDIUM HARD 10-12# - HARD
13-15# - EXTRA HARD - OVER 15#
WE ALSO OFFER "CUSTOM SELECTION" WHICH MEANS WE WILL PICK GRAIN
FOR YOU AS AVAILABLE. THIS DOES TAKE A LOT OF TIME, SO THERE IS AN
EXTRA CHARGE OF 20 CENTS PER SHEET.

Guys,

from now on any post I have about the Bootlegger will be on this thread, as it is about building the airplane, not drawing up plans.
and Bryan you need to read post 55,56 and 75 and tell me that you did not know who Kit fox or Juilo was !!!
I'm not going to wast anymore of my time playing silly games with you about some stupid 30.00 that you said I tryed to Bilk Juilo out of

Hey buddy.

You and your CPA buddys spend2 days completely polluting the the other Bootlegger tread than drag it over here and then put you son up to finishing what you started in the other thread. I would never let my kidsfinisha fight that I started. Your a real piece of work and a fantastic example and representitive of CPA membership. Excellant job. Real brave guy. Excellant example of parenting.

You can post all you want to try and try to save face but I will say it again I had no idea that Julio and kitfox1 was the same person untilafter PM'ing you regardless of what posts you reference.

Bryan

Gentlemen,

it would be nice if we could keep this thread civil. An entire page on the other thread seemed more than plenty. A cool cloth on the forehead or a stiff single malt Scotch often does the trick for me...

Julio,

I just sent you a PM regarding the wing plan and airfoil templates. Please drop me a line when convenient.

Thanks, David

PS If anyone needs a CAD wing/stab plan with airfoils and templates for cutting cores, just send me a PM, I'll be happy to forward them.
