    That looks just like one of those things that went in the center of a 45 record.:cool:

    That does looks rather nice, I am almost tempted!
    I do have a rather nice 4 blade 10 x 8 prop for another project that to scale would give an AN2 a span of 55" (1400 mm).

    No I mustn't! I simply don't have the storage space.
     
  5. Well plans are done so off to the printer tomorrow. We will see if it all fits like it is suppose to.

    I have a few that are in that 55 to 60" range, fun but just a pain in the butt for storage and hauling. You are welcome to give it a go if you want to. Maybe sit back for a few days and wait and see. LOL


    Cheers

  6. Well plans are here so cutting begins. Boy as long as the wing span is it sure isn't a long plane. Could have interesting flight characteristics. ;)

    If it flies good I have 3 full more sets of plans along with 4 1/2 sets. The girl had written down the square footage of each page, page 1 8 and page 2 4 , so the guy printing them today printed out 8 of the one and 4 of the other. LOL

  8. Got interrupted by some company today so didn't get much done. Pieces are all cut out and dry fitted the fuse parts, spars glued together, found a couple missing registers but overall it looks like it should go together.

  11. Well wings are folded and together, ailerons hinged and spots cut out for the servos to flush mount them in the bottom side of each wing.


    Next comes the fuse, even though it is a fairly simple design it looks like all joints and pieces have to be glued and rolled together in one shot. Hopefully keep most of the glue on the parts and not my fingers.

  12. Here's a few non blurry pictures of the fuse dry fitted. ;)

  13. Well that went not to bad. ;) Just have a hundred pieces of masking tape ready to go. :D

    Wow....0 to AN-2 in less than a week! Very cool. The only problem I can predict is that you'll go bonkers at it not going mach 2! Lol

    I`m sure Jeff will find fun on the slow side of flying.
     
  17. Thanks Ian, I just wish I had your brain for the engineering side of it, and maybe your crusty humor. :D :D
     
  18. HEY, I do have a few that fly under mach 10. ;)

    Wildthing, ... you and jimbosflyin keep on amaze me in different ways. Jimbosflyin with his built and paint finish that equal if not surpass to those storebought planes.

    And you, with your Rhino speedy learning, you can now design any plane you want, the way you want it. Awesome! Congratulations Bro!
