Well, this is one of those builds that I wish I had discovered a year from now.

It's like waiting for the next episode of your favourite TV show.

 

Very inspiring, I can not wait to see more, thank you for sharing with us :)

Good morning,

My wife bought me the book A SPITFIRE IN MY WORKSHOP for my birthday. This inspired me to try building a scratch build plane myself. So, I will try to use lithoplate also. Let's see how it works out.

Got this one as well... I still don't get how you are going to get hollow fuselage halves - the litho plate wont support itself, so you need something to fix it to, don't you?

The rear fuselage will be "solid". The cockpit section of course not, there I will make a shell from lithoplates. At least that's the plan

Hi,

 

I made some progress on my Langnase and joind the center fuselage sction and the fuel tank chamber:

Center-fuselage_D9_Willmer_26_zpsfecbvaz

 

Bottom view of the subassemblies shows the sharp edges of the fuel tank chamber in contrast to the rounded cross sections
of the center fuselage to advantage.

Center-fuselage_D9_Willmer_28_zpsdtx21gw

 

The fuselage extension plug is made of two plywood frames and a balsa core.
Total width 41.5 mm

The groove is 0.8 mm deep and cut with the table saw.

Hi,

I started to grap some litho plate for the fuselage extension plug. The fuselage extension plug is made of 2 shells: left and right. The right shell overlaps the left one in a joggled joint at the spine and bottom.

A: Material defining the height of the joggled joint. In this case 0.15 mm
B: Shell plating of 0.15 mm litho plate for the left side.
C: Stop block for D.
D: Embossing tool for the jogle

0.15 mm isn´t very much, but it is there! ;-)
Fuselage_extension_D9_Willmer_33_zps6nqk

Macro of the joggled joint. The right shell will overlap the recessed portion.

Thanks Tony for the joggle 😊
