    I’m not sorry I bought it, just would rather work in plastic.

    Hey Pete, I bet that 777 is awesome to pilot.
     
    I always thought of the 757 as the sports car, the 767 as the station wagon , and the 777 as the Cadillac.
     
  5. Thanks

    Hi Ryan,
     
    that is a pretty accurate analogy!
    whats interesting about the 757 however, is the fact that it is surprisingly heavy on the controls. The 767 was heavy in pitch, but light in roll. The 777 was very well balanced-
     
    cheers

    I've had problems in the past with acrylics clogging and discovered clumps in the paint and suggest straining when you load your airbrush.

    Right - a little rough and ready - but formers placed in position on modified upper starboard wing.
     
    Hopefully these photos will illustrate the direction I'm heading in - and pleased to report that only the outer former needed any tweaking to fit from the shapes I'd drawn up.
     

     
    Note the modifications to moulded reinforcement sections in the wing - root to tip reinforcement webs left intact at present - except were I've had to cut channels for new formers.
     
    Front to rear reinforcements - inner half of wing almost completely removed apart from at the very leading edge (to give something solid for the initial bonding point) - outer half just the rear half of each web.
     
    The outer root to tip web on the upper wing section may need reducing in depth - and that on the lower half removing completely - details to be confirmed.
     

     
    Note - wing not bent/bonded around formers in the above photo!
     

     
    Now looking at mods needed to the outer sides of the undercarriage bay as this will need reshaping to match new wing profile in this area.
     
    Still thinking through kit main-spar to new former integration - need more coffee first...
     
    Yes - this has taken a long time to get to this stage - but now the profiles are done - modification to subsequent wings *should* be straightforward.
     
    We'll see!

    Possibly...
     
    Have been discussing possible laser cutting of plastic sheet with a very knowledgeable friend - added to which I *may* be getting access to some proper 'studio' space/workshop where I work - but absolutely no guarantees at present.
     
    You never know, this *could* be the first model accessory from the Aeronut! 
     
    As an absolute minimum the designs will be available as a download .pdf to LSP members, so they can do what I've done with the prototype parts you see here and use to cut out new formers by hand.
     
    Whatever happens it will be announced here first - once I've got a set of wings suitably modded.

    Actually, the spars serve as a mounting base for a lot of components such as the landing gear, engines and control surfaces. The spars also make this a very rigid and strong model. Yeah, they are not like everyone else, but that is exactly their intention!  ;-)
