Aeromarine 75/Curtiss F-5-L (Highball Express)

Recommended Posts

Looks great, I love how you've done the chairs. 

Mongoose's comment makes me wonder if the pax had to pay extra for checked bags, preferred seating, or extra legroom... :)

Working on the new rudder/tail combination of the Curtiss F-5-L...

Drawing of the rudder/tail transferred to 1 mm styrene sheet.

Thin 'stringers' applied to both sides of the rudder. The outer skin is another styrene sheet 0.5 mm with 'ribs' made with a ballpoint pen from the inside...

Rib tape made from 0,15 mm styrene strips with added stiching.

That looks perfect! How did you replicate the stitching detail on the rib tapes?

 

Thank you, I've used my Excel Pounce Wheel...
