Thread: Inspired by A2A Piper Cherokee

    I have decided that rather than try to replace the images that were lost to the photobucket fiasco - I will instead just place a link here to the Virtual Aerodrome site where my collection of images and builds are stored.

    You can see each of the projects there (except for the F-18) by clicking on the appropriate 'Hangar' image.

    You can also select other artists and their works by name or aircraft type - or by the model manufacturer. That makes it easy to see lots of images during construction of a particular model if, for instance, you happen to be a builder yourself and want to get a sense of the kits and some technique.

    small update..
    the wing is partially infilled and some interior cabin trim has been added - also the main landing gear supports are being fabricated from balsa block material.
    the forward main float struts are anchored to these as are the wing struts.
    the floats have been laid up and as soon as the wing is completed the floats will be infilled and have their nose blocks attached and surfaced - then I can begin to work on the tail sections.

    now both of the main strut supports have been carved, sanded, installed, filled, sealed and sanded again.. I'm still not finished with the process but this is the gist of it.

    as you know, the main forward float struts and the wing struts are all attached to these 'stubs' so they needed to be strong and solid. I used balsa block material carved to shape and sanded. Once I am satisfied with the shape and finish I can seal the entire fuselage with a couple more coats of clear sealer. Then I will complete the wings and begin fabrication of the tail surfaces.
    After that I need to finish the floats and then make the struts.
    Still a ton of work to do on the SR10 but it's coming along

    all of the major components are complete except for the floats. They still need to be infilled and assembled along with their struts etc..







    still so much to do, but it is coming together...

    I'm going to have to extend the floats and also lay a 1/32" thick birch ply skin over the top and sides to make them proper scale for this model.

    They were the right size for the Guillows DHc-2 but are a tad too small for this larger Dumas Reliant..

    To extend them I will cut them in half at the step and add a 1" thick balsa block and sand it to shape

    After I get the side stripes on it'll be time for the panel lines and control surface demarcations - then I can get a nice couple of coats of semi-gloss clearcoat applied..

    After that the floats will be mounted and rigged. Then the reg. numbers and a final coat of semi-gloss. Then the glazing. Almost home
