6. EQUIP IT FOR R/C (OPTIONAL)
6a. Drill holes in the fuselage rear for
the 2 pushrods to exit.
6b. Mount 2 servos approximately
where shown on the plan, using
6"× 2" spruce to conjure up a
support framework for your system.
Mount the pushrods to run to the
servo heads unobstructed.
7. COVER IT
Follow the instructions that come with your covering material. A single 72" roll will cover the entire model
if you plan ahead. Here’s the usual procedure for iron-on plastic.
Cut out and lay a piece of covering
over a section of the airframe. Smooth
out the covering. Use a 350°F iron
to first tack down the corners, then
seal down the perimeter. Shrink and
smooth the entire section by work-
ing the iron gently over the surface.
Repeat for all model surfaces.
TIP: Cut a fringe into any
curved edges to seal them
down without wrinkles.
