Buzzard Bombshell 70%
« on: July 06, 2020, 11:13:48 am »
This will be an interesting build.
Should start when a suitable workspace can be secured...
Too many projects on the go at once...  ::)

First step completed.
A bit more sanding and carving on the bottom when the stab will be completed for appropriate contour.

Stab almost done, more sanding and filling required.

Guy,

just a minute.  How did this project go from:

 "Should start when a suitable workspace can be secured...
Too many projects on the go at once...  ::)

To: "Stab almost done, more sanding and filling required."

... in 5 days?

Keep going.  We don't have to make sense in this hobby. 8) 8)

@Frank v B , seems that I have a short memory...  :-X I "forgot" that I have "a few" things on the go.  ::)
Mean people would blame it on age, I blame it on enjoying gluing pieces of balsa together.
The Minimoa is taking backseat for now as I ran into a hurdle and i need to figure out how to construct some stuff.
So thinking about another project clears the mind. Well, that is my story and I am sticking to it!! ;D

Guy,

I fully understand and appreciate the mental gymnastics.  Every model collection is one airplane short of perfect. ;D
Keep going.  There is a finish line. ;)

Great progress on the Buzzard Bombshell.

Planning the motor and battery installation.
Need to reinforce the former #2 with 1/16 plywood and add triangular stock.
This should work...

This is the motor that will be used in the Bombshell.
Should be adequate power.

Landing Gear soldered, I am happy with the results. ;D
Firewall and L/G blocks epoxied in place.  Not too much of a banana.  ::)

First time with wheels.
Fuselage weighs in at 4.2 oz. :D
The wheel 5.5 oz. total.  :o
I do not think I will use these wheels unless VERY tail heavy!
