Beautiful, Michael!  I really like your colour scheme.  This will make an excellent photo subject against a blue or cloudy sky!  On white it will look like the wings, top of the fuse and the top of the rudder/fin are separate entities flying in formation!!

Bravo!!

I was going to watch this one from the sidelines, but the bait was far too tasty!

So, having examined the elegant forum dialogue of the past few weeks, I am compelled to offer "incisive", "witty"," excruciatingly funny", and above all, "suitable for framing", as additions to Frank's proffered list of Weaverian descriptors!   We are truly blessed to have Bruce in our ranks.  8)

Most respectfully yours,

re:"OR FRANK, are you afraid to try to fly combat against all the other experienced TEMAC pilots?"

Dem's fighting woids. :o

My Warwing will be built this year (last year's kit) and it will fly against you and all other pilots.  I will not win because I don't have your killer instinct but I will be eating foam this year.  May it be yours! 8)

@Frank v B , @bweaver ,

Maybe we should call this for what it really is, the "WarWords Quiz" !!!   8)

Sheeting the center section.

It was very obvious that each wing bay had to be sheeted individually because of the compound curves.

The original plan was to put the top and bottom on at the same time and glue them from the trailing edge up to the high point in the rib (spar), let it dry, then draw it together at the front and glue it in place.  Problem was the clamps kept sliding off the leading edge.  Ended up glueing the entire piece onto the wing (top and bottom), then wrapping it with green tape to hold it in place.  There are 3 wraps of tape to hold it in place.  The first wrap would not stick because I had to soak the balsa to allow it to bend.  Tape does not like moisture.

Photo 30- view from the bottom of the wing.  You can see the landing gear blocks in place here.  Bruce: the photo is a little blurry.  It should normalize after two beers. :D

Photo 31- two sides done and allowed to dry.  The one clamp is to keep the sheeting flat on the rib.

Photo 32- My new favourite piece of woodworking equipment- Roger Mason's carbide stick.  It makes sanding so fast, accurate and easy.  It has a fine and course end... just like the man himself. ;)

Back to work.......

Photo 28- shows the close-up of the port wing half.  The leading edge is closest to the camera.   The leading edge sheeting trick worked and the wing is now straight.  The bottom leading edge sheeting has not yet been done.  The photo shows the landing gear block in place (below the rectangular balsa doubler).  The original design was just the landing gear block sitting in between the two ribs with a plywood rib doubler on each rib.  Not enough, especially since I know who will be flying this thing.

Have added the balsa triangle re-inforcement at the leading edge to brace the landing gear.

Have added triangle braces at the trailing edge where it splits and the aileron starts.  Without braces, this would be a very weak area.

Photo 29 a close-up of the center section with all braces in place and drying.

Bruce, please note how large the photos open up when you click on them.   Just for you.  If you still have problems seeing them I will add a Braille setting. ;)

RE:If I were to win I would have to report to you and listen politely on how to build a Warwing.  It would be as much punishment for you as it would be for me. ;D  I am trying to let you off (down?) easy. 8)

Frank


Frank, I have given it more thought about your excuse as to why you haven't entered to win.  I have also confirmed even though you routinely admit it, you do not read instructions. Rule 2 of the quiz/contest clearly states:
(2) if you win, you have to pick up your kit Wednesday night at the build session, or arrange with me for picking up the kit at another club meeting or at a mutually agreeable time at Rogo Field, or other location.

Thus, if you enter and by chance win, you could try to build it without my help in your personal solitude. This would ensure that you would not be punished.

OR FRANK, are you afraid to try to fly combat against all the other experienced TEMAC pilots?

PS to all other TEMAC members besides Frank; - if you have a Warwing, it doesn't mean you have to fly it in combat. That will be, and is your choice. Warwings fly great just as a sport aircraft, if that is what you want to do.  (But if you want the streamers are free.)
