I haven't even had a chance to make templates. Dude, you fly through this stuff!

What are your plans for a tank?

Thanks Jim. I had some relatively uninterrupted building time today. :) Finishing always slows me down.

Tank is a little Perfect 1/4oz held with hooks and a rubber band.

I made a bellcrank mount from 1/16" ply scraps. Spacers are 1/4" dowel drilled through. Sterling nylon belcrank from my stash.

Struts are 3x1mm carbon rod. I put a line guide on, but need to re-do it- angle is not right. Little pockets from 3/32" to give something to stick the covering to and bond the struts to.

I made the pushrod and guide per the plan.

All the hardware added a whopping 2 grams :)

I tried a recently learned trick. The inner ribs were cut by tracing an piece of paint stick with the rib pattern glued to it. The wing tip ribs were traced/cut around a tongue depressor with that pattern also glued on. Both cutting templates has their edges hardened with a couple of applications of CA. While it took fifteen minutes per template, I then cut the balsa ribs in about forty minutes.

Maybe I'll catch up before Mr. Jeremy's first flight...

That's always a good method on a Hershey bar wing !

I spent most of the past week sick with the flu. In spite of that, I managed to cover my wings and tail with tissue. First time doing that process in about 20 years, so I'm not proud of the results.

I'll spray the fuse black this week and some stripes on the top wing this week if the weather cooperates.

A few more coats of dope and you should be OK.

Mine always look baggy three coats from the end.

Jeremy

I see you have the plans for the Queen. Mine are lost. Could you point me in the direction of finding another set?

Thanks.

Dave, plans and build article are at this link. I downloaded them and printed full size landscape on an 8.5x11 sheet of paper.

After getting through two bouts of the flu, I finally have my little Queen Bee ready for final assembly.

I used my airbrush to shoot the black on the fuse and the stripes on the wing. The frisket I used on the wing did not stick terribly well, but I got the job done.

I'm envious...I just cut my LE/TE and slotted them. I already cut the fuselage and did the same with a canopy. The plan is to go with Lil Stinker colors and pattern similar to yours, Peter.

:)  Hello Dave!  Seeing your article cause my mind to drift and hear my box or left over wood call out ... "USE ME!  USE ME!"  To which I was unable to disobey!  Sir, this is your fault!  Although it is and has been a marvelous fault!
Finally ... Dave, although it was done a couple of weeks ago, here's the basic result of that cry of "USE ME!! USE ME"!!   LL~ LL~  Now to find my Cox .010!!  Personally, I think it's intentionally hiding out somewhere because it's heard about my flying skills from some of the other engines!!   LL~ LL~

I see that Jeremy will use TD .020 power for some extra scoot. Ive got on hand the regular Pee Wee with tiny tank. Bench testing it tonight, twas tricky to find a good needle setting for starting. After finally starting, it seems unlikely to have enough fuel to complete the pattern. Ha! Next run Ill time it and let you know.

From what I saw of The Queen Bee article, doing the AMA Stunt Pattern was not the goal.

It was more of a BiSlob type act using 1/3 of a circle while being flown from a stage.

Jim, that is great!

I finished mine today. I've got a bit of a "packaging" problem to work out. My tank is so close to the wing that it's near impossible  to fuel.

It finished out at 2ozs even. I'll be happy with some loops and maybe a figure 8  8)

A few more pics.

I used a mandolin E string for leadouts.

Jeremy

On the hangar Queen, I had to extend the fuel fill tube through the upper wing.

Dave, while you were posting this, I was modifying my tank.

I popped out the top vent and bent a forward facing vent and installed it.
