Volume 2

With a ten foot twin under way, we find new topics such as; sheeting a  leading edge, an engine cooling tunnel  with  flap,  twin - elevator  servos,   landing   gear  doors,  then  plenty  of  opportunity  for some easy  metal   work.  And, as  Dave  shows,  there’s nothing to be scared of;  with a  brief education on  metal  types  plus  some  simple  metal  work,  now “the model leaps forward on all fronts”.
