Let me tell you how you can build an exotic aircraft model, which was built by the author.
de Havilland DH.98 “Mosquito” – de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito) – British multipurpose bomber, night fighter of the Second World War, which was in service with the RAF.
Basically, if you don't like doing model of this particular aircraft, you can use this article as a guide to building any other twin-engined aircraft.
Before starting the assembly of the model, the author gives a warning that the model has a V angle of 4 degrees on each wing. When installing the engine nacelles, pay attention to the correct installation, they must be strictly vertical.
Here are some photos of disassembled fuselage parts, which make it easy to assemble the model.
On the frames, a pin pierces the locations of the mounting holes, which are drilled with a tube.
The process of making the cabin.
All parts are carefully adjusted, cleaned and glued.
For strength, internal parts are made of 3 mm. plywood.
This is how the wings are made.
Place the fold, cover the outside with transparent tape.
C Press the wrong side or make a groove.
The spar and ribs are mounted
The trailing edge of the lower plane of the wing is cut at an angle, cleaned and prepared for gluing.
Drilled holes for wires from servos. Servrmachines are mounted.
Blanks for the keel and stabilizer are reinforced with carbon strips, rods or tubes.
Centering rods are inserted into the frames and trimmed. Ready fuselage sections are obtained.
The nose fairing of the fuselage is made from a piece of insulation of the required thickness or made from several layers. Insulation is glued into the bow and processed to the required shape.
Separate fuselage sections assembled.
For strength, cross-shaped plates are inserted inside each section.
The elevator is hung on the hinges.
Made a swivel tail wheel that turns synchronously with the rudder.
The blank for the cabin is pasted over the glass with a cloth.
A synchronizer is glued into the elevator and the entire stabilizer is pasted over the glass with a cloth.
Spikes are glued in.
A guide bush for the rear wheel is glued.
The rudder and stabilizer are reinforced with linings.
Preparing holes for gluing bowden guides for rudder rods
In the fuselage section, a tube is inserted strictly horizontally, along which the tail assembly is measured, during installation.
The tail unit is glued in after the fuselage is glued with a cloth.
The wing and fuselage are pasted over the glass with cloth.
A piece of insulation is glued to the end of the wing, of the required size and processed to the desired shape.
The engine nacelles are being prepared for the installation of engines. Hoods are made.
After covering the glass with cloth, the motor gondolas are mounted on the fenders.
A place is being prepared in the fuselage for gluing the wings.
Hatches are cut out in the engine nacelles and retracts are mounted.
A compartment for installing electronics is cut out.
Compartments are made for installing the regulators.
Ventilation holes are made for cooling the regulators.
Caps are made – valves that close the regulators and are mounted in place.
A hatch is cut through the bottom of the forward fuselage for installing and replacing the battery.
On the lid covering electronics , the cabin is mounted.
The model is ready for painting.
Painted and ready-to-fly model.
This is how my story about this model came to an end imperceptibly.
Hope you have benefited from my story and you will have a desire to build something like that. On this I say goodbye. Goodbye, your Valerian Samodelkin .
