Blink Hi Del
Just an observation and it may just be the picture angle but on post 28 last picture it looks like formers 7/8 still have a slight twist to the right and back to the left. Maybe just the angle and I hope Im wrong
regards

Hi Andy,BigGrin

Your eyesight and observation is correct, but the shift is very, very slight and is exaggerated by the camera angle.

Had me in a panic for a bit there, as I`ve added all the stringers now.Crying Crying

Thanks for looking in and your input.Cool

Hi All,BigGrin

This is the start of the right wing build,(inc the jig).

I used this jig to set up my Victory build and have adapted it for the Spitfire.

The jig consists of a grid base and right angle brackets, as below Pic 1.


I spaced the brackets at different distances apart to allow for varying gaps between the wing ribs.Pic 2



This then gave me a sliding clamp for the main wing spar. Pic 3



I could then position the first wing rib and place it directly on one of the grid reference lines. Pic 4



It was then a case of positioning the clamps to make sure all angles were ok, then remove the rib, apply adhesive, replace the rib and allow to set. Pics 5+6



From this point all I had to do was slide the main spar right or left, to get the next rib in line with the grid and duplicate the last procedure.
The next picture shows the rear spar in place (not glued) to aid in the setting of the ribs. Pic 7



Having set a firm base frame, for the next rib I removed the rear spar, glued the next rib, put it in position and then clamped it in place with the rear spar as an extra support. Pic 8



That`s all for this session, BigGrin BigGrin

Still a way to go on this wing and then,

Hi Eddie, BigGrin

Firstly, welcome to the forum. You are in the right place for any help and/or assistance you may need.Cool

As for the supports, they are not compulsory, but I had them available from another build so put them to further use.

Reference your question does it help?

Anything you have to hand to get things straight and square can only be of benefit.

As the spitfire is being plated in small squares of plate metal, then everything is going to have to be spot on or you may end up with issues later on.

In conclusion, if you have a method of making sure everything is straight and square then carry on.

Happy building,

Hope to see a build diary, they are few and far between.BigGrin

Hi Eddie, this jig kit is mainly for planes, but I`ve adapted it for my Victory build.

If you plan to get into boats as well, then there are specific keel jigs or you can make your own.

Have a good time browsing some of the boat builds from their start and you`ll see what I mean. Laugh

Hi Derek,

Just wondering if you have built more to your Spitfire, I know you have other projects on the go, your DC3 build is which is probably taking most of your time plus your river boat you are very busy.

But as I say I just wondered if the Spit has had any more attention.

Regards

Hi Trev, BigGrin

You hit the nail on the head. Very busy, but as the DC3 is only a couple of months from the finish line I hope to get back in the Spitfire groove soon.

I'm also still only half way through a workroom refit to accommodate the size of the builds I'm involved with.

Will update ASAP.

Thanks for looking in.Cool

Hi All,Blink Blink

As the saying goes "Never say Never". Crying

I have been out of action for some time due to serious "Tendonitis" in my right hand/thumb, which has affected my ability to grip things that are small. Really useful (NOT) when modelling.

I`ve managed some work on my full size cruiser as I use large power tools and people that can help out.

Now I have some more use in said hand and have tried out some easier work with wood/metal where screwdrivers etc are not needed.

There are some missing pics from way back that were never taken but this is an update that has taken over three weeks to complete. To put things in perspective I tried to put some ball joints into an RB7 build with a screwdriver and had to resort to using a cloth round the part and pliers in my left-hand as I couldn`t get the screwdriver to hold in the screw head.

Enough of all that, here`s some productivity on the Spitfire, you will see some marks where the pins have been hammered in and the strike was not exactly on target.

Depending on how many marks are made will depend on whether I go the painted/unpainted route. Just doing the best I can as I`m fed up not building.

Hi Derek,

That's good news about your hand, and it's good to see the Spitfire out of the hanger ready for the next stage on the wings. If you need more metal sheets B&Q sell Aluminium sheets 25x50 cm / O.5 mm for about £4.00 practice all you like with that size.

Just a thought

UPDATE BigGrin :

I`ve done some bits and pieces ( not necessarily in the correct order) so I can make some more progress.

Pic 1: added another panel.
Pic 2: start of the undercarriage.
Pic 3: undercarriage box sections made and fixed plus cut away sections.
Pic 4: First wheel well cut away.
Pic 5: Rear of wing mounting plates fitted.

That`s what I`ve managed in four days, but at least its progress.Blink

More to follow when enough to post.

Hi all, BigGrin

Just a small update for now:

Have made up the next two plates for the right wing, (see attached pic).

Need to purchase some new sand paper tomorrow, before I can proceed with fitting them.

Hi All, BigGrin

Some more progress made on the wing plating.

I`ve now managed to get the right wing leading edge plates completed and the first rear plate done.

I`m thinking that I`m still on course to finish this in the shiny metal finish, but time will tell. Still lots of panels to fit and if that goes ok, then a good polish up before the final decision.Blink

Have attached a couple of pics of recent progress below.
