Cool idea to paint the wood with sharpie.  It will look great!

I got some more on the Roland including the main landing gear, the bottom of the fuselage stringers, and the tail skid.  Finally...I also got the cowl cheeks in place.  Only thing left is the rest of the cowling and then off to the covering shop!

Cheers,
Dan

I will need to start the Joe Ott Martin Maryland in the future due to too many issues and lost stuff. So Ill bow out of the cookup for now. But plan on building in the next one.

Sanded parts and stained the wood with a red sharpie. Finish will be red tissue sprayed with Krylon, which doesn't seem to make it run at all.

The rudder and stab are supposed to be one surface only, but the wings might be a bit flimsy if only covered on one side. I'm going to use a red sharpie to colour the structure so it won't be obvious on the tail surfaces. I've built a few peanuts. No problems with wood sizes. It looks like you are using 1/32nd for those turtledeck stringers. Good going!

Wow!  That is a lightly built tripe!  I agree that it will likely fly great...covering will be key.  Will you only cover the top sides?

Here is some slow progress on my Roland fuselage.  I'll try to get the cockpit and lower fuselage done tomorrow.  Got a first stab at the cowling as well.  Looking good!

Cheers,
Dan

Nice looking pan-fry size rainbow! Best dropped into the frying pan just off of the hook.

Progress on the SBA has been slow. Trout season is open and today was a super day. My son and I got 20 or so, all catch and release. Some in the 2-3 lb region.

I'd recommend pre-shrinking the tissue on a frame before application!  Framework looks great so far! Smiley

Wow, not much wood in that one Ian!  Should be very light, covering will likely test your delicate touch.

Today I did the tail feathers and fuselage. I went with laminated 1/32nd since the original was bamboo. I am going to use a removable 1/8" noseblock, so a slight adjustment to the nose design will happen. That won't hurt, since I expect that more nose weight will be needed anyways.

I was looking around for a peanut plan and ran across this 1932 Jimmy Allen plan for the Fokker Triplane on HPA. Definitely a stand way way off scale. But interesting. Did the wings last night and this afternoon. Weight 1.17 g.

I think this plane can be made to fly well.

Here are the key points in order of importance (IMHO):
1. Center of gravity: make sure the plane balances (as if in level flight) at the CG shown in the plans.  If no CG is shown, set it for 1/3 the way back from the leading edge along the chord.
2. Geometric symmetry: Carefully sight from the front along the center line as if the plane were flying directly at you.  Slowly pitch the plane up and down.  Do all of the flying surfaces present identical angles (left side vs. right side) to your eye?  If not, attempt to adjust so that they do.
3. Is there some positive decalage? I.e., is the wing at a slightly higher angle of attack compared to the stabilizer? The wing should have maybe about three degrees higher angle of attack compared to the stabilizer.

i think those are the key things that when correct will get you into the ballpark and will enable you to make your Taylorcraft fly right.
