Thanks Paul, sheet 2 is almost done and all formers and sub formers are finished as well, she is pretty much ready to build and I have all mechanical parts already built as well. I will post more pictures on Monday.

Cheers, Ray K.

Hi Paul,

I would send you the gears needed for this as well as plans and pattern sheets, just want to see if it will be easy for someone besides me to build.

Cheers, Ray K.

Ray I would give it a go. Have to get the stuff to make the gears and info from you. May take me a bit to build but would be a fun project to do. My hand is doing better but still alot of trouble doing the finish work at this time. Thanks Ray.

Hi Paul,

This one is pretty simple, as you see by the drawing I was going for keel and former construction, but I decided to redo this drawing and make it side frames and sub former construction, less balsa used, lighter construction, I will have the new sheet # 1 drawing done by tomorrow, this would be a good helicopter model to start with, mechanics are pretty simple and the co-axial gear box is not hard to build.

If you would like to try one, I will be looking for someone to try and build this as a test once I have all the drawings done.

Cheers, Ray K.

Hi Paul,

I hunt around until I find a plastic gear that I think is close to what I need then I just machine these gears into what I want, I make the gears thinner, lighter by adding lighting holes, change the bore size, ect, once I get the gears to where I want them then I make a master silicone mold of the modified gears and now I can cast as many as I want.

Cheers, Ray K.

Hi Ray,
When you make the plugs for the  gear molds, do you use metal ones or do youcarve the gears out. I always wanted to do this just have not had time to research it. Thanks for sharing skill and knowledge.

You and me both brother, the process of making gears is really not that hard, most important thing is getting the silicone mold right, you have to work it to get all the air bubbles out and get the silicone in all the nooks and crannys before it starts to set up, air bubbles ruin molds, casting them are easy, you just have to be fast on the pouring after mixing the stuff I use sets up in 3 minutes so time is critical.

Cheers, Ray K.
