I'm assuming that the stiff paper your speaking of is used for the cockpit combing and the fairings coming back from the Engine Cowl????

If you have some old manila folders you can use them to shape for patterns and use bond paper for the actual panels.  That's a smaller model so the bond paper is the way to go.  If it were a larger model I'd use the manila folder material for the actual panels.

I know you'll find a solution.

The next trick (challenge) is to add the stiff paper to the sides and top of the fuselage to give it the necessary shape. I will need to experiment as there are no patterns on the plans. If this is too difficult, I will make some formers and stringers.

The plans are very basic, and with the amount of improvisations needed for this one, it may as well be considered a "scratch-build" kit. Huh

Looks really good!
I have been looking at my plans collection lately and found the Guillows plans for that bird. I think yours looks much better and for sure lighter.
The one piece wing thing sure does solve alot of problems.

Wooo Hoooo,

Love the bones mockup.  Just something about seeing them come together!  Next comes the hanger flying with motor and gun noises.

She looks great.  The differences aren't uncommon from time to time. 

Very nice so far.

Fitting the assemblies together. Had to make a "dry run" as printwood and plans were slightly off.

Tom,
Thanks for the compliments! The trailing edges were on the printed sheets, and I touched them up with the curved end of the sanding block which worked out really well.

This should be fun to cover Huh

Nice looking fuselage...she's starting to come together nicely.  By the way, the trailing edge of your wing with the scallops.  How did you do that.  Cut, sand or what?  Looks great by the way.

One piece wings are a lot easier to work with.  Helps in keeping things in alignment.  Good luck with your triplane.  Bipes were enough work for me to align...three wings are definitely doable but I'll leave that to you for now.   Grin Cheesy Wink

I think you'll appreciate this modification.

Fuselage side started. Opted to go with one piece wing mounting for better alignment.

Tom, I liked your idea for this from your Easy Built Spitfire. This should make it easier with three wings to mount.

We're all nestled, up close to our screens,
waiting to see more pieces on the green. Grin Wink

Coming along nicely.  With your skills.  Better get ready to mass produce! Smiley

Wee three wings of the Drei-decker are,
going together with ease so far...
