Hello

I finaly build the TA cutting parts the good olds school way but I buidb it with a twisted fuselage and it wont fly anyway it was fun to build it discovering the "fil in" method so I didn't loose time

I fall on the FAI plan on some web link and have been amaze by those plans details are really crazy and I start drawing the part on CAD of the Beechcraft staggerwings for 2 mains reasons the first is that there is no grey zone all parts are draw and the leanding gear look like a true challenge
I just cut the some rib in .5 mm balsa and it's realy close to the plan drawing
I'm drawing the fus parts and it's consuming a lot of time...

let show you some pictures of the ribs
thanks for looking

Niktus...
CAD can be a whole lot of fun.  I came across a free TurboCad several years ago.  It's no longer available and doesn't have the 3-D capability but does allow me to draw 2-D plans.  Sometimes when I don't feel like building I search the net for a three view that inspires me and I try to whip out a plan of it in usually 27" span. 
This is one of the many enjoyable aspects of this great hobby! 

I like the looks of your TA-152 I've looked at the "H" model extensively.  Often times the early plans we find on the net were drawn from the best available data at the time and because of that there are some inaccuracies due to unavailable information. 

Just be careful.  I found that even with the internet the drawings and 3-views available don't agree with each other.  So pictures and as much research as possible are necessary to come up with a fairly accurate plan. 

Then again, we are making semi-scale models in stick and tissue!  So it boils down to how much you want to invest in time, energy and resources to come up with your plan.   Keep up the good work!

hello
I'd like to show you some progress in my work, I 'm redrawing the plan of the TA 152  by Hal Cover from Flying Scale Models of WWII ,I discover  V Carve software while using a Shopbot CNC machine made for wood it's a long work because when you zoom on ligne draw with pencil it make a lot of wierd things

As you can see the layer in green is the correct copy of the side keel draw from the parts  sheet and it doesn't fit in the side view so I draw a new one in red that fit the stringer in the correct position  funny isn't it?

the other pic show the draw of the left wing the only one I will draw I decide to put CLARK Y profile instead of the original it was pretty easy to fin some point draaw of it and adjust it with scale to fit in the correct position

I dont blame Hal Cover is draw is shurely perfect but the scan of it and the effect of time on the paper make the work pretty hard

keep building and stay tuned CADer
