Like with most finish jobs, most of the work is in the preparation. It's no different covering models with film. For sanding the surfaces you'll need a few grades of sandpaper/wet & dry, some light weight filler, a clean soft surface to place your components on and some sanding blocks and last but not least, a tac rag.
This is very important! Ensure you construct a left and right wing! We don't want to end up with two lefts or two rights.... :-)
The wing construction starts off the same way as the stabs. Firstly I cut out a couple of pieces of MDF upon which the wing will be built.
Before we get too far along into this build, and taking into consideration that this is a "first off", I thought it prudent to check the root rib fit against the fuse fillet. If there's going to be an issue, it's much better to find out before bits are glued together rather than after the fact... :-)
As with pretty much any model construction, the accuracy or straightness of the finished product is only as good as the board or bench upon which it's built. That said, "do yourself a favour" and ensure your building board or surface is flat and straight. The dividends paid in a better flying model are worth the expenditure on a nice flat surface.
This blog will detail the construction of the new Allure wing and stab kit. This kit has primarily been created to compliment the Allure Builders Kit offering but could also be used on the ARF version to reduce weight.
The wing and stab is of course Bryan Hebert's design but the internal framework design was done by Mark Hunt. Mark has done a fabulous job of the design with all the parts locking into each other and also integrating the jig to ensure things are built straight.
