Some pics of the finished joiner mould and fuselage positive.





The joiner mould is ready for wax, just waiting for EMC Vega to deliver it... -It came out ok, the finish could have been better, but hey, it`s just the joiner... Also a picture of the fuselage positive with tailplane held on with some tape. Next up is tailplane mounting. I will make a jig for this to make sure it`s going to be absolutely straight.

Btw. The 2k. paint problem is solved. But I need to do some testing before useing it as surface coat on my positives.

Hi Chets,

You can actually get 2k. but only in limited colors. they use it on big trucks.. Its really expensive tough.. and the hardener contains Isocyanates, which is really bad... So I`m only gonna use it for the positives.. for moulding, I`m using vorgelat.

Really impressive...

Our Europhia wing joiner mold is made out of Aluminium, it's easier to make I think.

Can post pictures if you like..

Hi Attila, The reason for not making the mould in alu. is cost. This mould did only cost me 15 euros and alot of work. Pictures would be nice.
