here's a shot of the TCS pod i'm working on.. I've still got to throw some hardwood in a lathe to mill out the lens' for it, but other than some finish sanding and glassing, i think its just about perfect! Figured i'd do something small since its been a long day and i'm gettin tired... might start on trimming out the blow-in doors as well...

Alright the fin fairings are done, I haven't done the rudder ones yet as i've still got to shape the rudder leading edges, and install the hinge gap seals. Then I can shape the rudder servo fairing and install the fairing to the rudders...

Got the wing leading edges prepared and ready for slat construction, the wing Trailing edge is installed, and i started drawing out the position of the flap leading edge, and the spoilers (which are tiny, only 1" wide at the root and 1/2" at the tip over a 28" span), so they will most likely be molded entirely of carbon fiber..
Now i am debating on making the "cove doors" functional or not.. it wouldn't be to hard..

This is such an in depth project already, my vote is with Bill, might as well go all the way and have no regrets....

I want to see how he builds the little guy to fly it. RC hell, we want a little person in there yanking on that yoke. Huge scale points for that. With all your fabrication talent what's a little gene splicing?

This build is amazing. How much modeling experience do you have? I'm guessing years and many many models.

Alright,
here's a shot of the wing so far.. I got tired of drawing on balsa, so figured i'd throw some masking tape on the wings to make it easier to erase any mistakes..

Everything you see in blue is either a spoiler, or a trailing edge flap gap seal.. the spoilers are mostly the center 70% of the blue portions. Everything aft of that, is the flaps. now that i have this figured out, i have to transfer it to the other wing panel.. ohh the joy!

here's a photo with both wing panels and the spoilers on them. I've got to transfer the outlines of the blue tape onto the balsa, and then remove the balsa wood, fill in the gap below the wing sheeting. All of that will be done after i remove the flap and cap its leading edge with a balsa stick. The wing trailing edge will also get a 1/4" thick cap to stiffen it up as well. I'll probably build the leading edge slats before i go any further with the flaps and spoilers, that way i can get the wingtips shaped and the inner balsa leading edge block (the one that will be going into the fuselage) shaped, then i can finish the wing panels and the fuselage glove sheeting.

After 2 1/2 hours of screwing around with leading edge slat construction (none of which came out worth a damn) i had a DUHHHHH moment. I realized about 2 seconds after ripping # 3 LE slat apart, that i do not have to build the slat to actually fit the wing plugs.. Soo now I get to do it the easy way... copy the wing-tip and root rib templates to ply, cut and sand them to shape, then carve 2 giant "slats" from solid balsa (of which, my 2"x2"x48" balsa blocks are now gone ) and then i'll have the plugs for the slats and they will be ready for glassing and detail. Should take all of an hour for each slat to do!

So no more pictures today. Since i'm out of big chunks of balsa, i'll probly laminate some 1/2" sheets together to the required size and thickness.. I may do this tomorrow.. Dont know, might just go fly instead

Awesome work and attention to detail.

Oh and BTW, that is the coolest looking painters tape I have ever seen.
