So now on to the fuselage and planning for cable control rather than the original pushrods.

So now onto the bottom wing and the first challenge is the bottom rear spar which is doing a good impression of a banana! Hopefully the warp will steam out, otherwise I'll raid my stock and cut a new one.

Re: Veron Tiger Moth

Well that was a traumatic session - firstly the sweep was the wrong angle, (through my trusting the triangular strip angles and not building over the plan), and then through misreading the instructions I joined the wings using the bottom wing dihedral. So both times I have had to gut the panels apar...

Re: Veron Tiger Moth

Well after a lot of expletives the wings are now joined ready for the building up of the centre section. Wings Joined.jpg Initially I misread the plan when building up the panels. If you look at the image of the plan on the earlier post you will see that where the spars meet the centre section there...

Re: Veron Tiger Moth

Well I now have the starboard top wing done. Top Stbd Wing.jpg Next is to attack the centre section. A strange build up for this bit and the instructions don't help by referring you to wood sizes that are not in the kit! But no worries - I have a good stock if necessary. Here's the top centre sectio...

Re: Veron Tiger Moth

OK - so with the basic structure of the fuselage complete this is put on one side and I take a look at the partially completed wing panel. This required patching of some of the sheeting, scarfing in of part of a spar where it had broken off and adding of parts not yet done. Not a big task but fiddly...

Re: Veron Tiger Moth

So now on to the next bit of electrification, the battery/ESC tray. I decided to mount the tray such that it can be reached from a removable part of the fuselage top, from the front cockpit to the rear of the cowl. The first step is to attach the mounting blocks ensuring that they are in line and bo...

Re: Veron Tiger Moth

As mentioned earlier I am using the cowl from the DB Sport & Scale Tiger Moth E kit as one of the Veron cowl parts has gone walk about. In fact the DB one seems to be closer to the Tiggy shape so it could work out better, however the cowl is different from the Veron one and seems slimmer so a lot of...

Re: Veron Tiger Moth

Next thing to consider is the battery box. Plenty of room for the battery so the issue is to get it as forward as possible whilst maintaining access via some sort of removable hatch. The plan is to put a battery tray in the space just forward of the front cockpit former. However the position of the ...
