Guillows Series 500 - BF 109 by pfinn
pfinn1911 winner in the model contest. Must have been a very long exposure. The lighter areas of the image are "Ghosts" of the attendees walking past. There's a couple that may have stood still for a moment if you look closely. Their position looks like they may have been caught through a reflection of some sort. Really nice model.
LASTWOODSMANA very nice model of an early pusher canard found on random images.

Flyline Models Stearman C3B by Huey V77
Huey V77Oops, new copilot, 5mths old HALO, road kill pose....
LASTWOODSMANLOL - Huey - you're killing me here - "road kill pose"? I once saw a groundhog laying flat as a rug under a half ton truck beside one of the tires. I thought it was run over a few times, until it got up and ran away ... Then there's this redneck with a bumper sticker on his half ton - "lose your cat? - check under my tires" ...

All of the float formers are now "double white glued" into place and allowed to dry.

The float formers are all notched and sized using a small piece of 1/16" square stringer, and are ready to glue to the open keel sides of the float.

All of the crossmember planks are sandwiched snugly on each side of each, finished side float former, and this holds everything very securely, to provide a solid surface, of the open bare side (no formers) of the keels. This setup is extremely handy when gluing down the side formers, and pushing down on them and positioning them. It also provides a very solid base when gluing on the stringers after the formers have dried.

The crossmember planks are then slipped in UNDER the top and bottom center keels, with the crossmember plank ends sitting ON TOP of the rails, where they are pinned in place. The Rails are just high enough to raise the side edge of the finished former side, just above the building board.

The Rails are 1/4" X 1/2" X 12" hard stick balsa, and the Crossmembers are 1/16" X 3/8" X 3" balsa planks. The crossmembers do not slide, but are pinned down to the rails, snugly sandwiching and holding each former.

The Float lies sideways in the jig, with the top "flat" of the float, which is formed by the top flat edge of the formers and the top of the upper center Keel, - that flat is sitting flush to the nearest rail.
