The Dutch bomber group that my ill fated BV-215 was to belong to. Waterslide decal sheet.

After a little regrouping, the wing rebuild commences. I had scanned all the laser cut parts before I began the build which turned out very helpful. As was my preference to use little individual building boards. All the shims are still intact. This will be the second time to rebuild wings on this model. Should go fast. Third times' the charm! ;D.

Acrylic ink. Water soluable until it dries then it's definitely permanent. The Cover-Lite is non-pourous so it took a couple layers to get full opacity. It does wipe off with dope thinner ;o). About 20 drops did 2-3 coats of entire upper surface. This will be awsome on tissue. Full color range including pearls. Just use the dropper and drop into the airbrush cup. Better clean up fast though.

Creosotewind, one could clamp (or glue) two single edge razors together and use to score (cut) the panel lines. Dig out the middle. This was in aircraft birch ply. Net groove width: .010" ; the width of the blade. Space it for wider lines.

Something like this. I flush mounted some 1/64" ply to the top surface as a base to mount stuff to.

Put the "Dog Leg" into it for adjustability. Flying wings typically don't need very much control surface deflection. To reduce control throw initially I will be able to open up the angle of the Dog. I made the loop to ensure I don't work harden and snap the wire when adjusting. Plus if you guys have'nt guessed yet, I kinda like bending wire. ;o)

Since there are so many funky angles, I'm bending some torque rod/control horn linkages. Pushrod is .015 Dia.. Torque rod is .030 Dia.

Although further away, this shot is more indicative of the true color.
