Have you always wanted one of those 'Glass Super Ships.... but have never been able to justify the $700 to $1000 price tag? Or, have you been convinced that you could build a better design.... with better performance... but thought that you needed a CNC machine shop full of equipment to do it? Well, here is a video that will convince you otherwise.
Fred McClung is a retired engineer from Hughes Aircraft.....who developed a complete system for building a hollow composite molded sailplane... in the tiniest workshop I've ever seen. Using only common modeling tools and a vacuum pump, Fred builds plugs, molds, and finished aircraft. In about a year and a half, Fred has built over 50 finished Fred-a-Planes (his own F3B sailplane design)
While the video shows the construction of a sailplane, this technique will work just as well for building a power plane... a Quickee 500 racer... a pattern plane, or even a scale project.
Learn how to make a plug, build a mold, and then produce as many IDENTICAL aircraft as you like. This could be the basis for a great club building project!
