Ray S Posted February 3, 2022 Share Posted February 3, 2022 Hello all, I would like to ask for some advice from the BM Massif please! I have recently been given a book about T O M Sopwith and his aircraft, and it is full of 1/72 scale plans, and one in particular has caught my attention, and as there is no kit available, I would like to scratchbuild it. I am quite okay with most of the aircraft and how to build it, but not the wings. I have googled scratchbuilding this scale and found 'immersing 30 thou card in a 4" pipe into boiling water' and 'gently bending' 30 thou card, along with ways that are not really applicable to this scale (balsa coring then skinning with 5 thou card). My initial thought was to wrap some card around the outside of a cylinder and pop that into boiling water Can anyone give me any more advice please on how to produce the wings? I do not need control surfaces as this type was a wing-warping job so I have a slightly easier task. This is what I would like to attempt, the Sopwith 3-seater tractor biplane https://flyingmachines.ru/Site2/Crafts/Craft25672.htm Many thank for reading this, and hopefully for some useful replies.
