I finally started building a Carl Goldberg Senior Falcon. I’ve never had one, but have flown others’ airplanes. I’ve always wanted one because they are such good flyers, and excellent general-purpose models. The kit’s been discontinued for quite a while, so I’m building it from the plans. The kit is one of those where you can easily use the plans to build and entire model, if you’ve put a few together. There’s enough information to make wing ribs, fuselage formers, and all the other assorted parts.
Let’s get into the build.
I started-out by thoroughly examining the plans. You want to be very familiar with your modeling subject when you start a plans-build.
Then, you have to decide where you want to start
I decided to do the wing first, so I traced the shape of a rib,
and then transferred it to plywood.
This is an easy thing to do, and you don’t need to be perfectly-accurate. After all, you DO have sandpaper to fine-tune things.
Next, we’ll cut out the template and make some ribs. See you next post!
