ASK13 1/3 Scale**

Post by Peter Balcombe »

A short kit of a new design from Jilles Smits arrived today, so no excuse for idle fingers over the next few months ;)

A lo..ot of laser cut parts ((all bagged) & several drawing sheets covering fuselage, wings, tail, canopies (full & cabriolet), airbrakes etc. on separate sheets. (Drawings arrive folded, but I like to roll them for use).

Conventional woodie construction with 0.4mm ply wing D box skins & 0.6mm skins on the relevant fuselage parts.
Build options include choice of canopy type and with/without nose wheel.

I should receive a bundle of strip wood for spars etc. tomorrow, so can make a start - probably on the tail feathers.

First up on the building board is the Stabiliser which slots together to form the structure shown below. Just needs a couple of spruce spars & tips to be to be added, plus 0.4mm skins to complete.
Two thin wing servos fit into the centre section from below, driving each elevator half separately.

This is one for me to watch, Peter. 8-)

Is that Finnish registration on the prototype, Cliff?

Cheers

Yes, I have those pics. Have tried to contact the club to see if they have any more including cockpit detail but alas no answer. I called the club on the phone but nobody spoke English and my French is at best crap! If you have an in there and can get some more info I would be extremely grateful.

Pretty in pink!
I liked the K13 a lot, it was a nice old lady to fly. I must build one some day.
I will watch this build with interest.
Brian :)
