Cliff Charlesworth Reiher II

Post by Martin Gough » 01 Jun 2018, 18:01

Thought I would start a build thread of my Reiher II. Not built a model since I was 12 years old a Keil Kraft Chief.
Any advice would be appreciated along the way.
Regards Martin.

Looks like you haven't lost any of your building skills.
You might consider covering the plans with plastic to keep them clean and damage free. I use industrial stretch wrap.

Slow progress but back on it now doing the odd hour here and there.
Done my first ply sheeting to the fuselage after watching the Ghost Squadron video's on how
to do it. Worked out really well quite surprised myself.

Martin, are you making your Flettner Tab functional like I have on the Charlesworth K8 ? The detail is not heavy being all ali construction. Regards John.

Hi John

I have seen another builder who omitted the tab but thought it would be a
nice detail to add in an operational state. Be interesting to see how it effects
the elevator.
How did it work out on your model?

Regards Martin.
