You're suppose to do it the hard way. just joking. looks good. why did you use rubber o-rings for tires?

The rubber o-ring was just a crazy idea. I rolled the paper like you did but use a tool to spin and sand. Or would it been better to hand sand them do you think? Still a lot to bo yet. Not a race, right?

yep, looks good. if I would have thought of it I would have used a dremel tool.
I saw that link that Dremel Drill Press. that is awesome. my dad only has a hand Dremel tool.

That's what I have. A friend on mine(Bob) did a set of tires he needed and that's how I found out about it. I clued 20 pieces of card stock 1110 together and sanded it down the size and shape he needed. I went your way to make the wheel and then sanded it down. What link are you talking about? I didn't see that one. I took the day off from modeling today and got into some other things. Lazy day today. Back to the grind tomorrow. Some time over weekend I have to mow the front lawn.

I've been away from my model for a few day so this morning I glues the wings in and look what I now have. Is this a mess or is this screed up? This Piper Cub is going to take for ever. I guess I'll start ALL over again and try to correct my mistakes. If I can find them. I just don't beleave this.

Well my first few tries were very bad. They could have been considered tape models because I was using tape to hold them together. So don't feel so bad. Practice and Experience is the key.

I found something fo cut wheel better I think. Gluing as many thicknesses of paper as need then use this tool to cut the size. From there is't just a mater of sanding with the drill.

Almost there and happy with her.

Its a long ways from good but I can live with this one. Have you had a chance to make that tutorial for building your engine yet? I keep looking at your photos and I just can't see it yet. I've been working on other aspects of the plane after taking a break from her. I can't make out the detail in your photos of your engine. Thank you Tim. I really appreciate all your help on this bird. Hows the 109 or did you say you were going to start on a P-51? Been a while since I have heard from you. waddy/john

I'll finish the small model of the cub I'm doing then I need to finish a model of butler class destroyer escort for Phigmint a fellow member then I'll get to work on one of those projects.
what you can do with the nose of your cub for now is: lightly glue it to the rest of the fuselage, then when I get to doing the engine you can take off the nose, so that you don't have to do it all over again.

Today was going to be the day to glue the wing in but as you can see there seems to be something wrong. Ti me the wing sits to forward and why is there so much white around the wing showing. Is this the way it's suppose to be? I got the nose worked out just waiting for the engine. As this is my first model I know expect to have several part of the model not correct but this is a lot ore then I thought.Wold you happen to have any idea how many times I'm suppose to chuck this model away and start over again? I am not very happy with what I have made. waddy
