When building the model copies of military aerolizer in the first place it is very important to determine the optimum copying scale. The fact that plus size the copy will be too heavy and planing can go OUT only with great difficulty and over a long time. On the small models have a problem of a different kind, first — side stability in curves. The fact is that regardless of the size and weight of model the weight of the plant-specific micro motor, internal combustion will remain almost constant. This means that on a small light model with a relatively narrow hull, the moment caused by the centrifugal force from the plant on a steep turn, may lead to the overturning of aeropittura, especially in case of an unsuccessful meeting with the wave at high speed.
For plant-based compression motor working volume of 2.5 cm3 and a power of the order of 0.3—0.4 L. E., can be considered the optimal model with a length of about 600-700 mm and a total weight of 1-1,2 kg. under such dimensions and was designed offered to your attention the machine.
Case design is typical for all similar models. The manufacture and Assembly of its simplified by the fact that almost the entire length of the deck of the boat absolutely flat (there’s only a slight bend in the bow). This allows you to assemble the frame and sheathe it when not shooting with flat Board stocks, where stiffeners are attached without complex additional reducers.
The frames are cut from waterproof plywood with a thickness of 2 mm, with the exception of the transom Board, which is cut out of plywood with a thickness of 4 mm. From two-millimeter plywood is made and the two notched plates of the bow (keel and deck). All the slats of the longitudinal set of vystragivaetsja grained pine and are constant along the length of the cross section of 3X3 mm. When mounting the bilge stringers will inevitably have problems with their forming in the bow of the hull where the curvature of the cheekbones are very large. It is therefore useful, collecting frames with the rest of the stringers on the stocks, at first, to steam the zygomatic Reiki, “seniority” them on the case and only after the wood dries to glue the stringers in place.
All the elements of the trim panel cut out templates of paper and millimeter plywood as the deck of a boat. During installation of the sheathing boards is also useful for stew plywood in the nasal areas, where the curvature of the sheets is great. Gluing is carried out, as the rest of the model building, epoxy resins. To be tightly pressed against the plywood to the hull to help different “pegs”, rings, sheet rubber and sewing pins. After curing epoxy resin allowances are cut and covering the entire outer surface is carefully ground with emery paper of different grits.
Access perednezadny compartment equipment radio — through the open front, the volume of the cockpit. Of course, all the components of the apparatus can be installed directly in the cockpit. However, this would accurately simulate the details of the copy and place the layout crew. But the main thing — in this case, the model would have to weight in the bow for the desired alignment, as this copy has an extremely posterior position of the plant. Servos instrument easily installed under the seats where the most is simply to provide access to their levers.
Pylon engine mount with the best done of metal, it will increase knot strength and eliminate vibration of the engine. The pylon struts should be scale adjustable in length. This is important because due to the selection of the installation angle of the engine could largely rid the airboat from the trend to jump on a large wave or “galloping” on average.
Ending a copy of the combat glider, try not to rush and to the maximum extent reproduce the finest detail of two units: the machine gun and the M-11. The fact that these large items will be “business card” of your skill, and that their quality will determine the class aerolizer as copies as a whole. Of course, we should not forget about the other “small things” — bollards, anchor, hatches and signal lights (although relatively small size) also determine the perception of the copy.
The color is made by traditional methods. Below the waterline of the boat was painted red, and the top had informal geometry camouflage pattern made up of squares of light gray, dark gray and gray-blue colors. The metal parts copies, you can perform dark grey. The seat upholstery is brown leather. Pylon power plant and the surface of the tank under the metal (or light grey). Cylinders simulate engine M-11 should be black, like exhaust pipes. Propeller the color of dark stained wood with brass ferrules front edges. On the outer sides byshooting shields you need to put red star in a white thin border. The rudder is painted red.
On the Microdrive KMD-2,5, which was mounted on the copy, installed a homemade air radiolaboratory and wooden screw 220X130 mm.
