Check out this awesome project by fellow club member Robert Steiger.
DHC Beaver Kit Build
"This is a kit I got from Mustache Model Works, I have spent about 110 hours building this kit. The kit was laser cut and all parts go together very well, even so I would not say that it is an easy kit to build. Not many modification were done but required a lot of patience and a handful of skill to get through the build"
Just a reminder to all members dues are due for 2019. All members must renew by December 31st.
A big thanks to Roberto for sharing his DIY Modular Plane Storage Rack. For anyone interested in building one he has supplied us with a complete list of materials and some photos to help anyone through the process.
The initial expense will be 24.00 for the 2 uprights. If you have a choice go for 10 inch brackets with extensions on Oak Dowels, the total cost per plane after that is 15.25 more or less for each pair of supports to store a wing or a plane. The dowels can also extend longer if 2 planes or wings will be stored on one stack. This is the initial idea that can be fully customized to suit each individual needs. Planes will be off the floor and onto a safe wall space.
The Completed Rack
The picture below shows a 10 inch bracket with a 14” dowel covered on foam insulation. The dowel is secured to the bracket by 2 screws that are different in length.
Congratulations and thank you to Dean and Pat for becoming club instructors. Dean will be listed as a club instructor and Pat will be one of the first "Apprentice" Instructors for the club. See our club instructor page for more information!
