Double Trouble Vol.1

Volume 1. Multi-engine subjects have always fascinated modelers and many consider them the ultimate thrill. The special sound alone is a great attraction. But, of course, there are risks ! Keeping these under control is just one of the many topics for discussion in this volume; such as finding dual opposite rotating engines, drawing ribs for tapered wings, plus the machining of prop nut adapters, and none of these are in previous Black Art volumes. ‘Techniques’ with great tips in the following order. Inspiration, IPMS Convention Tamiya Heinkel 219 kit Considering what engines ? Electric ? Size of model for engines ? Settling on 1/6 Scale Opposite rotating engines Lofting tapered wings Compufoil – drawing ribs Covering with heavy cloth Break down for transport Strong wing attachment Building wing panels Locating Aviastar engines Propeller considerations De-warp sheeted wings Machining prop nut adapters Flaps and doors Installing wing tubs.

Double Trouble Vol.2

Volume 2. With a ten foot twin under way, we find new topics such as; sheeting a leading edge, an engine cooling tunnel with flap, twin – elevator servos, landing gear doors, then plenty of opportunity for some easy metal work. And, as Dave shows, there’s nothing to be scared of; with a brief education on metal types plus some simple metal work, now “the model leaps forward on all fronts”. ‘Techniques’ with great tips in the following order. Operating flaps and doors Engine nacelles Engine cooling tunnel Special landing gear Mufflers and source Sheeting a leading edge Joining nacelle to wing Planking the nacelle Engine cooling door Cowling Building the fuselage Building the stabilizer Twin elevator servos Trial model assembly Klass Kote reference Hinging and driving LG doors Landing gear doors Metal work introduction Aluminum grading Oleo leg fork Sandblasting tools Cheap metalworking tools Making Oleo scissors Showing finished Oleo leg.  DVDT2

Double Trouble Vol.3

Volume 3. As we bring our Heinkel 219 to completion we get numerous topics to share, from getting realistic mottling to painting intricate stencils. Probably the most important segment comes when we show for the first time how to set up a throttle properly – a vital skill when getting ready to fly such a huge project as a ten-foot forty-two pound twin. Also shown, how to weigh and balance-check a big and heavy model so that it’s ready for flight. ‘Techniques’ with great tips in the following order. Weighing and balancing such a big model Setting model on scales Finding C.G. on a trike-gear model Finding C.G. on a tail-dragger model Making canopy joints invisible Peeling off canopy tape Wing leading-edge lights Grillwork in intakes Doing camouflage Stencils Source for panel-line tape Flush rivets Flush rivet tool Monokote for parting Scale props Transporting How air-bleed carbs work How modern carbs work Other causes of poor response Carb response demo 219 engines running.  DVDT3
