Satya's blog - Wings (extended)

Dec 08 2005 14:32 Wings (extended)
This was done in July but it's taken until now to post the blog entries.

Here we see a wing frame pinned to the plan. The ribs will be glued right onto the frame. The F14 has variable geometry, i.e. its wings can extend or fold close to the body to give a V-ish shape, So there are two versions of the wings. This is for extended, low-speed flight. The wings will stick straight out from the body. All four wings can be built from the materials provided. They can be changed out on the display model.

Here are the completed wings. The yellow spots are from the glue. The rib nearest the body is scored and bent at the score.
