    Metric paper weight

    hi,
    I bought your wonderful model, but 8) , as often it happens to me, I have some problem with the weight of the paper when it is expressed in lb. I am Italian and in Italy we use the metric measure also for the weight of the paper.
    Can you help me? I read on the instructions of assemblage that for sheets 1 and 2 is necessary to use 20 lb paper: which weight in grams/sq meter? which metric weight then for 60-110 lb cardstock ?

    Thanks Nando

    Hi,
    20lb equals 75g/m2 - this is a regular printer paper
    110lb equals 199g/m2 - card stock

    Some variation is of course possible.

    Sale of Super Corsair temporarily suspended

    Sale of the model is temporarily suspended.
    This will give the author a chance to refine and correct any issues that could crop up in his design.
    Everybody who already bought the model will receive a free replacement Super Corsair and 25% discount on the next purchase as our apology for any inconvenience.

    If anybody decides to take advantage of this offer, simply drop me an e-mail or PM and I will refund the difference.

    Hi Nando,
    I will send e-mail with the link to download the new version as soon as Will makes it available.
    As for the changes - I don't really know.
    I follow Will's build report here http://www.cardmodels.net/forum/showthread.php?t=5129&page=2
    but the only issue so far was an upside-down slot in one former....

    Correction to Super Corsair

    Hi,
    Will just sent me a correction sheet for his Super Corsairs.
    Please visit Downloads to download it.

    If you are building the model with flaps in UP position, there is a 1/16" gap at the top of the wing.
    We apologize for any inconvenience.
