    Cool! Cool! Cool!

    I can't believe I missed this thread until now! I saw a show not too long ago about this and was amazed at how much I was unaware of this project. (And I think of myself as knowledgeable on aircraft....geez!)

    Alcides it is wonderful, guess I need to start saving up for Rhino and get off my backside and learn how to do this!

    I will keep up on this thread now that I found it...............

    John thanks for your kind words. I wait for more suprises, for example the "real Indiana Jones fly wing" :wink: shhh

    John

    Do you remember and old, old thread about certain argentine plane in the Malvinas war .... well I've told you I started to learn Rhino that argentine plane isn't now so far away.

    Wow! Great project. This is like the next step after Luft 46. I really like jets of the WWII and post-WWII era. :)

    MY FAULT ON THIS ONE, not Alcides'. I shoulda study in detail the air intake.

    I forgot to say that since this is a Beta build, the paper IS NOT CARDSTOCK, is plain paper.

    I printed this way because I didn{t know if any special bending was going to be needed... silly yes, but I know now that after this build, I will print it in High Quality Bright Paper printed on a Toner Color Big Printer.

    Also here is my careless procedure on the fairings.

    I know it can be MUCH better.

    The tail. This piece doesn't have formers. Alcides I think a couple of stripes as formers should help on getting this part straight.

    AS you can see, the wing tips are separated pieces. That's a nice addition. I liked it.

    Nice, but I think that a somewhat more robust set of wing spars might be in order.

    Thicker cardstock for spars, but I think plain paper is great for the rest of the models. ...Alcides, was paper thickness accounted for during design?

    Gerardo

    Thank you !!! Again for the effort. I' taking notes:
    - Some markings to correct
    - Add formers to tail
    - Review the wing spars

    Rick

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Nezard

    I designed taking in account formers 1mm but I've forgot to tell this to Gerardo :cry: He's doing a very nice job without instructions.

    I've to go back to the design table ( Rhino , bah ).

    Regards

    Hello @all,
    I`m very impressed by the Pulqui II and I`m looking every day to this thread.

    Years ago, already a Pulqui II was availible by JF Schreiber Verlag Germany, but it`s long out of production; I think I built it 1965, but it`s lost since years and I didn`t find it anymore:(

    So your construction give me the hope to build it again

    Best regards

    Edi
