MPC Lunar Patrol, Part 3

Welcome to the Lunar Patrol build, part 3.

While the booster fins are undergoing the grain filling and sanding exercises, it's time to begin work on the gliders.

The wings and rudders are traced from the templates onto that fine sheet of C-grain....

Once cut out, all the like parts are pinned together and sanded to identical shape.  After a light sanding of the surfaces, all the parts are ready to be glued onto the glider fuselages.

Next, out comes the marking guide to layout the glue lines on the fuselage tubes for the wings and rudders.

Stay tuned.....

  1. Howdy,
    Just found your blog from YORF. Nice work on the Lunar Patrol, I had one years ago bought from a fellow student who preferred slot cars over rockets. Reading over your progress makes me want to dive in elbows deep on one myself. Keep up the great work!
