CREATING THE FUSELAGE

 

Fuselage nets (2X)

We’ll start making by making the fuselage first; it is the easiest part to assemble, and you can gain some good skills in handling paper whilst assembling it.

 Scissors Begin by cutting out the white edges on the outside of the nets

Begin by cutting out the white edges on the outside of the nets (the white stripes on the paper edges). In the end you get two clean nets like below.

Fuselage net (1X)

Putting the net upside down and starting from the corner of paper opposite of the corner of the net, begin by rolling a tube of approximately ≈1cm in diameter. Aim for the front of the tube to be slightly wider (thicker in diameter) than the back (where the tail will be attached).

 
 
 

Glue

Glue the extruding corner from the tube to the tube’s body so that you secure the shape.

Second fuselage

Again curl the paper net into a tube like before, except now insert one end into the front of the previous tube you made. Make sure the diameters of both tubes are more or less equal at the junction of the two tubes and hence glue the tip of the paper from the second tube to the second tube’s body, securing its shape.

Scissors

Cut out the wing nets along with the tabs on them (the rectangles on the bottom of the net, the bigger ones are the tabs, the smaller are the spaces between them that you must cut out). In the end you should get wing nets like the one on the right.

Glue

Glue the wings into an airfoil-resembling lifting cross-section by gluing the top part of the wing ≈7 mm inside the trailing edge of the bottom part of the wing. This will create a curvature at the top. Do your best to keep the wing free of warps along the span; at the tip of the wing consult the pictures on the right for guidance- cut a small strip and curve the paper around it to finish off the wing. Do this for both wings. Then cut away excess paper on the trailing edge. GREAT JOB, you are done creating the hardest piece of your airplane!

Glue

Start out by gluing the wing of the side opposite to the hand you right with (ie. If you are right handed, glue the left wing first); it will be easier for you this way. Spread glue over all of the tabs carefully, be careful not to poor too much or else you’ll soak the tabs. Put the wing next to the fuselage so it is perpendicular to the vertical tail fin and begin to stretch the tabs over the fuselage, starting with the center tabs and moving outwards. In the end

Repeat the procedure for the second wing; try and get the positioning and dihedral of the second wing mirror the first one as close as possible. Congrats, you are done with creating the frame of the airplane!

Your own choice

The wheels you put on the main gear frame will act as a counterbalance to the tail. The CG of the plane will have to balance around mid- chord of the wings; therefore you must choose wheels that weigh what it takes to balance your aircraft at the mid-chord of your wings. The image on the left shows the wheels I made for this particular airplane.
