At this point I am ready to build the center section and add the balsa sheeting to the wing of my radio control plane, making balsa sheeting is easy when you follow a few simple rules. You can see the steps for this in the balsa sheeting post. Creating proper balsa sheets is one of the most important steps when it comes to a professional looking sheeting job.
Completing Center Section
As you can see here, I begin with an important step with any rc model plane…setting up the structure and aligning the parts perfectly to the plans. As always, I use a magnetic building board to build all my rc airplanes from scratch. If you get the alignment and layout right for your wing center section, then you will be buildnig like a pro too. Using a square and magnetic vises, I hold the center section to my sheet metal board.
After confirming the alignment of the ribs, I can continue to add more magnets to hold the rest of the wing center section in place.
