Hoping that if it works well, my students will be able to glue the tail together, the wings together, and the fuselage to the wings and the tail in ONE step all in one class period, instead of gluing the wings together and letting them dry, then gluing the tail together and letting it dry, then gluing the tail to the fuselage and letting it dry, then gluing the wings to the fuselage and letting it dry, the gluing....

The current process:

Why don't you use the ZAP Cynoacrylic instant glue for model aircraft?

For one thing, that would be waaaayyyy to easy. For another thing, these are 7th graders we're talking about here... I'd rather NOT have them glue themselves to my tables. I'm not kidding.

Yup, some "CA" and an accelerator, and it'll be dry almost immediately.

That's what I used for the structure of my two planes. The skin was more of an Elmers glue and a heat gun to stretch and fit it properly.

OK I see your point.....Reminds me of a group of youth at a local Pizza place acting suspiciously, the waitress went to clear the table after they left only to find EVERY utensil, glass & plate stuck to the table!

You should see what they are capable of with a hot glue gun...

They don't pay you enough over there. And even if they did, they still aren't paying you enough. Great work!

I remember flying at Vichy airport. This was our micro recon vehicle; don't ask why we used a delta for a low-speed camera platform.

This project is way cooler than the key holder & common table project we had to make.

Completed it with the base side openings filled with colored acrylic "glass ring" panes so popular in the 70's!

I, for one, am a little disappointed not to see more of your work and drawings in here, Richard.
