T33 PSS build
I have decided to build a T33 for my PSS (powered scale soaring) entry for this years event. Here are some of the dimensions and my progress so far.
Span: 3.2m (with wing tanks).
Colour scheme: Miss America / Thunderbirds.
Wing section: SD6060 airfoil
Fuselage is styrofoam, cut in sections. The wall thickness will be around 2-3 cm. I will then glass the inside with 100 gr. glass. Then the two sides will be glued together.
Final shaping taking place now.
Outside will be glassed with 163 gr. glass. The whole fuselage will have one layer and the front front of the plane will have 2-3 layers extra.
The wings will have 3cm carbon joiner tube about 1.5m long. The wings & tail will be made from styrofoam and covered with 49gr. glass & “Gray Ash” 0.3mm veneer. I’m trying to keep this plane light.
I need someone to help with spraying and decals, anyone keen to help??
