Hello. I am creating this thread to log the assembly of a B-25 Mitchell that I designed in Fusion 360 Cad software. I used some vintage plans off of AeroFred to get the basic shape of the plane and help me decide on former placement.
I already built a prototype and flew it, this is my attempt to document the assembly as a set of instructions.
Note: The builder should be familiar with Master Series foam shaping techniques. I will not cover that here, as there are plenty of FT videos on those techniques.
NOTE: Thea instructions reference part labels thy are laser etched into the part. Of you are hand cutting parts out from templates made from the plans, it is assumed that you transferred the labels when you cut the parts out. A lot of the instructions reference a part side by the location of the label.
Plans and an instruction manual that mimic this forum posts instructions can be downloaded on my web page and include full size and tiled pdfs:
I will also try attaching them to a post here.
DISCLAIMER: I have not tried assembling the split prints. Print all at your own risk. I would try one page first.
