Modifying Balsa Plans

If you build foam board models from balsa model plans, occasionally you need to modify the drawings; add doublers, change the LG mount, etc. With a few drawing or drafting tools it is easy to do. I use the cutting mat board along with a T-square and 45˚ triangle to add details to plans before cutting them out to make templates.

I found that you can redraw the plan parts on ruled graph paper, (I use A1 sheets) and then I am free to erase, modify, delete or whatever any bits I require. When done I just transfer the part plans to the FB directly using the old pin and join the dots method.

I have some plans that are years old and have 50+ models to their credit!

Just what works for me!

Have fun!
