Making fighters.


Recommended Posts

I've now made a few fighters using the construction methods given with the plans for the F-3 fighter, available on-line. At present I'm just making 'trial' kites using paper sails [1.8oz/sq.yd.] and bamboo spines and bows ['Tiki torch' stock]. I'm really pleased by the speed of construction and the finished appearance of the kites. I've always had problems installing bows to my satisfaction. The photo corner method takes almost all the frustration out of the process.

If anyone has considered making a fighter but wasn't sure how to proceed, do check out the F-3 plans. They're as well-documented as anything I've ever seen.
