Canadair CL-415 RC Plane Build Video Part 1

Hello everyone RC model plane enthusiasts rc plane in archipelago and in the world Thank you for this channel already passed 10K subscribers from 4K 3 months ago until now almost 11K subs thank you for your support one more time I feel that the tutorial that I gave to you pretty well accepted by you all I will continue this kind of tutorial thanks again for you who haven’t subscribe can do it now in this episode we’re going to make an amphibious plane which is Bombardier CL-415 this is the plane quite big the wingspan is the same from ATR 1.8 meter or 1800 mm in this model I try to make it more detail than previous ones that is, can you see there are pilots inside the plane? ok, those are the crew how to make the figure also covered on this video there’s a complete tutorial for it I designed this model plane to be able to take off and land on water as you can see here there is the hull all landing gears are upped but don’t worry for you guys that have no access to body of water or hard to reach or too far like myself I planned to try on water just 2-3 times the rest will be take off from ground so I made this can be use on land as well this is how this is fake wheel, carved from foam this one also from foam detach all this one also detachable can be switched with wheels put it here just push it up the front landing gear complete with doors and then the other wheels like this ok this can screwed in 3 ponts attach this one ok this is the version with landing gears there’re 2 versions that you can set if you want it dedicate this only for water landing you don’t need to cut the front landing gear well you don’t need to make this one the landing gear platform this is quite heavy if you only use in water you don’t need this and without front wheels ok that’s it, we go straight to the building process print the plans on A4 size paper or you can use letter for you on the north american region cut the plans on the outlines with sharp hobby knife use plastic ruler if needed to help cutting you can use scissors instead of cutter knife if you don’t used to it also cut holes inside the plans combine separated plans together according their number by using small tape On here mentioned 2X mirrored meaning, that we need to cut this part 2 times for left and right side so the other one always in the opposite trace plans with ballpoint pen on top the depron foam also trace holes inside the fuselage walls

cut the foam with sharp cutter knife draw a line along the center of two small boxes for guidance for former attachment the marked sides will be on the inside cut front landing gear door on plans and then trace that plans on both hull’s part this drawing will be on the bottom outside bend the 2 parts of the hull by heating it on top of a heatgun and then rub it against a metal pipe like this and the continue doing the same way for the fuselage walls pay attention the marked sides are on the inside for combining both hull parts we need to sand some inside part so the seam will be well fit put both hull parts on top a table with opposite direction ready to join apply glue on the center of the joints approx. 10 cm long also apply glue on the former on the triangle sides and then combine all 3 parts and hold them still for about 30 seconds until the glue is set and then continue glueing bit by bit untill the hull is formed hold still for 30 seconds for each glueing we’re going to make a front landing gear well for detachable landing gear cut the hole on the bottom of the hull by holding the knife straight up don’t throw away the cut piece we will need that to close it again when using the plane on water sand the bottom sides so it will have a slope surface to fit on the inside of the hull so it can have tight joints apply glue on the front side first and then attach it to the hull and hold it still until the glue is harden and then continue applying glue on the well walls after the glue is harden, apply glue on the seams to make it water tight and then close the hole with existing part from the plan just like the bottom of the hull we need to sand the bottom edge of the fuselage walls and upper edge of the hull

to have a tight joint apply glue on formers and upper hull edge and attach the fuselage wall continue glueing fuselage wall until reaching the curved area and then glue the other wall glue all until reach the curved side continue to glue the curved side bit by bit sand the lines on the inside of the wall so the formers can have stronger bond start attaching formers, start from the back if the tip of the hull often opened, use masking tape to join it we will attach upper part of the front fuselage we bend it with heatgun and metal pipe attach part for the beginning of wing fairing by sanding the bottom edge first so it will be fit with the other parts sand all edges except the front edge so it will be fit with other parts including the fuselage walls attach the next part this step is optional you can choose whether to use cockpit interior or not if not you can skip this step and continue to other steps I mix black and white asturo acrylic paint to be grey paint the interior cabin, sand it first before painting bend part for upper nose parts attach upper cheek of the plane first start from the left side and then after the glue is harden then continue glueing the center and the right side and then join the cheek and the cockpit roof cut this part by following the outline if you cut this part according to plan’s outline you don’t need to do this combine together the 2 parts for the cockpit roof by sanding all joint edges so it will have a tight joint and then attach the cockpit roof

continue assembling the nose parts cut all parts for main landing gear platform from 3mm plywoods assembly the main landing gear platform with CA glue start from the inside parts place the side with a single hole on the upper side add 10 mm eva foam on top of each holes stack 2 foams together and fix it with CA glue these eva foam function is to grip the landing gear wire when attached to the LG platform then close with side parts and make sure the hole’s orientation is correct use a screwdriver to puncture the foam through the hole on the plywood on the other side puncture all the foam dry fit the tail hull parts on top main landing gear platform check on the plans, for these part orientation sand the joint edge put the 2 hull parts on the table apply glue on the center and also apply glue on the main LG platform and then combine them together continue joining the hull parts a bit by bit until all is jointed sand the front edge on the bottom side of the tail wall so it can have tight joint attach the tail wall a bit on the root after the glue is set, continue glue all edges continue by attaching the opposite wall and then combine the tail section with the nose section use the upper edge of the wall to be the orientation anchor cut the landing gear well

attach these parts on the back of the hole as wall bridge to connect tail wall to the main LG platform sand the edge if too big use 30 cm bicycle wheel spoke wire with 2.5 mm diameter for main landing gear wire bend and shape the wire according to this plan’s drawing we need 3 unique bended wires like this for each LG total we need 6 wires mark the cut line with masking tape cut the wire insert all wires on the 3 holes on guide part from 3mm plywood put the longest wire on the front depending on which side you working on we will make right side LG wrap around the 2 wires near the wheel shaft with sewing thread and CA glue and then insert the final wires on the upper hole and bind them together also with sewing thread and CA glue bend the 2 lower wires so they will straight parallel to the upper wire insert the LG 3 wires to the holes on main LG platform on the fuselage and then mark the outside border with masking tape wrap around sewing thread approx 1,5 mm from the shaft root and apply CA glue to the thread as an inside stopper for the wheel put the wheel down to the shaft and use sewing thread again as a stopper use 0.3 mm mica plastic and then cover it with masking tape on the front and back sides as platform for LG screw and rudder hinges

cut the plastic 1 cm wide and then cut like this make 3 pieces for each LG remove the masking tape from the wire and then attach the mica plastic right on the marked position with sewing thread and CA glue and then attach on the rest of the wires too puncture the mica for inserting screw attach the LG and screw it into its position use screws from servo make shaft and front landing gear like this cut 4 cm wire for the shaft bend wire 90 degree and 5 cm from the root and then bend again 90 degree to the side cut the excess wire covering the upper wire with masking tape for easier glueing to the plywood drill around the wire with small 1.5 mm drill with 0.5 cm interval sew the LG wire with nylon thread through the holes then apply CA glue to the thread when finish glue the shaft with hot glue first so it will stick on its place we needed and then wrap around the shaft to the LG strut with sewing thread and CA glue and then put 2 wheels on the shaft and add stoppers stack 4 sheet of foams like this glue the front LG to the block of foams and dry fit the front LG inside the front LG well now the front LG can be detachable make the same stack of foams and then attach a support part on top of it and then insert it inside the front LG well and then glue the landing gear door that we already cut earlier in this video on the support part then wait until the glue is harden now the front LG well can be close when the plane is use on the water we’re going to make front LG door for detachable LG to add scale looks use 0.3 mm mica plastic

and trace the plan and make 2 of them fold the plastic like this before paint it paint with white glue both doors on the front LG base with UHU glue we come back again working on the tail I worked on LG first on purpose so it will have stable platform on both wheels instead of leaning on its side on the table attach former inside the tail free to pick the place as long the tail wall is maintained straight make a hole on the former with solder to make way for the tail servo cables glue the top cover of the tail 10 cm first on both sides make sure tip of the tail is straight up 90 degree when glueing the top cover glue it bit by bit left and right, side by side until all edges are glued draw rudder lines according to plans on the outside and 2 lines for spar on the inside bend both parts for ver-stab by heating it on top heatgun and the press and rub it on metal pipe while slightly bending it cut the small rectangle on the center and then reinforce the edges with pieces of ice cream stick wood this hole is for inserting hor-stab spar glue 2 foam spars right on top guide lines do not before or after the line, but right on top the line sand leading and trailing edges until it have slope edge so it will have tight joint and then glue first both leading edges and leave it until the glue is harden and add glue on both spars and trailing edge and press down to let the glue cooled down approx. 1 minute after the glue is set, sand both edges until curved cut rudder part mark 1 cm from the rudder root and then cut it sand the edges and glue it into a sheet of foam and let the glue set cut the excess foam and glue it again to another sheet of foam and again let the glue set cut the excess foam and refine it and then sand it until curved cut 2mm wide on the upper side of the rudder so the rudder can move freely later on also do same for the tip on ver-stab

cut servo hole according to plans servo is on the left side add styrofoam for support servo use mica plastic as rudder hinges use PVA glue to glue it I just want to put the rudder on its place without glueing it because it’s not covered yet we’re going to make ver-stab support mast with 3 mm plywood sandwiched with 2 sheet of foams glue the support mast on the back of the front spar make sure it’s in the center make correction before glue is set also add a sheet of foam on the back of support mast to make sure it can’t move make hole on top of the tail dry fit the ver-stab make the hole larger if it doesn’t fit and or cut the bottom of the support mast so it fill fit perfectly make sure the end of the rudder match the tail tip I use Propan Aqua Putty for patch the dents or gaps use it as minimum as you can after the putty dry off, sand it with 240 grit sandpaper if needed you can add a bit of water to make the process faster I use white packing tape to cover all surface or this model plane cover the bottom seams first by cutting the tape in small pieces cover it from the back to the front to minimize water to penetrate from the front close and cover the gap on the tail tip continue covering the seams from back to front after all seams are covered now we’re going to fully cover all surfaces with tape from back to front overlap with tape on this hull break and refine it with small iron cut the tape in 1/3 wide for covering the nose

I will cover the nose section with Oracal vinyl stickers for easier painting we will paint the nose section with black color cover the other surface with masking tape and newspaper I use red painted vinyl stickers for the red band across the fuselage insert pilot and copilot figure into the cockpit cabin to make these figures will be covered on the next video ver-stab also covered with Oracal vinyl stickers and painted with diton red signal we will make radome that is on the nose tip

stack 6 sheet of foams and then shape the foam to form a rough cylinder with knife and then sand it until become smooth cylinder cut and adjust the base of the radome to match the nose tip then we’re going to make fake wheels from foam this dummy wheels will be placed beside the landing gear well on the side of the plane when take off from water sand until it become like the wheel on the right paint it with black acrylic paint use mica plastic to make the alloy wheels we will make a base for attaching the dummy wheel assembly these parts the biggest part already covered with packing tape glue the dummy wheel on the base like this add additional details with plastic straw painted with silver the dummy wheel will be placed like this I use 3mm eva foam for cockpit window rim cut it in 2-3 mm wide if you can’t find eva foam, you can use small cable or small rolls of paper and then attach the foam on the window lines with CA glue just use a bit of CA glue do not use excessively, or it can damage the foam use UHU glue to glue the windshield after waiting about 30 seconds until the glue is set attach the windshield starting from the middle and pull it to each sides and attach other accessories detail from mica plastic on the nose section I use wasted marker to be additional details for lading gear pain it with silver cover some parts on LG struts with masking tape to make it easier to glue accessories parts this part is made from depron foam covered with oracal stickers and painted silver and then glue LG accessories from wasted marker pen

finally coat the packing tape coating with clear doff spray varnish to sealed small gaps on packing tape coating this is my first water plane I hope it can make the plane water tight that’s how to do it the hardest part is landing gear and nose section make sure when you build the nose section, especially in front of the windshield just bend the sides not the center, leave it flat if the middle area is also bended, you will have difficulty when attaching the windshield so this area needs to be flat the middle is flat and the sides are curved that’s all the next part is the wing I haven’t decided yet whether the wing in two pieces on each sides or full wing, maybe I’ll go full wing or maybe 3 pieces 60% and 20% on each sides ok that’s all see you on the next episode
