Ka-4 ZS-GED Foam work

The cutting was done on my building buddy Peter’s foam cutter and was straightforward.
The span 4.1m with a rootcord of 420mm.

Note the standard betteypack in the center of the wing.

This is the solid block of foam for the fuselage.

I set up my bow vertically to rufcut the top shape of the fuz that would serve as my datumline.

Afyer the rufcut the top shape was sanded to the correct profile.

The next step was to mark the vertical centerline and to section the block at the bulkhead breaks.

The next step will be to glue the formers to either side of the foam blocks and to cut the outside shape along the bulkheads.
