Making your own "G-10"
& Trailing Edge Material!
Have you ever wondered
how some scale modelers have such razor sharp trailing
edges on their flying surfaces? Have you heard of
something called "G-10" being used for aircraft flap
material or trailing edge stiffener?
has put together a brief video of how you can easily
make your own G-10 material, inexpensively and designed
around your personal needs. It also briefly provides the
science behind lamination lay-ups for those of you who
want to drill a little deeper into the topic.
The technique shown in
the video uses four (4) layers of 9oz glass to insure a flat
surface. These techniques can be use with other shapes
to produce your desired results. Also different fiberglass weight/weave used will also allow you to
further customize the applied application.
