|MODERN LIGHT WEIGHT MODELLING MATERIALS|
|V. Ryan © 2007|
DEPRON FOAM and
ZEPRON FOAM: Balsa wood has been used for
many years as a model making material. However, light weight modern,
alternatives are also available. One such material is depron foam. It is a
form of polystyrene sheet. It is lightweight and does not absorb moisture
making ideal for model aircraft. It is available in two colours - grey and
white. It is also available in three thickness 2, 3 and 6mm.
Draw a sequence drawing showing all the stages of manufacturing a model glider, made from either depron or zepron. Start with drawing the shapes of the fuselage, wings etc..., cutting the shapes with a fine tooth saw of fretsaw - all the way to applying colour. Remember quality control.
