Arsenal VG33: computer modelling

After a very long break, I resume my preparatory activities for the construction of the Arsenal VG 33 (plan D. Boulanger). First of all, I model the whole construction on sketchup, in order to identify the different construction phases and also to adapt the plan to the landing gear I will use. It will be an electron retract ER30eVo.

So I reproduced the different structural elements on Sketchup.

The structural elements are transferred to create the files for digital cutting.

For the fuselage, I started with a non-detailed general simulation to get the overall shape.

I would like to motorise it electrically with a sound system. Daniel’s plan was for a thermal motorisation so I’m going to modify the front. I am therefore starting to think about the assembly of the different fuselage elements and modelling the frames and other reinforcements that will be necessary.


Scientific and passionate about aviation and aeromodelling for 45 years, I am here to share with you my models, my techniques, my achievements and what I have learned over the years.
