..... The outboard and inboard canard cores are cut from skewed, parallelogram style blocks, with the exception of the canard center section. The reason for this is to obtain the proper sweep of the canard when the cores are jigged together later.
.....Begin by squaring up the 10" x 20" X 96" nominal dimension block of polystyrene foam to obtain a length of 51.2", with the skew as indicated. Next, using the sketch provided, hot-wire the outboard canard foam cores. Note that the bottom set of templates are upside down, so as to obtain the proper geometry upon jigging.
..... Next, find the extra pieces from the 10" x 24" blocks (2) and face them up to the dimensions shown. These two blocks are used for the inboard elevator cores and inboard canard cores. The portions not used will be used later for the outboard elevator cores.
.....Don't forget the cutouts for the elevato0 torque tubes. After the elevator cores have been hot-wired, cut along one of the lines (e.g.4-A-B) and hot wire down that slot and around the inside (e.g. 4-A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H-I-B-A-4) and out again. Then cut along the other line (e.g. 4-F) and hot-wire along that slot to complete the cut.
