How to manufacture X-32A

Download the drawing and print it on thick paper. (Refer toMaterial and Instrument.) Set up your printer for thick paper.
Cut the paper according to the thick line. Cut and assemble by numerical order. Fold up as dash and dot line " _ . _ . _" , and fold down as dash line " - - - - " . Dihedral angle of tail wings is 58 degree. No balance weight is needed.

Bend down front edge of main wings slightly as a bow shape to make camber. Bend up rear edge of main wings slightly. For fine pitch trim, bend up or down rear end of tail wings (it works as V tail.)
