WWII Time Airplane

  1. Mar 26, 2008 #1
    I'm planning to build myself a WWII time Airplane. i need some insght into the types of materials that can be used for it.
    Specifically, i'm facing problem in finding a suitable covering material for the wings. i would require a light cloth or a plastic sheet, probably. I've used wood to make the spars. I'm using steel and aluminium pipes to construct the frame.
    Also, i need to know the rough value of rpm of the propeller that i should have.
    please help me out with this.
    Suggestions welcomed. Thank u in anticipation.

    The Mosquito was a wood and fabric airplane. That's an exception though. Most were metal or mixtures of.
