Has anyone ever tried to build a plane with aluminum sheets?
Once on an issue of Model Airplane News I saw a picture of a Japanese WWII fighter all made by aluminium. The builder was the owner of SAITO Engines, according to the picture description. The article did not say whether the plane was able to fly or not.
Maybe a possible combination could be aluminium sheets, balsa and plywood with epoxy as glue.
The advantage? No covering film required.

Let me have your commnets.
