It’s that time of the week again where we check back in with Stefan Hoffman to get an update on what’s happening with the A330X project!
In a post to the Aerosoft forums he wrote”Time for a small update: Tail details besides wear and tear have been finalized now for the A333. Note that the rudder construction is not perfectly symmetrical by basic design, as there is a different maint access opening on the left of the rudder hinge. On checking many images i also could witness how different the A330-200s vertical tail construction is. Like on the A318 it was heightened and deepened to encounter the different aerodynamical situation that comes with the shortened total length of the aircraft.Work now moves to the last large exterior: The wings. The slats are rather detailed by rivets and inward structures, but that will be displayed.
Work now moves to the last large exterior: The wings. The slats are rather detailed by rivets and inward structures, but that will be displayed. Of course such a huge thing is not completed within 5 work days (also there has to be done research for every meter to put the panels, weld lines and rivets on the right places), but i will keep you all informed on how things go. For now enjoy this weeks images; even the rivet works should be rather near the real thing on the APU and vertical tail section.”
Enjoy the beautiful previews below, stay tuned to the our Facebook page for more updates!
