The Rascal CNC is a hobby grade CNC machine designed BY the Community FOR the Community with the simple goal of being able to cut foam board airplanes, for more details: CLICK HERE
Make sure you've got all your parts and Rascal Kit ordered before you get started.
The Rascal mounts to a flat sheet of MDF or plywood. This baseboard should be 3/4"x42x42” minimum, but the thicker the better. Pick up a sheet from your local lumber store and then you'll need to seal your baseboard with one of the following:
It's critical that the baseboard is sealed to prevent it from warping over time. Lastly, frame the underside of your baseboard with 2x4s and mount it somewhere solid and permanent.
BUILD STILL IN PROGRESS

I've been working on a Corsair now for some time. The design has been changed and re designed many times as I search for the right look and build style that's strong (gotta be able to handle speed) and straight forward to build. I finally settled on a new design method that I really like.
This new method uses a main rib that a few scale formers fix to. I then use foam to wrap the formers to give a fully scale fuse. For a time reference I started this build on November 18th 2016.
