With so many bits going on all around the aircraft at the moment its proving tricky to place her in the best position so that I can work on it easily
- Cabane is being worked on off the body – so much easier – final ply plates needed to make up landing planes
- Ailerons still going in – both lower sets in, wind webbed and hinged – still need to cut out ingress to cater for pushrod free play
- Top wings being webbed for aileron (1 to go !) and then hinged up
- 4th and last aileron top ply glued and awaiting aerolite to curve and fit
- Cowls being marked up
Moved the ‘plane at an angle in the barn so that wings still pretty much line up but I can get to engine and nose. Marked up the centre line of the top deck – need to check exactly how this fits to top longerons.
Paul has provided ‘sense check’ instructions for cowl alignment and fitting – so good re-read on ski holiday next week
