Scallop Leading Edge – start

When I visited the factory last month I met a fantastic builder called Alistair (I think that was his real name as everyone kept calling him moggy or something like that !) … He is building a Sherwood and has such fantastic detail to follow.

I noticed his wings, which were hanging up above the body had scalloped all the leading edge sheets between the ribs. This gives the material a better lie when covering rather than having an abrupt square/flat edge.

So, like Moggy, made a metal template and set to work on the lower starboard to see what it would look like.

Nice effect … be tricky to get the tops done without taking the wings back off …
