Out of the barn and reassemble

Big very hot Sunday this weekend. All the wings were in the old barn on trestles having been coated with polyurethane and all the fittings marked and stored up.

Got the body out in the sunshine and started the steady re-assembly job with my son Sam.

Minor panic when I had propped the starboard wing slightly and the rigging didn’t connect … slight adjustment to supports and all ok.

The wing pins which have been very tight are starting to ease a little now I have greased them as well and they are getting used to coming in and out.
