The manual instructs you to cut the back out?

No scheme yet, but possibly yellow, blue and white

There's a manual? lol!
I started wing first, didnt need any destructions, I thought we were being clever with the tail plane, so I will stop speed reading and study the destructions properly from here on. I'm a bit behind you with the fus..

I am thinking winter hack and half a dozen of em in the sky..... fluorescent orange or green!!!!

A really neat job mate and very enjoyable to build I should imagine, it's great being shut in our workshops surrounded by balsa and glues, it's a shame not more of this sort of thing on here Crying or Very sad
Looking forward to your covering pics and tips as not as easy as it looks and I am not that great at it so please share Bravo Bravo Bravo

Next, it's on to assembling the foam wing.
Start by fitting leading edge strips to each wing panel...

....the trailing edge facings are fitted in the same way. Once both wings have their leading and trailing edge facings fitted, do something constructive while the glue dries.....

By the time the brew is made and consumed, and you've stood back and glared at your workmanship, the glue should have taken a hold enough to allow the wing roots to be sanded lightly, to achieve the correct dihedral and a square mating surface. The two wing panels can then by glued together using epoxy....



.....leave to cure overnight, while getting a decent nights sleep!!
Goodnight for now.
More tomorrow......

Looking great mate and going together pretty swiftly, what glue do you use for bonding the leading & trailing edges to that foam Question

Happy days Gary, happy days!!

Ian will have used the pva wood glue for the leading/trailing edges, far quicker than epoxy and sands back easier..

Next job is to shape the leading and trailing edge facing strips. Firstly, I use a "David" razor plane to get close to the correct shape with the least amount of effort.....



......then with a sanding block. Care must be taken to avoid cutting/sanding into the thin wing veneer.....

Always best to wear a face mask when doing a fair amount of sanding......



.....not due to the dust. I just find the effort involved makes me fart a lot!!

Other than fuel proofing the firewall and tank compartment, and soldering together the wire undercarriage, there's been no real progress...sorry

Have done a little bit more this weekend. Just applied the wing joining bandage....

Mask the centre section to stop the resin going anywhere other than where it should


.....then apply a small amount of resin



.....evenly spread the resin and then apply the cloth bandage...

The resin started to cure quicker than I had hoped it would. This meant that the underside didn't get the finish I had hoped for. As this won't be seen, I left as is. The topside got a second thin coat to ensure the cloth was fully wetted and to a smooth finish.....
