John, spoke yesterday at field , thought I would look this up. That's real building! I thought the pinnacle of building was being able to stick the elevator onto an acrowot artf. Good luck and I shall follow progress with interest.

When you sheet large areas like that do you edge join the boards together first then sand them both sides so that you have a big veneer to work with John?? When I first started building I used to do them individually with disastrous results 😊

Yes Dave i joint all the edges for good fit then tape them down the long edge, they can then be opened like a hinge to apply the glue, as you said sanding them is much easier flat on the bench ,the only draw back is sticking the whole sheet on the ribs can't see if you got them all ,what i do is fill lots of sandwich bags with fine sand and weigh the panel down over night works well .Bravo

Well just a update not moved on to much, but pleased with the progress so far.
wing is all most finished not a very nice job cutting the flaps ,and ailerons form the wing after building it ,then lining them out to refit .








done a refurb on the retracks will fit them next
