The past week a lot of little things got done. There was a lot final tightening of most things within the fuselage and
adding witness marks.
The last few days was spent sanding and fabricating. The false bottom ribs were
cut out to fit on the bottoms of the tanks and then hysoled on. Then there
was a lot of sanding. Using a level all of the false ribs were sanded slightly to
make the profiles perfect to make the fabric sit as nicely as possible.
J-Stringers cut, fit and secured today. These were originally already completed
when I bought the kit, but they were removed for sandblasting and were
damaged enough to just get some new material. Was pretty cheap to do all
It’s been a busy two weeks. Lots of things have happened. I had a few setbacks to overcome and a few more to deal with.
But it’s been forward progress and getting closer to that pre-cover inspection.
Well, more progress is always great. I’m aiming to get my pre-cover inspection by MD-RA here in Canada in the next
2-3 weeks. I think that would be a big step.
Well been busy since my last post. Some of that busy time actually working on the plane.
Making sure the wings fit correctly and that all dimensions are correct.
Today was more progress. Took apart the pedal assembly and found it needs to be greased. Put them back in, got all the connections done and control sticks in. They’ll be coming out again for re-paint eventually.
Been a little while - I’m sure you all know how it goes (or doesn’t) sometimes.
So, a few small updates. Sorry, no pics.
