Will have to Floor the Cut Out to improve the Torsional Ridgidity .

Despite the 1/2 x 1/8 spruce runners at the sills , the area lozenges when you twist the Aft Fuse .

Rear under is 3.0 hard @ 45 Deg. along edges , with sheet sanded to 2.7 underside .
Tapered the first inch , it mates into the lower wing spar to integrate the Thingo's .
Id put a offcut of 1/2 over the joint with a 1/2 Sq. Oak a metre long pulled & taped to the wing out there ,
so that the joint was Clamped Overnight ( using P.V.A. Glue ) . Wing resting on empty water bottles & Weighted at Root to Neutralise the pull,
rather than risk it shifting / missaligning .

BIT LATE IN THE DAY for Design Changes , the Nose Flanks needed to be at more of an angle in , going down .
Veed the formers at the sides , an inch down at the L.E. 1/16 in.,
3 / 32 Behind engine to thrustline , & 1 /16 down to the nose ring . :P :o

Been IRRITATED by this for most of the week , Flash Pictures a day ago of front made it compulsary , to get the cowl to Fair In properly .

Worked Out Nicely , was a bit stressfull till  a fait acompli .

Underside of rear lower deck , Masking on centersection to avoid gouging up sheeting whilst refining contours .

Fitting hard leading edges to Tailplane . That and fuse sides were cut pre 08 or 05 even ! The latter I think . :o

Thus.

Requires at least three or more deep breaths between tests to clear the lungs . These turkeys that gut drag ciggarettes must be feral .

The Plane ( G-AEXF ) ran THREE differant Cowl fronts , the one Im using was on its Cape Town Record run . The ' 0 ' shaped one .

Matt,

You have enough aspect ratio there you could sell some and still be fine.

Kidding! I'm kidding.

You did a great job!  H^^

Very Good .
Was tempted to leave the outer @ 36 in. and add a notch to the inner tip for about 74 span & 10 : 1 A. R. , :-\
figured the spars'd hack it , but designed at 64 for the ST .46 or 68 for the 40 FSR , its 68 1/2 , but we cant be picky .
Couldnt see the point in having it to long just for the hell of it , but I did think about it .  :P S?P

Heres the Undercarrage I DIDNT Use .

A Bit of Blacksmithing . 16 G. Galv. of some building material  maybe .

a bit of dressing got them down to 11 G. From 14 . The U/C ' flex ' for shock absorbings better than previous set up . ???
Probably as the heat freed the entrapment on the torsion bar , maybe . Should just hack our moto-x tracks , as well as the tarmac .
What Tarmac  :P :( .

Hard Solder , Plenty Strong . and should break away if theres an earthquake , leaving the airframe intact. Thats my Theory . Hopefully wont test it .

Chop a hole in the base , feed in the plug , force in a stick under it , a rotate untill grilled .

the neck seems thicker , so windshield end front , tickuly for fighter windshields .

Watch you dont hole or scorch it . Blue came out almost usable first go .

 >:( thought I might have to try 3 piece , as per F.S. , the fits a bit loose on upper leg , so will try moulding & fitting a ' front ' fairing ,
and afix rear sides to that . Its got to have some give, mainly fore & aft . As I didnt want the legs to rip out on our motocross tracks .
( almost no hard circles here ) .

Shoulve really made my own 1/8 horns , as dinaye want other than ridgid control system , As id like to seee how it handle ' sailing weather '.
reinforced the 3/32 suckers with the offcuts  , aft & inner . Hard Solder ( 60 /40 ) . to shorten torsion length . The Green Sucker Id bent 3/32
arms with loop & brass tube for pushrods , Giving em a good twist , the 3 in or so in the front of the flap came free in the aryldite , giving
back off ' as per Beringer . as they were little ' Beringer ' flaps was of no account , thats hoe He set them up .
Incedently was Drg. in old Aeromodellor with flap configurations ( Experimental in 50s ) with short small one on center T.E., As per Mr B ,
almostish .These are longer . :## Full span nearly so would appreciate if they were not wobbly .

Put wet & dry paper Fwd. of arm & tended to keep vertical - wing down . Also had moist paper towel & cooled it half'n' half , or better .
TIME with iron on it seemed to be the relevant factor , to incinerating the airframe . Always have a bucket of water on standby .
Unless your electric .  %^@
