Default Project visit from Remulak



Beldar: What do you think of the Earthlings project, Prymaat?

Prymatt: Lot of trouble just to levitate through the gas surrounding this planet, Beldar.

Default Aileron Spar Reinforcements

Well, I was going to wait until I had nice shiny top skins to post in this thread again, but I decided this will do.

I swear, I held up these provided plates against the aileron trim spars, and they would only fit one way. Well, after I drilled, I pulled them off and noticed my edge distance on a few of the holes.

(Holding it back up rotated 90°, it would have worked out perfectly. Doh!)



Now, where's that "Trim Bundle" I saw laying around here somewhere...

Default I've got a wing! No dings on the top skins!

I know it's only the right wing, but it feels really good to have this done.



Next, ailerons, flaps, then catch the left wing up.

Default Rolled the Canoe Today

Today I "rolled the canoe" over. I'm happy with the way she is looking. 20 months into this project and anxious to fly.
