The whole idea behind the design was to have an aircraft that could stow away for winter or be trailerable. It took a full week to make all the fittings and make it work.

Sitting on me arse?

Not bluddy likely! Some smart ass said I'm not blogging this summer. To which I replied" Some do while others just blog about it."
Flight controls ready for finish coats and vertical stab fabriced.

Mindless Labour

It was time to strip the metal parts . A mindless boring job only a half wit could take pleasure in. Unfortunately none of my friends would help.They would have been giggling with pleasure.

I had been dreading fitting the wings on the fuselage for weeks. I would rather have had to dress a bipolar gorilla in a tuxedo.Getting the wing out of the basement like was stuffing the tuxedo clad gorilla into a smart car without ruining the press.

Surprisingly the wing support pins went on slick . Minor tapping with a calibrated hammer . landing wires tomorrow.

What did you think? Wood is held up there by magnetic force? Epoxy glue and many clamps.

Wood Airplane?

Yes, surprising I actually had to do some good ol' fashioned wood butchering. New fabric formers for the port side.


No, that's not snow all over the driveway.That's baking soda from my soda blaster. About 10 kg of powder in ever crack and orifice.....of my body.To say nothing of the garage, stone driveway, dog.You get the idea.

Do it Yourself Brain surgery

I successfully gave myself a frontal lobotomy after reading the fascinating book "Do it Yourself Brain surgery"...... but I'll defy anyone to teach themselves how to ribstitch. Took me hours of fustration, 50 feet of waxed cord and I buggered my near vision for the rest of the day.Pretty sure I could sew up a cadaver in about 1/2 hour now.

Just a piece-no fabric yet. Control wires going to and instrument panel installation.
