I acquired this from Todd a little over a year ago. Mike was original owner and the work he completed is top notch. It was about 2/3 framed up . So the reality is it's about 1/4 done. Depending on the detailing maybe even less.

So I'm going to give it a go but I have to admit in recent years I'm having trouble getting these big projects done.

Wingspan : Top wing: 120 inches, Bottom wing: 107 inches (True scale airfoil)
Fuse length : 91
Wing area: 3 966 Sq. inches
Wing loading: 26 ounces / square foot.
Cubic wing loading: 5.09. Values between 4 and 6 are sailplane/glider values.
Cowl diameter: 13"
Plug-in wing and stab panels

This is what I hope to create

Well the first thing I need to do is construct a gig to fasten the wings to. These wings have been kicking around in an unfinished state for many years and there are a couple of warps to be pulled out.

The first one of four is mounted on the gig. You can't see it but I had to shim the wing up in a spot when I clamped it down to pull a warp out. This all guess as to how much to shim. The plan is to sheet and finish the wing and hope that it will come out straight.   And it did Cheesy

The wing tips are one tricky bugger. The angle and the height doesn't seem to agree with each other. Going to be a guess here. It's almost like the tips needs to be bent to achieve the shape of the full size. I went  on the center line of the wing cord so if needed I can add wood later on and reshape. I have a feeling these tips are going to be difficult to get correct. Once all four wings are built I'll decide  what to do as a group.

Al you always have such interesting projects!  Love reading about the progress. 

I saw some exercise weights in one of the photos.  New year's resolution in the making?  Smiley
