Wings joined and held at the correct dihedral angle while the glue dries.
Wing fairing clampped in place and other views of the nearly completed fuselage.
6. All moving tailplane
AMT internals added, bushed with 3mm spruce thats been soaked in thin cyano. Top fuselage sheeting added and the whole tail end blended together.
5. All moving tailplane
Tailplane ribs were made using the sandwich method and glued to one of the sheeting pieces, the mechinics are then assembled with a good helping of gorilla glue to spred the load and hold in place.
With the glue still 'foaming' the other half of the tailplane sheeting was added, so the glue would stick to both top and bottom.
Bottom sheeting in place. Middle pic shows the nose block and the final pic shows the nose block in place ready for shaping. The model has an all moving tail, so the top decking has been left of until the tail is fitted and the horn mechanism is fitted.
Fuselage sides joined and clamped. Jig was needed to hold the sides while nose former F1 glued in place.
Wing panels, not on the original plan, but I've added shear webs to the inboard ribs.
Wing panel transfered to CAD and wing ribs printed out. Wing being built over plan. The rib tabs are generated from the CAD program.
