    Checking for updates

    I’m setting up the right wing panel for gluing to the front spar. Pictures won’t be much different from what is already posted. But I will do some new ones. I know pictures are more fun than words.

    On another note, I should be picking up my rims/hubs I had re-laced with some period correct steel rims for that Schwinn Traveler you gave me. Got to get that gem rolling again. πŸ™‚

    I was thinking, the fat tires on snow bikes would be awesome and disk brakes from Mountain bike. Bens Bush Eagle Xl

    I applaud you for building your own airplane. Β You got balls. Β Anything my fat ass gets in would require a turbine to lift off. Β Keep up the good work.

    That’s a good idea Kevin. Wonder how much a rim/tube/tire weight? Wheels I have now are about 3 1/2lbs each.

    Franx or Craig might know that better. I would think they would be lighter .

    I’m going to look into it. Would probably need a beefier hub for stronger axle. Then I’d need to modify the landing gear leg length, otherwise it would be way to tall with 26″ rims.

    OK Kevin. Here are a couple pick of the right wing. These are the root end attach points to the fuselage. Installed the strap brackets and the rib stick doublers where I had to cut away part of the rib uprights.

    JJ should build a plane with a 1/2 VW motor in it. I mean it only makes sense.

    Scott Kessler took over Hummel engines. His shop is about an hour from me in Florence, AZ. That price is right at new.

    Maybe with a propeller. Here’s his page link. https://www.hummelengines.com/price-listΒ  His most expensive two cylinder is about $5000.00.

    Second wing panel is almost done, just have glue on the railing edge, and it will be caught up with the other wing. I will hang it up and start on the fuselage. Going pretty quickly considering I only spend a half day Saturday and a couple hours during the week on it. Second wing went quick because I didn’t have to figure everything out as I went. Built it in half the time.

    This coming weekend is the Chirco’s show and DHP’s Saturday night cruise-in. Throw in some city camping, I might make some headway on it. πŸ™‚

    Pretty cool video of a composite formula 1 pylon racer being made. The bondo sequence will make JJ tired for sure. Get a cup of coffee and take a 45 minute break. πŸ™‚

    Thats cool. His bondo spreading was driving me nuts. I wanted to grab the spreader and pallet out of his hands!

    That’s funny. Maybe he got better as he went.

     

    Laid up up the bottom fuselage rails and the two wide stations. Heated and bent together and up for the tail post. Just tacked now. Finish welding will be acetylene.
