The wing took just enough time for the glue could dry, so back to the fuse.

The hatch is the next part of the build.

The hatch bottom has slots for the tabs that hold the hatch down. I aligned one on the inside and one on the outside and used the tab as a drill guide. I cut some 3/8 thick plywood parts to use as a spacer between the fuse side and the tab. The pictures do a good job at explaining.

Speaking of wings, while the glue dries again I'll work in the wings and stab.

Here you see I glued the root cap, and cut the holes for the servo boxes.

All you really need is a flat table to work off of because all of the tabbed parts square its self up.

Here is a photo of the motor box laid down on the top part of the frame.
Jerry that is one fancy paint holder you have there Radiowave really puts out some nice stuff.

Our foam cutter is 4 axis and believe it or not I use an old variac for power on the wire. Actually foam wing are pretty easy. The first set I ever did all I could think of was that I was going to screw them up. Sheeting was easy. It was cutting the ailerons out that made me nervous. I just measured twice and cut them on a band saw. thye actually came out pretty decent.

Just a note on the wing tubes and tail tubes

the kit is already cut for the sockets so what you will end up doing is glueing in the root, socket and false rib like you traditionally would. Jerry actually came to the shop when we cut his kit out and took the wings home before we cut in the tubes which for him is not a big deal since he already has most of the stuff required to do that.

The revisions on this kit are really good.

The fuse goes right together, and sheeting the wings and stabs are pretty simple.... just have to do it once and you'll see.

I checked it all out yesterday at Jerry's place... might be a wing done too...
