Just thought i'd put in a progress report to the group. I figured i'd be hitting a major slowdown with the arrival of my first son Cole. Turns out i've been able to put in mornings at the hangar. With the weather warm now progress has been good.
Today i drilled the last hole for rigging brackets in the spars. This plane is not from plans so figuring out what i needed, building mockups, producing the finished brackets and drilling the spars ended up taking 2 years to get right. Should be able to roll the plane out into the sun if/when it quits raining.
During that couple of years a lot of parts and pieces have been made and set aside. I'm starting to find that many of the parts going forward are ready. Next i'll finish my ailerons and finish running all control linkages. Seat rails need to be finished. I made some changes up front so i have some forward sheetmetal work to do.
What are you guys working on this weekend?
