    few pics of the tail plane , the black is carbon laid between the balsa to aid to a very rigid trailing edge.

    RE: supra fly 2500 build thread.

    Steve,

    that looks like some light foam! I hadn't realized how thin the SF 2500 airfoils are. Nice.

    You'll probably have a few foam components together soon. Are you using 1.5 mm or 2 mm balsa for sheeting? Oops, you're in the UK - I assume Europe is all metric - must be 1/16"?

    David.

    RE: supra fly 2500 build thread.

    Steve,

    I do not have any color picture of Supra Fly 2500 underside. But a good guess is it is green with possibly two or tri-color rectangles for better visibility what is top and underside of wing when flying. I know he had this on his Curare and other planes. I have tried to find the German magazine FMT 4/89 on ebay Germany but so far no luck. Maybe it could be some more color picture in that magazine but I doubt.

    RE: supra fly 2500 build thread.

    Steve,

    excellent stuff. It looks like you'll have her framed up in another few days!

    Can you show some pictures of the fuse interior? How many formers?

    The smaller SF25 has about 8 of them - all 1/8" ply - way too heavy! They need to be replaced for lite ply and 3/16" balsa. Sides are also 1/8" plus 1/8" solid ply doubler...

    I think I'm going to town on the Mystic 30 fuse this afternoon - see how many oz I can shed.

    David.

    RE: supra fly 2500 build thread.

    Steve,

    thanks for the photos of the fuse inner. You say four formers are used - I see three in the wing saddle area plus the FW. Are there no formers from the wing TE to the tail? Is it stiff enough that one wasn't needed at the stab LE? What's the size of the fuse sides you're using?

    Keep them coming.

    David.
