Default Carl Goldberg SkyLark 56

I made a bet with a friend I could build and modify this old Carl Goldberg 56 in two months while on working on the plane for 3 hours one night a week. I will have to modify the bet to allow me to work on the plane one additional hour during the week. This is because the the night I reserved to work on this project happens to be the same night I have other members of our club at my house to work on their projects. As such, I spend a lot of time helping them instead of working on my project.

One thing we did not discuss on this bet was the definition of build. Because in today's ARF era it means ready to fly. However, to me from the kit style era it means ready to cover. I have to make the following modifications to the plane: battery hatch and tray, dual aileron servos, bolt on wing, and electric power. I will be using wood glue throughout the build except for the wing hold down plates where I will be using 30 minute epoxy.

So, come along with my journey to see if I can do this project. My main goal is to have it ready to fly by Feb.

Here are tonight's pictures.

Picture #1 is the box cover and the yellow fragile plans.

Picture #2 is triangle stock glues that runs along the top of the fuse. What is not seen was an extra step required by an amendment for a notch to be cut into the fuse sides.

Picture #3 are the formers with their doublers glue to them.

Picture #4 is one of the fuse doubler being glued on
