The wood parts are completely lasered, but the real build need to be shift a few month, due the moulding and fibre worx all need to be finished before and some wood for covering need to be purchsed...







Parts fit good together:

Hi Marc,
yes thank you, was hard to learn ;-)
will post some progress from time to time.
Next steps will be lots of GFK and mould work, so not that interesting. And little work on the gear, think by end of the week the bushing is ready and I add it to the the Jig so I can go hard soldering.
I just dig out som wooden parts and sorted the ribs for the rudder, will see what to do while waiting for the 2nd walk to the paint shop for filler on GFK master mould Parts.

steped bolt was ready so the fork could be beded into the splitline

Rudder main construction easy to build in your hands with the help of 2 stringers:






Next spars glued together...



...and the blocks for Rudder upr and lwr side.



The gear jig neede rework, the bushing cam last and was0,5mm off the V-tubes and the massive part will have to heat up so the wood needs to clear off a bit... spoken to the Solder guy today.
