Default Tigercat wing center section

Looking great. I havenít started mine yet. Iíve noticed that my Nacelles have a gap weíre they mount or glue to the wing center section at the trailing edge. Did yours have that issue?

There were small gaps in mine that wouldn't have affected anything flight wise but looked ugly. That is one reason I wanted a mechanical bond. The screws allowed me to pull the pods in tight and eliminate most if not all of the gaps and ensure that the epoxy bond was good and tight. I didn't show it in the pictures but there are backing plates on all of the lightning hole inserts I used to mount the blind nuts. If you are interested in using that method, I would be happy to share some of those special parts or any of the parts I created. Hate to spend all that time designing them just to be used once.

Default Tigercat parts

Thank you very much. I would be interested in the parts for bolting the Nacelles on. My email is fosterp51@yahoo.com. Just let me know how much you want for the parts.

Not interested in making money on it. I'll just send the patterns I used and laser cut the parts in the morning. Just pay for shipping and i'll be happy. I'll try to add some instructions and additional pictures to explain how I did it in detail.
