Guys,
Progress on the Trojan front.
Finally got the Dive Brake done (Whew)
Started laying down rivets (have to order at least 4 more sheets) and will drill holes in the wing tips for the Nav lites today...
Plug is done and ready for my friend to vacuum form windscreen (Boyd, he's making you 2)
Now angsting over whether I should do the wing fairing or not... ordered some .010 G10 for it so....

Boyd,
Looks like I have to either do the wing fairing or use some micro balloons to fix the gap between the wing and fuse

Okay guys,
Latest update.
Here is a pix of the first vacuum formed windscreen, will get to see it Tuesday when I see my friend.
Here is something interesting I just figured out, I was trying to wrap the wing with wax paper to make the wing fillets and the paper kept wrinkling.
So I decided to try some thing else, I put down a strip of 3M Platinum painters tape and mixed up some micro balloons, applied it to the tape and let it setup really hard, it released from the tape as nicely as could be, can't wait to see how it REALLY does. On the pix of the plane you will see a piece of G10 that I am using to keep the thin edge of the micro balloons from chipping.

Temp in garage hovers around 84 in the AM and steadily climbs to 95 by 3 PM.
Got the rivets from Chad but am now fixing the Avenger wing so Trojan is sitting on the side lines
