Laser 200 Rebuild
As my winter project I decided to overhaul an old 1/3 Laser 200. The airplane was built around 12 or 15 years ago and after the owner crashed on takeoff it wound up in my attic for the last 10 years or so. I was going to just make repairs on the fuse and cowling, and recover the whole thing, but as I started weighing the fuse I just couldn't bring myself to leave all that extra lumber in the airplane, so here we go with a brand new scratch built fuse using just a couple of old parts from the original fuse. The fuselage without cowling landing gear canopy and tail feather group weighed in at a hefty 4 lbs. 3 ozs. So hear are a couple of pictures, the forward fuse sides alone that out weigh the entire 60" new fuse.
