Default RE: TF GS P47 Build - yeah another bloody one!!

Well a bit of progress last couple of days - helps top have rainy weather and 2 days off work!!

So as you can see from the series most of the stab and elevators are complete. Just top skin to glue on which will be done later tonight then the strips glued to Stab TE and ELEV LE, tip blocks on and shaped plus hinging.

One change I have to do is add the slight sweepback on the ELEV LE. IF you look at 3 views you will notice this.

TIP: When I was doing the jig cradles prior to flipping the assebly over I ponder how to secure it to my board ( Large interior door), pins were no good and as for using 3M glue - seems messy. anyway I used small cabinet nails through the ply jig cradle base. Secured them down very tight so should have no probs with warps etc.

oh yeah you eill probably notice that I forgot to install the hinge mount blocks in the elevators prior to sheeting - derr [>:][:@] easy fix!
Hoping to make a start on the fuz tomorrow.
