Started to build the orig intakes



A second Canopy Master was made in Aluminum:


Alu shaped to perfektion, for Vakuumforming mean 360er sandpaper is o.k. so the Vivak / PETG can glide above very good:

Started to build the Splitflaps, difficult due the low profile is not easy to get it stiff enough


The fat body blocks my complete workshop for days...

the lower board dives in the frame during forming with vacuum, the air is sucked through these holes near the canopy

lower wing surface nearly ready

just 1 try, didn`t had over material so it was success that the 1st try was ok

quick cut and try


only glued at the outer corners, the inner structure is not glued, due to optical perfection


Already protected for further steps

I started to glas all surfaces with 55gr/m2 diagonal, just the wings had only 1,2mm Balsa so they needed 2 times 55gr, 1st diagonal 2nd dihedral

QED: The maiden is planned for AMD-meeting in Havelberg next year thats in June/July, may be if I'm fast in Ahnsbeck on "Pfingsten". Will see. Presently my only project, but,... a few projects in the pipeline, there will be a Star 13 a vintage glider next and I help a friend to create an MQ9 Reaper.
Today I finalised the cowling mounting and closed the gap and Shaped and will shape the fuselage to the cowling contour.

Matze, things are looking spectacular. Yes, the glass work came out fantastic. Can't wait to see it with some color on it.
Have you decided on a pilot figure yet....?
Maybe two pilot figures which would look fantastic.
December is right around the corner so I'm sure you are hard at it if you want to meet your dead line..
Great work as usual Matze.....

Hi Doug,
presently nothing is scheduled with the cockpit, First step is a good maiden flight may be I reschedule later. For the first flight there will be no pilots inside. Yes I know if you do not do the things directly and say I can do this later than it fall off the board. Presently I startet to tape things that should not get in touch with filler. So fist step is filler, thats not really colour in this grey tone. but you can easily see any surface issue. I hope to get it back with filler before xmas to work on it between he years.
cheers matze

Engine is a 150/5 Moki but the space is good for a 250/5 Moki too. When I made the construction I blew it up until both rotation bodies suit into the cowling this leads to a scale of 1:4,4 approx and wingspan of 100 inch. As soon as the plane is airborne all constrution details including cockpit resin 3d prints etc can be downloaded on outerzone.
