Now THIS is what I am talkin about.. this is why a I enjoy building so much... you take a bunch of wood scraps and make something AWESOME out of it... ok, not scraps, but you get what I'm sayin

First up was taking a sanding block and running across the leading edge ribs to true them all up with each other. Then a 3/16" false leading edge was installed. Then it was time for sheeting this center section...

So some 1/8"x6"x48" sheet balsa was ripped down to 8- 6" square pieces, then these were installed along the tip rib edges just like the smaller version. from about 3/4 way back on the engine nacelle, the sheeting was done in a long strip.




Then the spine and top center of the engine nacelle's were sheeted:



Then the rest of the bat-tail was sheeted. I've got to make the cutouts and install the exhaust duct portion's now and it also has been left oversize.



Then the right wing had its 1/4" leading edge installed and rough shaped and its wingtip installed and rough shaped. The wings were then put on to make sure they matched up with the center section once sheeted.




Then I got the right rear nacelle section strip planked:

Got a bit done while the little man was taking his nap...

Got both rear nacelle's strip planked and filler applied:


Then got the inlet ducts cut, installed and sanded to the same taper as the LE. now I can start strip planking the front portions.

Thomas

Such a unique and masterful piece of work here. You sure about those ChangeSun 90mm fans? We've done some big twin edf projects and this one is begging for a Twin Tam Jets TJ100 fan. There isn't a weight penalty. You get 17+ pounds per fan on 12s and much much much better performance and customer support with the Tam setup

Just saying...

I have to stop looking at this build so I can get something done on mine.

Pandi,
If i had the cash for a pair of tam fans i would. The changesuns are ok performance wise on 6s, and since the expected finish weight of this thing is only 15-17lbs max, 17lbs of trust per tam fan is a bit overkill. With the dual 6s changesun fans, we should be About 170-200 watts per pound. This will be my first big edf project and first 90mm edf setup, so i am definitely looking for advice and doing lots of research.

Thats the plus side, no turbines necessary, this thing should fly on anything from 90mm to 120mm edf or P20 turbine size

Well, I look forward to that knee knocking moment...lol At my altitude, the P20's would be best.

The p20's would be awesome at any altitude, but $4500 more expensive

Last bit done for the evening...

Strip planked the left side of the cockpit and forward engine nacelle's, and put a butter coat of wood filler on it:



Then started on the right side:



Then finished the right side the same as the left:



A shot from the front:


Then installed the exhaust fairings:



Then put it all back together...

Hello Thomas,

AWESOME work as usuall ! ! ! I know this is a dumb question and a bit premature, but I was wondering. How in the world are you going to launch that beast? I'd love to see a video of it taking off and flying.

Keep up the masterful work and don't let your Gee Bee get too lonely............LOL

Didn't do much today, kinda took a breather for a bit...

But I did do the first round of sanding of filler on the top of the fuse, then put the 2nd round of filler on. Also did the prelim trimming of the inlets, still more work to do to those.


Then enlarged the wing tube holes in the junction rib so the wing tube sockets would fit through, then flopped the whole thing over, aligned the wing panels and epoxied the wing tube sockets in place. all to do now, is to let it cure overnight, cut the outer wing panels free, trim the trailing edges and then start sheeting/planking the bottom. I figure i'll be pretty close to done building wise by the end of tomorrow, so when I return, I can finish the last bit of shaping/sanding and then start glassing everything.
