Secondary hull all sheeted!

OK. I’m glad to be at the end of the sheeting of these two hull sections. Monotonous is not the word best to describe this. In fact I thought the secondary hull shape would be easier than the saucer. It wasn’t.

So I’m filling a preening the wood as best I can and then I’ll glass it and finish it off. But first tomorrow I’m going to make the neck so I can epoxy everything at once.

More tomorrow.

P.S. BTW the rubber bands at the former locations work great to preform and cut when the balsa is ammonia water soaked. Let dry and sheeting is a breeze!
