A day off flying…

Took the day off for some R&R. Flew my B-17 and the BAE Hawk jet. Great day. Great flights. Back to it tomorrow.

A pain in the neck…

I had to start the neck pylon over yesterday it just wasn’t going to work well the way I was going about it with formers and sheeting.

So I extrapolated the root cord of the top and bottom of the neck from my plans, made a solid piece of balsa cut to the neck shape and using plywood templates and a sanding bar contoured shaped it.

BTW it was a right and left half setup of course.

Tomorrow it’s time to final sand and glass these masters. The neck won’t be attached until it’s been glassed and scribed. Easier to work on that way.

More tomorrow,

Steve
