Work completed this weekend was mounting the engine mounts, building the wing saddle, starting the cowl and starting the lower forward fuselage.
The formers that I talked about earlier split again so I put the reinforcements pictured below in.
I tried to use thin CA to fiberglass one of the the cowl joints but that was a big mess. I'll do the other one with epoxy.
The last major purchase for this airplane was completed in the form of an OS .75 AX engine. This thing is really tight and I can barely turn it over with my hands.
