Hi Guys:

Well spent the day with sanding bars and paper in hand. The 80 grit is done, thank goodness !

Re-assmbled wing to fuselage set the left equals right relative to the tailpost, taped securely and drilled for wing bolts. Set the blind nuts and remounted everything and weighed. The wing sheeting, glue and all my extra reinforcements brought me to 7.2 lbs, I can live with the added weight because my CG as it sits now is dead on. As I install equipment I will place it to maintain that condition.

I am attaching a couple of pictures to compare the Big 'Poke to my Slowpoke Sport 40. Bare bones doesn't draw the difference as dramatically as it will when I put those yards of 21st Century fabric on. Going with a red and yellow color scheme, mainly because I have several 5 meter rolls and at $60.00 a roll I can't afford to waste it.

Tom
