It seemed like a good idea at the time to put epoxy on the interior floor. Turned out to be very heavy, with no way to sand out....
Removed the aft section of the hull and replaced with 1/32 birch, with epoxy on the outside surface only.
I did alot of research on PBY airfoils. It seems that the Davis airfoil became the choice going forward on some of the late production models. To me it looks more scale, as the real airfoil is either symetrical, or semi-symetrical. Either way, it was good
The wing mount uses 4 nylon screws to hold the wing in place. Seems to be very strong.
