Construction begins!
Enough design work, time to start building this thing. I printed a set of templates from my CAD software...



Used the templates to cutout the various parts then started putting things together...



She's starting to look like something...



Filled in the rear of the pod with scrap balsa...



A little pre-shaping of the hardwood nose blocks. Once installed I'll finish carving these until the motor fits...



I'm using 1/4" plywood for the pod support (the piece that connects the pod to the wing)...



Test fitting the support. I won't glue this in until the pod has been shaped & sanded as it'll just get in the way...



That'll do for today. I'm headed to the NEAT Fair so will get back to this when I return next week. Cya there.
