LJMP Meteor

Just finished the LJMP Meteor from the 80s. The build is a scratch build as I have only found one kit and he would not part with it.

Link to my build photo build (build log).

Wingspan (20oz each) is 127, root cord is 8 5/8 and the tip cord is 6 1/2

Fuselage (48oz) is 53

Stabilizer (3.2oz) is 30, root cord is 5 1/2" and the tip cord is 3 1/2"

Fin is 12 tall

Flying weigh will be 91 oz. This is quite a bit heaver than I wanted. This is probably due to my inexperience with fiberglass and I am sure I got too much resin on the fin and aft boom. Some carbon was used, the spars are capped top and bottom with .014 carbon and wrapped with carbon tow, the wing trailing edge is built up with .007 carbon, the stabilizer has .007 carbon in leading and trailing edge, the rudder has .007 carbon on the trailing edge.
