Looks great, Al. The first one was simply amazing...hard to believe this one could be any better. Can't wait to see it in the air!

Thanks, Andy! I'm really looking forward to flying her. Hope it cools off some, it's been brutal lately if one is not in the shade.

I had a delivery from Marc a couple of weeks ago. Spent the last couple of weekends feeding a 100mm by 25mm lump of Hoop pine through the band saw and routing table, set up as a thicknesser.

So now the build begins, this will not be a quick build.

Thanks AL for making the plans available and for the build articles in RCSD.

I noticed I have 3 x S1 ribs, do I use the third or stick to the plan?

mstone,

You are welcome, hope you enjoy your build. The 3 S1 ribs on the laser sheets are my screw-up. Somehow I added in one extra one and never noticed. Only two are required.

Yesterday I glued the Stab ribs while the elevator false leading edge dried.
