Balsa

I'm getting ready to sheath the Herck's wings with a very this layer of balsa giving a smooth surface.

The great thing about this Herck kit is that it will allow the builder to choose different types of covering techniques like balsa.

Long live balsa!

Almost done coating the Herck's wings with balsa sheeting . . . We should have done this to the entire fuse.

LOL CWRR . . I discovered balsa 30 years ago Sir. . . .The first 10 planes I scratch build from 83 to 97 where all balsa.

Go look at my two Skyvans they are both about 90% balsa.

Operation "Wing-Mount"

Well the time has come to design & add the Herck's carbon fiber wing mount assembly. Using the great Kelly Johnson's approach to design is the key here.

Making the wing mounts. .

I'm now cutting in the central wing space joiner rod for the right & left wings to slide into. This is really going smoothly tonight.
