Huge setback with the wing build,
The epoxy supplier had given us wrong epoxy hardner,
The day after the molding, the epoxy was hard and looked really good, but there was no strength in the glue and we could just pull the layers apart.
Almost like it was velcro..

All the persons that have seen the wingparts have never seen anything like it.

Snot and drool would have worked better...

:censore

Now we got the right stuff and have made some test molding, and it work great.

Next time I got a new epoxy produkt, I will test it before I start..

Only problem is the foam moulds was damaged, and we ran out of fiberglass cloth.

So almost back to day one..


Today we made the first steps for the next try..
