Looking forward to the build! I have the 1/4 scale kit waiting to be built. I have loved watching your 195 come together. I think (I could be wrong) that EJWash1 has a build log that he did of this that is fantastic...

It may help you during your build.

More shop timw today.

The right wing now has the top trailing edge sheeting in place. The right side wing joiner mounts have been laminated.

The left wing has been brought to the same state as the right. The joiner mounts still need to be laminated.

That really is a "Planeosaurus"! Good night, the rib on the plans dwarf those spring clamps!

Good thing that its a 3-piece wing. Gonna need a bigger trailer?

Now, now, Tom. It will go much faster if you turn the TV off.

Is there a connection between the Spezio tuholer and the spacewalker?

Thanks, everyone.

Yup, American Chopper was on all day, Wil. Carey, It was on, but I didn't watch. The TV provides background noise, unless football is on.

No Ej. I won't need a larger trailer. I'll need a larger storage area. The trailer solved that problem for a couple years, but I seem to have it, and my shop, full of models.

Mark, the Spezio, Flybaby and the Spacewalker seem to be similar designs. I don't know if there is a shared history.

Thanks again to all that are joining me in this build.

I visited x-craft last Saturday. He drilled and tapped my wing joiners.

The joiners were mounted on the ply plates that I laminated earlier.

Today, I mounted the front joinplatesr on one wing, and the rear joiner/plates on the other. Epoxy was used.
