There aren't adjectives available to adequately describe this build. So, good stuff.


What is that white adhesive y'all are using on the formers?

It is a mixture of epoxy, milled glass fibers, glass bubbles and cotton flock. Future airplanes will use an adhesive from west systems to save us the time of making up the mixture.
