ThanksTom.
I still reorganizing and trashing stuffs.

I'd like to get back to a little building.

I did cut cores for my Mig and had to put a little filler in the bottom core as I got some wire hop from my technique getting outa hand for a sec

I will post a pic after I got both cars in

Welp, been working on mine a little bit, I sheeted the wings with 1/64" plywood and gorilla glue. Glued on my 3/4" basswood LE, sunk in the 1/2" balsa sub trailing edge and added a 3" basswood tip block. Used a power planer to get most of the material off then my cheap HF belt sander to get it close enough. I'll finish it up by hand with a sanding block.

So far my span is at 56" which I think I'm gonna stick with. hopefully I'll find some time this week to get them in the bag. Not going for a heavy weight.

Ha, you're getting me confused with Garrett...I'm Kevin. Though we do look alike, he's just the better looking one.

That's just one of the reasons I Iike building with you guys, you're very motivating!
Got my wings in the bag tonight, a layer of 1.? and a layer of 6oz.
I couldn't get my vacuum pump to crank out more than 5" of vacuum. I tapped on everything, and when that failed to work, I plugged it in. All good now!

Sorry Kevin, Looking good and keeping it light will be a nice! It will be interesting how light you come in at with this build method.

I want to build a 60oz Mig so it will fly regularly!
. 10 oz fuse though

Ill have to double check when I get home, but I think roughly 10" root, and 4" tip at 25", so with the 3" tip block added, the tip chord narrows a bit more. Sweep will be pretty far back, probably 3" to give it that equal taper look, and to help keep the weight down.

Thanks Joe, Im not shooting for a particular weight, but definitely wont be adding any sled tactics, ha. The fuse itself is 17oz, so were already off to a poor start.

Thanks Joe--you DA MAN!!! I'm glad to see my Mig is being built by so many slopers!!! It will be fun to see them at the slope. I know the Amigos all have one--- gotta fly mine with Ian--their about the same weight. But I want one I can fly here in South OC too!!
