OZNoP 2018 HOBO


I have the Plan, got lots of extra lines drawn already, Hobo is a 44" wing that was introduced in 1948 as an IC FF. It is being built as an electric RET, the plan shows a exposed engine. I will be cowling this to try and give it a more finished look. Go at it hard in a couple of days.

Good Start so far


Day 2 1/2 got the tail feathers built, sanded and hinged, Have stripped and cut everything, just cut to length and glue it. Three day weekend here, which could mean, I am going to get lots done OR nothing at all. Have a look at the pics, that is everything I need to finish the 'bones'.

So, hinged before covering. Doesn't this have its own drawbacks..?

Sorry Douglas, for not being more specific, the hinges are cut in and tested but not glued, I will do that after covering. It is the part I like the least, usually putting it off as long as possible, then rushing it and doing a less than stellar job.

You couldn't go wrong with instructions as comprehensive as that! Must have been done by the same person who did the instructions for the roll-up window fly screens I have just fitted!! Good progress.
