I just got back from Manor's shop to see the new wing out of the molds. It's perfect. Joe was acting like it was just another day at the shop but I think we are really going to see amazing things from this plane. I asked him if he will be the first to 400. Never one to set his goals at what he thinks will be easy, he replied that he wants to be the first to 500. If you get a chance to see this wing in person you won't think that is crazy talk, it's like a piece of steel.

Congratulations Joe

KOTH has a lot of good images to post from today so I may delete these when he gets a chance to post his. These really don't do justice to the quality of the finish.

Dude, that's a ton of carbon. You could shave using that.

This is only half the spar height

overall view

Spars in each aileron/flaps, squishy foam 1 larger than the other that will touch both skins when the mold was shut

another overall look

Can i mix you a drink captin stubbing

Closing her up... someone's excited...

you would think a stripper was gonna pop out.... or a fortune cookie with a million dollars in it.

Nice reflection... right out of the mold! that House of Kolor paint aint no joke

Like a proud papa...

ya know, none of the photo's capture the true flourescent of the YELLOW... the others yeah, pretty close but my camera can't seem to capture the yellow properly.

How's the finish?? Unbelievable!! Looks slippery.

As long as you get the conditions this should handle 400, no worries.
