Asw 27 4.3 build

Post by roo Hawkins »

Now I am near the end of my dg 800 build I have started one more build. I am not planning it to be a quick build maybe finish it sometime next year. Plans done on a movie projecter again. Started to carve plug on Sunday 2.1/2 hours so far. If it turns out ok I may make a mould this time?

That's an easier way of getting the wing root in... every day's a school day!

Work has been restarted pulg will hopefully be finished in the next day or so. Resin and carbon ordered from easy compersits so will start glassing this week or next.. I am doing the canopy and cockpit lip differently this time by separating them first and glassing separately .
