Wings are now spray filled and are ready for primer and paint. I need to cut the hinge line on the top first plus I have not decided to go for airbrakes or just crow brake with dummy airbrakes ????????? . I can not get airbrakes at the moment has topmodel and gliders dis are both out of stock. So may hopefully fit them later???????.

Nice work Roo. Good to see a glass ship built rather than bought

Thanks Vince I do not know why more people make glass gliders from scratch it is not that hard and a lot quicker than building in wood unless you are C.W . :D . I have also started to make the canopy tray. I have a load of PVC foam left from when I used to build carbon sailboards. So have cut out the tray and bent it with a heat gun. I will sandwich it with carbon and glass when I have some epoxy left over .

Andrew,
You really must try to do something about your camera, you will give us all eye strain.

Great build as usual though.
