Looking good Roo!
I'm mainly posting as we observed that there isn't a lot of feedback on the site at the moment so hopefully this will encourage you to keep posting your build threads.
It'll be really interesting to see your Fox next to my Purbeck one....

Hi Simon the fox and the asw 27 builds are both taking a short rest. I have collected my veneer and petg and also the pink foam that I got from you. I too think the forum is not being used much if it is not used more, members will stop using it. I already no of 3 members who have stopped posting. I too have cut my posts down down to a lack of feedback. If we do not use it we may lose it. this maybe a subject for a diff thread .

It always goes a bit quiet this time of year, as people are on holiday, and most building goes on in the Winter.

Keep building and posting Roo, we all like your builds.

Another quote from Mark Twain springs to mind: “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.”

The wing panels are now cut . cut out of floormate pink foam this is one of the best foams to cut but is not now available .I got these sheets from Simon w Smith and was left over from his asg build he only had two sheets left so I did not want to mess the cutting up. The section is HQ 1.5 and rg 14 at the tip. Thanks Simon :D

Hi Roo,are you departing from true scale and fitting flaps to slow it down when landing on the slope,They sure slip on by when you don't want them too. :oops:
What did you think of Simon's Fox at the Mynd the week end? Stunning performance hey. :o

Terry the ailerons will be made slightly longer and will be split for flap aileron mix. I have started to make the spars carbon wood . I am this time laminating the carbon tow on to the wood first to get a good fix instead of laying the tow in the foam first then wood.
