Since we have an improvement in the weather I have taken some pics!
Many apologies to the tidy workshop police....

Mine's worse than that, Malcolm - but look what a thing of beauty has come out of yours. 8-)

Here are some 3d printed parts for the Oly.
Cliff very kindly printed the airbrake levers and elevator horn using carbon filament.
The other items I have been using my lockdown time learning about 3d printing - fascinating.
The instrument panel was fun to do - I even included a Cosim Vario!
The canopy latches were also printed.
Nigel I am looking forward to meeting up at Aggie Head. I think we could all do with a bit of fresh air now ( after I have given the workshop a spring clean.
Anyway, back to the endless filling, fairing, sanding, filling, fairing, sanding..........

I hang my head in shame on the state of the workshop but I do seem to create lots and lots of shavings and sawdust. It is slightly tidier now.
Just realised a fairly massive error.
I have built a quarter scale version of Southdown Gliding Club's Supercub to tow my quarter scale CW Minimoa but that would be all wrong in front of a third scale Oly.
Project for next lockdown - 1/3 scale Cub!
