Fauvel AV48

Post by Sean Fitzgibbon » 11 Nov 2018, 08:40

Hi everyone,
Thought I'd start a thread to detail the progress on my AV48 from the Vic Steele plan and Sarik Hobbies short kit. I started it at the beginning of the year in our Newent and District MAC clubroom, birthplace of the T21 that Frank, Roger and Andy built a few years ago and also the IS-5 canard.
It features an unusual building method, with formers being spaced along top and bottom keel pieces and 1/4 square stringers added to create the initial shape. It's then infilled with 1/4 balsa, sanded and glass clothed.
I'm about three quarters of the way through the infill process at the moment, progress is steady but as we only attend the clubroom two nights a week for a couple of hours, it's not a quick build!
