What if anything has been planned in the way of reinforcement to keep that oh so slender fin rigid Cliff?

Hi , for those interested in Genesis may I recomend Martin Simon's Sailplanes 1965-2000 book. His "Project Genesis" is a great read and his drawings and pictures exemplary. 1990 was the early days of "Graphlite pultrusion" spars. The wing structure strength to weight that Jim Marske achieved was remarkable. The model that I saw fly at Long Mynd gave a very impressive performance at quarter scale. RegardsJohn.

It is a work in progress Brian, there is plenty to choose from using the parts for the built up version but, we need to get the fuss made first! All in good time Brian, all in good time.

I sure that John will take due account of the fin loads when he decides on the fuselage layup. :)
