Some more activities on the wing. I have sanded the support blocks in the nose section. That went rather easy as I used soft balsa. Just sand until the black has disappeared from the the ribs.

Then the sheeting of the nose section. I bought a rather hard quality 2mm balsa so the bending will take quite some force. Too overcome that problem I wetted the top surface a bit. The sheet will start to curve by itself and can be glued with almost no force applied.

For your information, I have put the Meteor build into a temporary slow down. Summer is coming so time to go out flying! And in addition a small intermediate project... :D

Hi again,

Its been a while since I checked in due to such a crazy year. I am moving soon and once re-located I will have a large shed and workshop I can really get building.

Your Ikarus is looking fantastic and hopefully mine will meet the cut as well.

Have a great day
Steve

Hello Steve,
Thanks for your compliments!
Actually already looking forward to continue the construction of my Meteor as the flying season seems to be over!

We seem to be the three individuals building it at the moment. I was making great headway, but many things have occurred recently, work got very complex, my career has ended courtesy of Covid and I am having major surgery in a week that will slow me down more and keep me from some workshop activities. Hope to get back to it ASAP.

The Meteor assembled near the front.
