I am only limited by the size of the printing bed, what scale do you require?

With a bit of sunny weather upon us & the 2nd wing structure now at the same build state as the 1st, it’s time for a trial assembly ;)
Next job is to prepare the balsa spar caps & False LE for applying the top skin.

It's a beautiful thing, Peter.

Almost a shame to cover all that lovely work. 8-)

The grass is Ok Peter. Keep the cut hight high for the first cut, a quick scarrify and a spring feed to finish!
The aeroplane is not looking too shabby either.

A metal bashing day today ;)
All horns, wing retainer clips, brass tailwheel support plates plus first of the main wheel support plates made, so just the 2nd mainwheel plate & front wheel plate (as indicated by the paper templates) left to do tomorrow.
(The tailwheel plates are my design & I decided to use 1mm Brass rather than Aluminium in order to get strength from thinner plate as these will be attached to outside of the wheel box framework as per the full size. With 0.6mm ply fuselage skins, only the very bottom parts should be visible. (On the full size, the wheel brackets are welded to the outside of the tubular framework which is fabric covered as shown below).

All 3 wheel axle supports now fitted & wheels checked for fit.
The nose wheel is a 3.5” Dubro mounted on a 4mm axle, the mainwheel is a 110mm FEMA mounted on a 6mm axle & the tailwheel is 67mm, mounted using a M3 hex headed bolt.
The tailwheel brackets are sandwiched between the 1/8” ply plates visible in the photo & the 0.8mm external skin yet to be fitted.
