It's shaping up very nicely now Max. Now that you mention it, I seem to remember a fair bit of shimming and sanding to get those huge wing roots to sit well against the fuselage.

Today, Sunday 7th January was spent laminating the spoilers.

The plans say two layers of 3.0 mm balsa, but the balsa I have is very soft. I've laid up two layers of 2.5 mm balsa with a 0.4 mm ply layer each side.

The control horns are piano wire bent into a loop at the ends . . .

The eyes are filled with "Knead it" epoxy filler, which will be drilled to accept the clevis'.
