CM 8/13

Post by patte de loup »

I have started my new acrobatic glider last April, hopping it will be finished in next May for the annual GPR meeting in Menez Hom. Huge challenge when, you are still in activity and normanlly I make 2 years for building one :lol:
The real one is stored at Anger Macé Museum and mine will be at 1/3 scale with 4.5 meter of wingspan

John,
I cut strips of 10 mm width from balsa sheet of 3mm thick for planking the fuse. Same method for making a hull of boat.
