Cliff Evans has asked that I build the 1st kit Of the Moswey III that Jilles Smitte has designed. It is 1/3 scale and of the usual construction as Cliff and Jilles other models and designs. So here we go!
I`m going to start with the wings. As I dislike gull wings I`ll get them out of the way first. Starting with bending the tapered spars.

Hi Richard
Good to see the Moswey started. Cliff is very lucky to have his personal builder.
I am with you with the gull wings . I have designed many gull wing models but so far have not built one myself. Maybe one day
Attached some prints of the Moswey 3D model with the surface sheeting removed. I am biased of course but do like these type of pictures

Wing progressing well. Leading edges and tips now added. Cliff has elected to change the brakes as the brakes shown on the plan are from the Moswey II. He is designing the scissor type brakes that is seen on the Moswey III.
