    Re: My First Scratch build

    I really need a break from the molds. Skinning the wing I laid up earlier. 1/16 balsa epoxied and the vacuum. This very light Balsa will add tremendous strength to the wing and not weight much at all. With this wing/plane I have to consider all the impact that the wingtips will take and transmit threw the wing.

    The third pic is my Uber Vac taking up the vacuum. It cost about $25 Can.. oh yeah!

    Re: My First Scratch build

    Well I can finally see a plane in the future.

    I have all the wing skins finished and I can now make the ribs.

    Very pleased today.
