    Trev, I think there was a commitee that came up with the name. I’ll let the chairman of that commitee explain the acronym. I’d hate to state it publicly because it wasn’t my brain child.

    Im beginning to mock up all the parts so I can join the MB to the fuse sides. To do that, I need some MB tabs.

    So, I laminated one layer of CF fabric on each side of some 1/16 balsa. The pieces turned out strong and light. Because of the peel ply, the finish on the CF is matte... which looks pretty cool IMO. Just something different from the high gloss.

    I know,I know ,Just a bit of humor Jim .Have a few Airman wheels kicking around .. Those plastic rims just look so Lego in all that advanced gear, struck me as funny ...

    You meant why make the tire , they didn't invent the rim either . The wheel was invented long ago LOL

    Looking good Craig.
    Peel ply is a material you add on top of CF fabric/epoxy so it will absorb excess resin as its drying. As a side effect, it leaves a real good looking matte finish.

    Not that it matters, but I think Vern (WRE) makes his own tires. He’s an overachiever
