Weight isn't too bad at the moment - she is just over 30lbs. Her biggest problem is the weight of the wings - they are monstrous. If she flies well, I may have to put some thought into a built-up, balsa sheeted wing - perhaps using the "min-waste" method of rib production once I have the CNC router built up.
So with that reasonable success, I rearranged the top shed so I could get a forward fus / wing assembly in there to sort the anti rotation pins and root blend.
First rough sand. The trick here is to sand down to the parcel tape I've used a parting medium, and no further :
Getting there, and first pull-apart (phew, that worked!) :
Remove the tape and a final polish up. That'll do I think :
Now it's time to flip her over and do the other under side.
