Prototype Build Volume 3 Part 2 – Covering it…Scarf anyone?

Another busy week and the covering has been completed. New skills learnt were to scarf the covering plywood. I marked the scarf lines at 8 times the thickness of the flexi-plywood, being 3mm and lined them up before sanding them down.

Went rather easily and once the fuselage had been covered, the overlapping areas sanded down nicely to a smooth finish.

The balance of the 2mm aluminium parts has arrived, some of which had been bent by the supplier. All looking good.

The seat is back from the upholsterers and looking good.

Next up is the Malcolm Hood so that the windscreen can be fitted. Eight weeks to go to Aero SA and much to do!
