That's the shop I'm doing this build in. It's huge, and full of planes and tools and all kinds of stuff. :) It belongs to Claude Vest, the president of my R/C club, and something of a Simitar evangelist.
Anyway, last night I finished up the sheeting of one wing panel. It takes quite a bit of time as you have to measure and cut a lot of 1/16" balsa sheets and then fit them to the panel, using flooring tape and wood glue. I'm told this is the longest part of the build. Heh, I believe it.
I've barely used any of the huge box of various wood sheets and sticks I bought for this build...
Both wing panels are sitting waiting for glue to set up, and I'll pick back up on Tuesday, when I'll finish up the other wing panel and then continue on to hopefully preparing them to be joined!
Dude…you’re making me want to go out and buy a plane. :D
