After glueing the trailing edge wood (not shaped to final yet!) it was time to do a bit of tube-bending. It’s 4 mm tube, and for the life of me, I don’t know why it is so soft. Almost feels like copper tubing. Never mind, just try to match the shape.
Trying to hold the camera at just the right distance and level is probably easy if you were to create a support. Maybe one day? I just needed to get the tip shape lined up with the trailing edge, and make sure the lines ‘flow’.
A quick copy paste on the original drawing makes it look close enough. There is some distortion in the camera, the rib distances are correct.
Good enough to carry on!
In the meantime I’m making more ribs, more trailing edges, more of everything. But that has all been documented, I’m not repeating it 😉
