    Ragwing RW1 Ultra Piet

    Yesterday I made an attempt to cover the bottom of the fuselage. It ended in frustration and me calling it a day. Today I decide to try again and it went on very easy. The difference a day makes.

    I got the cowling in the paint booth, I has 2 coats of primer and a coat of pain on it now. The elevators are attached and wires hooked up so now they go up and down. still moving forward though slowly

    Been putting coats of Yellow on the wing, now I have two coats on the bottom and one on the top I have also been tinkering with the control cables and tail feathers. The tail feathers are on and the rudder goes left and right when you push the peddles

    Work is still slowly progressing, Haven't updated the log in a while. so far one wing is primed and ready to have it sprayed yellow. I also ordered some aluminum for fabricating a cowling.

    Not a lot of progress to report, life has been to busy to get very far on the project. I did run some of the cables, the rudder pedals are hooked up to the turn buckle. I also got a coat of primer on the top of one of the wings.

    ironed the fabric over the rear turtle deck, then glued fabric to the front turtle deck. My plan is to do the re-enforcing patches and tapes, on the upper part, then paint the areas were the comm antenna and the tail feathers will attach. attach the tail feathers then run the cables before...

    I fabricated a hard point for a comm antenna and covered the turtle deck. looks more like an airplane.

    The fabric is glued on and shrunk on the left side. The fuselage is turned back right side up.

    finished shrinking the fabric on the right side and putting the coat of echobond on where it attached to the plywood. then flipped the plane over and put the fabric on the left side.

    Glued the fabric onto the left side of the fuselage. Now have to let it dry then shrink it. I also threw in a picture of the finished glare shield.

    The End of the Rotax 582 UL

    I still wonder if one of these Powertrains Detail might make a good replacement for the 503.

    Fabricated and installed the glare shield. it is made from a piece of leftover turtle deck plywood, some foam rod and a little bit of leather. all the wax paper is there to keep the t-88 from sticking to the instrument panel

    been working on routing my fuel lines then glued the plywood over the front turtle deck. I put the primer bulb so it runs from the rear tank only, I figure if i have an issue with the bulb I can switch to the front tank and have about 2 gallons of gas to get me someplace.
