Trailing edge ribs
A little more progress to report. Been working on thencenter section. Have most of the center section ply webs cut to size and Lightning holes drilled. Harbor freight circle cutter. Kinda scary! Keep your fingers away..
Working now on steaming and bending the 3/8” rib caps to shape. That should go quick and as you can see I have the spars lying in wait, ready to go for the ribs.
Center section is about ready to go together
Little more progress
looking very tidy, I'm glad to see someone else building inside a shoe box.
I don’t have much to contribute other than to say your project is awesome and I always like seeing the updates. The Chilton is one of those great little fantasy racers that always seemed to line the margins in my school books.
Nose ribs are on now. I better start making the outer wing ribs up..
Excellent use of an aluminum extrusion ladder as an Uber straight edge. Great idea. Makes a nice narrow long straight stiff bench. I'll be using that technique in the future.
I hate spending money on stuff I’m not going to use forever. Case in point- long sanding bar. Made this for free.
Float sanding the bottom of the center section is the last thing I need to do before I start skinning it..so back to it
Well I lied. I need to make the wing attach fittings before I start skinning. So while I wait for those I’ve been making more wing ribs and have started on the aileron ribs. Jigs, jigs, and more jigs
