Hi all:

To me, composites get you big parts fast - wood/sheet metal, you build lots of details, then sub-assemblies, then big parts...

Same amount of work, just different timing.

You can help yourself with composites by doing neat lay-ups, using peel ply, careful trimming, finishing parts as they're buit - to avoid the "fill & sand the entire airplane syndrome".

Epoxy wipes are a huge time saver.

Regards,
James
