Step 5. Glassing the sides

ch7_37

Before glassing the sides I made the rottisserie and mounted the fuselage into this. It’s basically made according to the plans. I chose to drill holes through the firewall and through F22. Have to repair them later but that’s no big deal. One difference from the plans is that I mounted castoring wheels under the frame. In this way I can move the tub freely without needing to ask for help.

The right side is glassed and peel-plied. Working solo on this it took 5 hours to complete one side, including cutting the glass.
