This is the hull as of September
2006; nestled into my humble Cootery (a former one-car garage).
Note that I have removed the
main landing gear crossover tube and assist springs so that I can get to
work on the retraction system.
Temporary aluminum "bullets" are
serving as main gear down-locks and a small vice grip clamp is holding the
nosegear link in the down over-center position
Current hull weight as shown:
There is a ton (okay, hopefully not
a ton) more to go on, but it's nice to know where I stand with the basic
hull. Hopefully, keeping it visible on the web site will keep me mindful
