I noticed one default on a sharp edge on the root-side mould but that will be no problem to repairembarrassed20190816_174748.jpg

After bolting everything together and cleaning-up the edges its time to take the moulds apart.Carefully twisting the structure helps to get a wooden wedge (I use mixing sticks) between the parts.If you follow the insructions of the epoxy supplyer ,and use a good mould release agent there schould be no problem taking them apart.20190816_174640.jpg

Thanks for replying gents !

It is indeed a work that is not done in six months,but in the end (i need three planes now)it will be faster then starting three or even more models from scratch.

As for the foto's,i use my mobile whenever i think there is something to show that helps the viewers to follow the build.And yes ,sometimes there are traces of epoxy on my screendont know,nothing that a tissue with acetone can't handlewink 2

The reinforcements also serve as a support when the mould is upside down to form the actual wing(to prevent a warped wings)

The last image shows the root-side ready to mould. This will be the last of 22(!) moulds for the wings.

the reason it took so long was the high temperatures we've had the last few weeks,up to 41 °C.

It's impossible to work with epoxy at this rates so i had to wait till late at night to startclock laminating.

It's in the twenties now so i can move on.Just a few day's and i can start making wings : FINALLY.

Next post will show the whole of the 22 moulds.wink

Stay tuned and comment please! That's what keeps me going !
