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 !

Good evening all !

It's been a long time sinds i posted something so here we go:As promissed ,the flap and ailerons-moulds are a fact now and the 2nd wing is well underway to have his own moulds,just a few nights away20190611_223650.jpg

Thanks Bob, Steve and Phil for the nice comments,i really needed a little boost after a windless PSS weekend in France.Driving 1600km to put a electric glider in the air isn't funny at all.

Not much new to show ,exept for the 4 flaps en ailerons being ready to take on the second half of their mould.20190605_205337.jpg

After a good clean-up of the moulds (remember water dissolves the PVA) i will clean up the flap and aileron moulds.

After that it's time for the second wingembarrassed.

The next series of foto's illustrates the de-moulding of the flaps and ailerons
