You're doing a great job. Somehow repairing someone else's disaster is quite therapeutic - you've got everything to gain and little to lose except a few materials and time.

It'll be interesting to know how much heavier the repaired airframe is and how it affects the flight performance.

Final flattening of sides, checking fitting of wing mounting before covering the repaired sides. Canopy and cowl repairs and fittings next.

Thanks for positive comments.

Having fitted the wings, I'm thinking a little more structure is required following the crash that, on hitting a wing tip, ripped out all the central wing joiner section.

First step an extra cross piece / former from 0.8 ply.

I quite enjoy fretting these and don't need a Cad laser cutter yet!
