It now resembles a flying bird cage.
There are 30 stringers requiring 318 glue joints. That doesn’t include the glue joints in all of the 3/8” X 1/8” strips used to form the cowl. I would estimate that I have broken at least 1/4 of the stringers so far - and I’m not done yet!
The weight so far seems good at 29.8 oz for all that you see. How does that stack up with other contest models?
