PSS HET Rafale - build continues

The little Rafale is coming along well.  The new "removable" tail had an incident when I was tacking the carbon tubes into the fuselage - cyano managed to wick around the ends and into the tube and dowel.  It stuck solid within seconds, so that was that!  No amount of tugging would free it, it was in solid.  Only one thing to do - go with it!  I firmed up the rest of the joint all the way around, then took everything for glassing.


Fin side one glassed :


Wings glass on bottom :


Then top :


Then line up and epoxied into the funselage with 1 hour epoxy, after a good blocking back :


I'm looking forward to being at the controls for the little beauties maiden.
