Typhoon wing centre section

Back from holidays, and back into the workshop for some Tiffie action.  I've gone around the wing and used P38 filler to get rid of the worst of the offending dents and hollows, now I need to sort the undercarriage wells.

Started off by gluing in little noggins to support a top plate :

Here is the top plate, being cut to size.  I used 3mm liteply :

Now glued in and pinned down :

Then filled and sanded when dry :

Time to fill in those truly horrible servo boxes with 3mm medium balsa linings :

I was on a roll, so made up 5 more for the other wing servo bays :

More soon!

NYE flying, and happy new year!

Well, 2018 is here, and many lovely flying days await us, I'm sure.

Over the holiday period, I managed to meet up with some PSSA pals, and get a bit of flying done on the Great Orme, in a stunning 45mph SW wind on the best slope.  The F15 and Fouga both flew well, but both were damaged on the ground in separate incidents unfortunately, both easy repairs though.
