Hello all, I am new to this mail list. I have the same thought that you have Glenn. The Mailman subscriber list is only available to the admins so I could not check for myself, but is Eduardo Barros on this list?
Check out his technique in building his plane. The bottom menu item in the left frame -- _fuselaje -- shows how he built his fuselage. http://www.kr2-egb.com.ar/ I am not crazy about the shallow gullwing doors since I am not young enough to climb in and out with those, but they look cool nonetheless. Also, couldn't we forego much of the spruce altogether and layup 4'x8' panels and then CNC cut out the airframe parts? Maybe using something like the inexpensive Maslow CNC machine? https://www.maslowcnc.com On Mon, Aug 20, 2018 at 3:13 PM, Glenn Martin via KRnet < email@example.com> wrote: > Hi to all.
