Oh man these things are tedious. After fitting the ailerons, nice and close as Budd Davisson suggested, it was time to fit the coves. The problem is….how do I do it.
Seems there is no particular way. The bottom edge glues to the rear of the spar with some additional 1/4 inch blocking where there is no doubler (outside 2 bays) Fit that around the drag wire blocks and aileron coves – tedious but easy to do conceptually. Then you end up here….
The problem now is how to I fix the top. There seems to be three approaches.
- Fit aluminium trailing edge to the ribs, fix and then glue the ply cove to the aluminium as per the Taff method (Taff is the user name of a Florida based Skybolt builder on Bi Plane Forum
- Glue as depicted above then sheet the whole thing in 1/32 ply. This is the Beej method (A Texas based Skybolt builder on Bi Plane Forum
- Infill the gaps with filler strips like the first bay here….
I’ll let you know what I choose to do.
