Couldn't help it. Top wing is ON! Just inverted V-struts for the cabanes and a tad of extra rigging.


Phew...Dan

looks very smart, wondering what would be needed to turn it into the first Atlantic crossing aircraft. No idea what markings if any, that aircraft had/has.


I know it is located at Science Museum, London - Wikipedia.


Nore at. Alcock and Brown | This Day in Aviation


Excerpt, " Alcock and Brown’s airplane was a Vickers F.B.27 Mk.IV Vimy, serial number C105. The Royal Air Force registration was B9952. The owner of the aircraft was the manufacturer, Vickers Limited. On 1 May 1919, it was assigned Certificate of Registration No. 18, with the civil registration G-EAAR. Contemporary photographs of the Vimy do not show any registration markings, however".

Thank you Mike, Don, Fred and Glen! Yes Glen...it's dang huge. I'll take a shot of it soon with a ruler or something. Quite the wingspan!


I got the rest of the rigging on and the inverted-V cabanes. I also put on a little attachment on the top of the mid section leading edge which will have some tubing coming from it soon. I also got the ailerons all squared away and attached. Next will be some more center section detail then onto attaching the four wing panels! Holy Cow...

Thank you Mor54! It's actually far from perfect, but it does look the part and I do indeed like it a lot.


Tonight I put on some fuse wire for the various fuel or cooling lines as well as used aluminum tubing for the exhausts. Looks pretty dang sharp.


I'm avoiding the wings but they are next in line. Wish me luck...Dan

Thank you, Ray! Maybe you'll see it "live" at the meeting tomorrow...


I actually got the bottom wings on, secure and pretty darn straight. I figured if these were attached correctly, then the struts and top wing should go in pretty easily with this strong base. That's my theory anyway.


Struts next and the top wing should go on nicely. I leave for Murderapolis to visit my mom from Sunday to the 17th so I hope to get this thing squared away by then. Then, finish her over the Christmas Holiday.


Thanks for looking,
Dan
