The wing is covered, but my big hands that lock a times did just that and destroyed the fuselage, so I needed to order some material to complete it again. So the length of time since posting any photos.

Man, been there, done that!  Had a medication induced hand cramp that nearly destroyed the fuselage of my second Irish Jumping Bean prototype.  My sympathies!

Sorry about reading this late, but why didn't you just e-mail me?  I would have sent you another set of wood.

Sorry to hear of the demise of the fuselage. I  understand about the body giving up on you at times. Keep on plugging away.  Smiley

Ian, as soon as the wood arrives I will start on the fuselage again and this time when the hand is not cooperating it will be time to stop for the day. Shocked

Sorry Scigs, it seems that Ive walked all over your thread. I will put my posts in the proper thread.

I applied orange Esaki tissue to the wing, it is delicate for my large hands and fingers to not crush this wing. Some times my fingers lock up.

Now to find some new double edged razor blades so I can trim the excess tissue off for the top tissue to be applied.

Here she is all completed after a week of allowing Sig lite dope dry. Maybe after the Santa Ana winds I can take her out flying

Yes, she went together well and should be a good flyer.  I preshrunk the tissue on a picture frame and covered the model with Esaki applied 50/50 Elmer's glue. I brushed on Sig Lite Cote and will leave the parts pinned up for a few days since this dope takes awhile to dry.
