I finally made some progress today.  I was sort of mentally stuck, plus work has been busy.  I wasn't happy with my fuselage sides and couldn't decide whether to start again or fix them..... I ended up fixing them.  I made a 1/32 semi-temp bulk head to help me keep things square.  I will ultimately cut most of it away.

I'm about to start cutting wing ribs and have located good LE and TE stock in my supply.

It's much easier to ride the horse in the direction its going.

Ha.  Sorry Tom  Smiley  I love building the civilian home built aircraft.  Colors and designs are 'anything goes'.  My preference is always to be inspired by an aircraft and not duplicate it.  That's just me.

I'm getting the fuselage sides together.  I'm trying to work through all my boxes of scrap material for this quarantine build.

You've done it again...picked one right off my "To Do List"  I've been looking at that plane for several years now.  I think it would be a biplane that would really simplify biplane construction without cabane struts.  Central fuselage mounting for both upper and lower wings.  Again I'll get out the popcorn and soda and prepare to follow your build to learn how I should do it!!! Smiley
If you haven't guessed it already...I like red!!! here's some of my research on the Hiperbipe...

Up next will be a Sorrell SNS-7 HyperBipe  Smiley  It looks like a fun fuselage to build.
