Very nice framing, Tim...especially like the effort you've put in around the cockpit coaming.† That can be a delicate process but certainly goes a long way toward a detailed appearance...that extra effort. Smiley

I have some time off from work over the Christmas and new year so I have been doing a bit more on the Semiquaver.
I had some duties on Christmas Day which took priority. My wife and I were leading the Christmas Day service at our Church, and I was speaking, so I only managed a little work before then; but now I am free to do some modelling for a few days Smiley.

This is where I am up to now. The stringers are done. Rubbber peg anchors installed. Sheeting around the nose and cockpit area are also done. I have made a start on the tail feathers by laminating the curved fin and rudder edge and making some hinges for the rudder and elevators. I hope to do those tomorrow.

Another weekend, a little more progress on the Semiquaver. It now has all the top deck formers. These took a little longer as I didnít really trust the plan shapes so I re-drew them. It often seems to happen with plans these days that get scanned, copied, copied again then scanned again etc etc. I will check the wings for the same reason.

Was working along on the Crosby when I saw the stringers looking like hills and valleys, the formers in the middle are a full 3/16 inch to narrow so had to add a stringer onto the stringer and will need to sand to shape. Then some of the other stringers started to look a bit wonky and had to shim them before gluing in place. Also, the plan has all the stringers converging to a point at the rear with a lot of bunching up so decided to stop, pick it all up, recycle it and begin again on my fuselage fixture. When I got it off the board surprised how rigid it was so cut off the tail cone and started adding the opposing formers. I know what to watch for so still building.

After studying the plans there are a few deviations from the norm that I'm going to have to figure out when it comes to the nose of the fuselage.  I'm still studying!

I've enlarged the wing span of the Avro 625 Avian Monoplane from 24" to 27"† Here's the enlarged plan.

It does seem to easier to make a banana shaped fuselage than a nice straight fuselage!  But you have made a great start.  I sometimes cut foamboard squares/rectangles as needed to fit at each former/crossmembers stations, just a little short in height to allow the cross members to be placed!  You've done well!! Smiley

The two fuse sides have been separated and sanded and I have started the process of turning them into a full fuselage.

This is one of the processes that I find trickiest. Why is it so easy to turn square sticks and frames into a propeller or banana shaped object Sad.

Bob,
Here's the link to the plans of the Avro 625 Avian 24in span on Outerzone: Avro 625 Avian Plan

The subject G-AAYW was one of only two Avro 625 Avian Monoplanes built. Flown in the 1929 King's Cup Race by Captain Neville Stack.

Working on the initial layout for the KB. W/S is 16". Vert and horiz stabilizers have been enlarged slightly.

Tom - The Avro is a great looking airplane, anxious to see your work again.

I'm underway also. The Crosby fuselage is 2 inches longer (23 inches) than my fuselage assembly fixture so using the half-shell method. Laminations are mostly done and will assemble the vertical stab today. Wing span is† 18 inches.
