Due to the circumstances of covid and family isssues I'm extending the cookup through May.  I hope to be able to start my project soon.  Thanks for all who have continued work and I hope this doesn't discourage anyone from participating but encourages them to find a model plan and join us.  I commend those of you who are involved in the Nassise Cookup on HPA!  I am following that cookup with great interest!

Sorry to hear that youíve been unwell Tom; I hope things are improving now.

Iím continuing to inch forward with the Semiquaver. I have made a nose block. The bearing is just aluminium tube set at the plans suggested 3 deg right and 5 down. Then a tail skid from 1/64th ply. Not very detailed but Iím not aiming for super scale appearance.
Now I have started the undercarriage. The legs are some hard 1/16th balsa. In the photo the bottom piece of balsa is a simple jig to hold the legs square and at the correct angle while the spreader is glued on. The completed undercarriage will be fitted later on as the front legs fit to the fuse but the rear legs go on the lower wing. I have made sockets for the legs to go into rather than just glue it onto the tissue. Last photo is a set of bits for the wheels.

Looking fantastic.  I hope to start soon.  Been challenged with the Bronchitis and then my wife got sick and so we've been back and forth to the Dr's.  Too much time waiting in car from my perspective!  But much better now.  Thanks guys for carrying on!

I havenít done a lot more on the Semiquaver but in the interests of keeping things ticking over I have done the next best thing.....I took more pictures Smiley.

The things I have done are; adding hard points on the wings for the interplane struts; sheeting and sanding the bottom of the nose and the top of the deck between the nose and the cockpit; the last bit as a seat for the pylon which supports the top wing.
Everything so far weighs a smidge under 7.5g. That doesnít sound too bad if you say it quickly but when you realise I still have to make interplane struts, nose block and prop and wheels and undercarriage, then it all needs covering and finishing; I donít think itís going to be light  Embarrassed.

Hi Tim - Agree with your point about the short grain in the ribs. I tried using the lamination method but the form was the problem so I use two 1/32nd sheets laminated cross grain and sanded to 1/16th, helps a lot with the strength of the ribs and the internal brace of each rib goes a long way toward the overall strength. I usually renew my membership in the "Broken Stringers and Cross Members" club somewhere in the build, don't keep track of my fingers too well.
Mike

Thanks for the link Mike. I have used a couple of those methods before. I like the simplicity and speed of Toms method for smaller models, but when ribs get bigger and the amount of ďshort grainĒ at the front of the rib gets too much then I prefer the laminated sheet method that Mike Stuart documents on his ffscale site.

Here is where I got to before work got in the way. Upper wing is sanded. The ailerons are separated and ready to be hinged.

Tim - Here's the link to the "how to" and thank you for the good words. I've worked out some of the kinks that come along with this method so let me know if and when you want to give it a try. https://www.stickandtissue.com/forum/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1403712370

The lower wing is now sanded and the upper wing is on the board. A bit more complex as it has separate ailerons.
I have another two days to get as much done as I can and then itís back to work.

Thanks Mike. How have you done the top rib strips for the wing? They look great.
I have cut a small pile of ribs and the lower wing is framed up on the board.

Tim - Great progress and I'm in with everybody else on the great work especially the cockpit combing.

The Crosby half shell method was a bust and it got binned over the holidays and resumed in the fuselage frame. Got the formers cut and installed and the side stringer installed so all will not fall thru the frame. Wing is well underway and the tail section parts are complete with airfoil sanded in. Should have the wing completed by week end and only the fuselage to do and can start covering and detailing.

Thanks chaps. The cockpit coaming was the second attempt as the first didnít work as planned. Very fiddly but I find it very satisfying when I get it done right.
Today I made the tail feathers so the plan can come off the board now and be turned over for the wings.
