The fuselage

Big piece for me who tinkers in a 2m² workshop, hidden behind curtains in my two-bedroom apartment... I applied the method recommended in the kit: the lower "rail" of the fuselage is placed on a tooling (a simple wood beam), in which we have previously made notches to make room for the frames. The majority of the assembly of the rods and the skin can thus be carried out while ensuring a correct geometry.

As shown in the previous articles, many challenges with the madstab, the mad-rudder, the junction of the wings with a modified profile, and the wingeron system, made the construction of the fuselage difficult, which took 2 years, including reflection phases... And breaks because it's not just the glider in life!
