Lynn, I've talked to Jeremy about putting the SK on the Rotec website.
We'd both be delighted for that to happen.
I got the lower aft skin onto the centre section today, and the
top will go on tomorrow, after I've prepared the leading edge, so
should be completed at the weekend. Then onto the wings for a big
push upto Christmas. The spars and most of the ribs are ready to
go, apart from the interplane strut bracketry, but that shouldn't
hold things up, I can add those later.
Photos soon! Vic (20th Nov 2003)
are the first pictures of the structurally complete Maksimov SK26
centre-section. The pictures are not best quality, unfortunately.
I have asked Vic Long to also supply a close up of the underside
to show the strut pick-up lugs, and the roll-wire attachment lug,
we should see an assembled upper wing panel. I am definitely getting
excited over here!
I have only one Gobsheet left to do, and then its on to the Type
S lower, and Type R upper and lower wing panels respectively, and
their aileron linkages....
Best wishes, Lynn (29th Nov 03)
Jim, YES!! Vic Long and Jeremy Moore are well on with the prototype,
with the centre-section and upper wings progressing. The fuselage
and tailgroup are nearly finished, and they are very enthusiastic
about installing the R2800.
Cheers, Lynn (November 2003)
