How are you going to handle the glazing between the root sections of the wing Dan? It always looks like a problem to me unless you have a moulded section to fit and match the airfoil shape.

Happy building.

The windscreen can be made from flat sheet with no trouble. Well; no more trouble than glazing ever causes! I built the Union Cub for my first Kit Scale entry and the shape given on the plan fitted perfectly. I've just ripped the windscreen off this one, as I wasn't happy with how it fitted. This may need some tinkering...

Cheers,

Dan.

Very happy today. Cub compete (Apart from struts, sprayed markings and dummy engine) weighs 103g! Well under what I was expecting. I'll not get anything done next week, but it is nearly there.

Cheers,

Dan
