I'm getting the fuselage sides together.  I'm trying to work through all my boxes of scrap material for this quarantine build.

I finally made some progress today.  I was sort of mentally stuck, plus work has been busy.  I wasn't happy with my fuselage sides and couldn't decide whether to start again or fix them..... I ended up fixing them.  I made a 1/32 semi-temp bulk head to help me keep things square.  I will ultimately cut most of it away.

I'm about to start cutting wing ribs and have located good LE and TE stock in my supply.

I am happy you got this much done and sure hope you can keep working on the model. Work is important but so is this relaxing model. Just keep going alright?

I finally got the wings built.  I still need to shape and sand them up, but I'm pleased with them.  Pretty light for me!!! 1/32 ribs except at the root, the mid brace location and the tip.  Total parts now weight about 8 grams.

Next up is the tail surfaces and the front of the fuselage.

And if you forget to put those wings on, it'll still fly.

Tim, I agree.  It is very much a 'box kite'  Smiley

I got the nose block cut and mounted, plus landing gear and some 'other to do' items.

Exciting news...... my wife actually said I can put '2' planes on the new bookshelves in our new home theater room  Smiley  I only have one plane outside of my man cave room (Gee Bee Z which is on our Bar).  I have the Phantom biplane racer out as one choice and she likes it.  I need to pick one more - she didn't like the Piaggio Pc.7 - thought it was too large.

I got the fuselage front finished up, added material around the LG for tissue attachment, started the wheel pants (I'll use half a wheel in each), little things like that.  I am just about ready to start covering.  I found some nice black tissue and I will use Silver Isaki for my trim.  This will be my first black colored plane.  I'm contemplating lightly airbrushing the inner fuselage cockpit frame work a 'grey' color since it will show through the windshield and clear wing center - or I'll just let it be.

I have started to cover the wings.  I only cut half the tissue needed...... I forgot it was a biplane - Ha.

I also did a light airbrushing of a dark grey/black on the fuselage.   I think it will look nice when completed.  I remembered to also spray a 1/16th strip for the windshield center braces that I will install after covering.

Fun plane  Smiley

Progess today.  Lots of covering.  It is very Black.  I think the silver trim will really make it pop.

Friday was a big day for me.  My youngest son got married.  All the plans were cancelled until the 1 year anniversary, but June 26th they got married and we were all there via Zoom  Smiley  It really was awesome.  I just had to share.

New Eze Dope applied to all the black surfaces at about 20:1 ratio.  It went on very well and even.  I'm going to toss my old jar of Eze Dope (about 4 years old, almost gone and now kind of thick) it hasn't given me even coatings the last couple of times.

Next up is Metallic Silver Esaki trim, wind screens and landing gear fairings.

Congratulation to your son Brad. The downside of course is that you may soon be a grandfather Smiley The Hyperbipe is coming on well and will look pretty distinctive in black!!

I'm working the trim.  It's going OK, but not great.  I think it will look great from 8 feet way but not so good up close.  I'm almost done, just the wing LE's, LG fairings and a few items.  Then assembly of all the parts.
