"Cloudster" Construction Project Session #11
In my last report, I showed these Stab tip and
trailing edge pattern that were cut out of the reduced Cleveland Cloudster
Well, as it turned out there was a fair amount of
modification required to fit the Jim Adams plan. I used the patterns and cut
the parts oversize. Then after a considerable amount trim, sand and fit on
each oversize part, I finally got them to fit the Jim Adams plan as shown
I took each of the four parts and traced them out
on a quadrille sheet to make correct patterns as shown below. Tomorrow I
will mail these patterns to James Lollar up in Ada, Oklahoma as he is also
building a Cloudster for the Speed 400 event.
Then I made matching parts for the other side of
the stab as shown below.
Tomorrow, I will cut out the stab ribs and start
laying out the stab structure. However, tomorrow afternoon Sue and I are
going to see the new Amelia Earhart movie so I may not get too much
