 Sailplane Construction Project Session #134

Comet Sailplane Project
Today I finished putting on the third coat of clear dope on the Fuselage's Polyspan Lite first covering. I will let this dry overnight before I do a final sanding with 600 paper in preparation for the second covering of orange silk tomorrow afternoon. I got out the remainder of the 3' X 9' piece of orange silk and placed it on the work table as shown below. This remaining piece measures 36" X  58" as shown below. I am going to have to take care in the way I cut this silk up or I will not have enough.
The picture below shows the layout plan I made for cutting up the single large piece of orange silk. This layout shows me that I will have just enough orange silk to do the complete job with very little to spare.....................Tandy
