 Sailplane Construction Project Session #39

Comet Sailplane Project
Today I glued in all four stringers on the bottom of the Sailplane fuselage as shown below. You really have to take your time in order to get them straight.
Since the removable radio hatch cover is right in front of the bottom stringer attachment bulkhead, I added a back up 3/16" bulkhead to the 3/32" bulkhead. When covering with silk, the dope tends to pull the silk down into the square corners of the stringer attach point, so I added stringer fillets to prevent this from happening as shown below...........................Tandy
