 Sailplane Construction Project Session #64

Comet Sailplane Project
With the cowl internal structure in place as shown below, the cowl frame was removed along with the McCoy 60 engine.
A jig fixture shown below was made to secure the cowl frame to the fuselage while the exterior barrel planking was put on.
The picture below shows the cowl frame secured to the fuselage with the jig fixture.
This evening I managed to get ten 3/32" X 1/4" planking strips glued onto the bottom of the cowl frame as shown below. Notice the plywood on the front used to press the cowl frame's rear bulkhead firmly against the firewall while the planking strips are being applied.....................Tandy
