The second half of the second frame #8 was glued today. It was good to have the nice weather this weekend so I could redo these laminations. I had not drawn the diagonal frame 2 over again after I screwed that one up a few months back (see June 18, 2005), so I busted out the rulers once again and drew the curve. I also drew out the frame #6 gluing strip on the bottom half of this 4 ft x 4 ft plywood sheet. The gluing strip is attached to the back of frame 6 in order to provide a surface for attaching the fuselage plywood skin aft of the wing. Both of these frames are 20 mm laminations so the molds were both drawn on 3/4 inch plywood.
