Aren't the pieces with slots in affect spars? if so there has been a lot of strength removed I'm just wondering if that's wise?

Another fin of beauty graces the forum Alan
It's not just the fin
hi guysI'm sorry i must be a bit thick cos i cant work out what the ( FTFY ).can some one translate it for me not up to date with code stuff planeking-robin
I had to Google it. The meaning I've chosen to interpret it as is "Fixed That For You". As I like not just the fin, I'm not sure it was a fix! Alan
Oh lord, sorry I won't be at all amusing if explained:Pup cam wrote " a thing of beauty"which I quoted using a pun(ish) to replace "thing" with "fin" (since we were looking at the rather lovely balsawork on your hurricane fin)Wrote "FTFY" (ie "fixed that for you") after it to point out the change.
It does seem a shame to cover all of that lovely wood working up.
Although a bit ugly :-) Come on Tart (Robin) , thought you would be loading up more photos by now :-p
I too have only just spotted this - fantastic build.Looking at the that beautiful stick and former rear fuselage I do wonder how many people realise that structurally the Hurricane was not actually made like that. (Attachment Link) In essence it was a substantial steel tube space frame with a light weight structure on the outside simply for streamlining.Not meant as any sort of criticism just an observation.Can't wait to see it complete.
