Zen time and Airplanes

It’s been very hard to find any time to work on this Luscombe 8E Silvaire from Brodak. With studying for my PPL, going to Civil Air Patrol meetings, helping their cadets with their aerospace education program and running my studio it’s been a handful.

I got to work on it yesterday for a whole two hours. I needed the break and the zen. In that time I managed to frame the rest of the plane up and stick the parts together for a look.

Today at the end of the day I plan to shape sand the wing and add the ailerons.

The wing flattened nicely and replacing the balsa spars with spruce top and bottom really made the wing super strong. The weight increase was worth it for the strength. As it is this plane weighs very little ( maybe 11 oz.) and the 370 E-flite motor on 2s 1300’s will be more than enough power and give me long flights.
