Welcome to a work in progress

This blog is dedicated to the restoration and modification of a Glasflügel Standard Libelle H201B, and a tribute to those who have dared to do the same, and to those who are helping with seeing this dream take flight.

Test fit

Over the summer (between the rain drops), I was getting antsy on getting further along on my project, I had to see my bird in a shape different than the way she has been sitting for the past two years.

I strapped the fuselage on a cart, and rolled her out into the driveway.

Attached a wing, and mounted a fairing, just to see what they look like.

This also helped me measure the length of the wing root for the new tailer cap.

And also to see how much of the fairing covers the canopy frame.

Soon to be a reality!
