Welcome to a work in progress

This blog is dedicated to the restoration and modification of a Glasfl├╝gel 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.

4 years now .... and nearing the home stretch!

Update on the project - Mid-March

We are now just a little over the 4 year mark on when I first found this Libelle on the SSA Classified Ads. So, where are we?

I created a punch list of things left to do:

Wings
           
Mount winglet spring pins.

Fuselage
            
Forward wing alignment bar primed, painted gray.
            Cockpit back and inside under ledge – painted gray.
            Safety wire on bolts in gear well – release turnbuckle – Aileron cantilevers.
 Canopy
            Repaint interior frame.
           


Horizontal Stabilizer
             Primed and painted

Rudder
            W/B - painted.


Ailerons
            W/B - and painted.
All we need now is a couple of weeks of good steady warm weather to paint the plane!
I'm still optimistic that we will be done by the end of April!
