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.

Getting Closer!!

Over this past week, Joseph knocked out the repair cleanup on the horizontal stabilizer.. 

..... and the fairing.



He was also near to the finished on the canopy frame.




All there is left to cleanup and prime are the ailerons.

This week, I picked up the metal wingtip wheel frames and can start on making the fairing covers for them.

They will be mounted to the winglets after we get the glider assembled and we can see how they will need to be positioned to prevent the ailerons from dragging the runway during the take off roll.








The shop at the airport is geting busy, and Joseph will need to break from the Libelle project over the next 3 weeks. But that will also be about the time the weather will hopefully warm up enough to allow us to apply the paint!
