A Clean work Table
Wing Plans and Pieces, the Elio X Build is a little different then the Elio as the stab set, rudder, and wing tip panels are larger. In case your following alongthe Elio X Build is not quite as described in the elio.html file and the tip panel build can be found here
Watch your drawings especially for the wings , I like to mark the rib location on the bottom spars and some of the filler sheeting, that way one wing is like the other. Also pre – cutting to length of the lower spar will define the length of the inboard panels as well.
Some lines are also not straight on plans , thus setting the spar against a 48 Inch straight level is helpful
And some more pictures, lots of detail here. Looking really good , a little hiccup with the LE I supplied the wrong LE, but with a little forethought a strip of spruce on the underside was all that was needed.
Fuselage Former and Tri stock Location
Note these dimensions are approximate, and for verification purposes and location of tri stock. The Fuselage sides are marked, and there are x’s next to the line which indicate the location of the former and nose block
Sunday Sept 03 The build continues, adding root rib, trimming lower sheeting and making room for spoilers.
Sept 6 Tip Panels
Some more tip panel details, they can be joined to the inner panels at this point but if the inner panels still are not configured for join to fuselage then it’s easier with panels then with a complete wing
Great Build , I look forward to the colors and of course 1st run up the Line
Sept 23 Fuselage Assy Continues
Oct 02 More details, wing root and fuselage, coming together
