Skinning the craft

This is a picture of the rear of the craft just as things started going together, notice the stand built for this process, levelled but I learned later, should have been stronger.

View from the front notice the reinforcements on the ribs.

A good look at R-1 and R-2

This would be R-3

This is R-4, notice the short extensions of the 3/4 by 3/4 pieces, That is where the seat goes later.

Here we have R-5

This is R-6, notice none of the center stringers carry on to R-7, only the corner ones do.

That is R-7, patiently awaiting me to get around to installing it.

This would again be R-7, notice the reinforcements for the rudder mounts and prop guard.

In this photo you can see the slight bow to R-1. I put a 2x4 in between the stand and the center
of R-1 and tied string between the outer edges of it and R-2 to form the bow when I glued in the stringers.
