The bending
Catégorie: Fuselage : Longeron

Today I did the bends in the longerons. first the shallow bend, on the picture there is still some bending to do to look like the remplate.

A picture to show how it is done, the angle is put in in vise and then some pre-load is manually put on the angle, this preload is the applied permanently with the hammer. Progress has to be quite slow (an inch at at time).

Then the two pieces are match drilled to the upper side, the forward bent and twist is made.

Some parts have to be trimmed away at the aft end.

I then use my botched rear fuselage to check all the parts, looks good so far.
