Start of the next project….Embraer 400 Urupema

Although I still have enough work on my JS3 and AvantiHawk to keep me busy for a while (and there’s a Moswey III waiting to be finished as well), work has started on the next project. The same team that built the JS3 has decided to have a go at a 1:3.5 scale version of the Embraer 400 Urupema. It’s a Brazilian glider that was designed in the mid-1960s and that maidened in 1968. We got hold of some (very) rudimentary plans. Our shaper, Richie, has started work on the fuselage plug, using the rudder that Georg designed and that Georg and I cut a few weeks ago. We’re not a in a hurry, and it will take a while still until we can start work on the moulds, but it’s exciting to see the new project taking shape!
