Urupema Moulds

After a summer with some great flying the weather has now definitely turned autumn, which means time to head back to the workshop. Georg has started work on the smaller moulds for the Urupema project. We need moulds for the canopy, rudder, wheel encasing and of course the fuselage. Work on the first three is well advanced, and Georg has also started on the wing joiner and ballast pockets (last picture). Georg and I will be doing the mould for the fuselage in January. In the next few weeks we also expect to start work on the wings and elevator, which we will be doing in our usual styro core with carbon, abachi, glass and then spray painted. Georg has chosen an extremely thin wing profile….an interesting experiment. It should be quite a fast plane :-).
