Fillng some Standard L between Nose Skin and Wing Tip Skin

A custom nose rib means I get to make custom wing tips. If you look closely at the Cruzer prototype you'll notice it has all metal wing tips. I'm trying to fit a strip of L with lots of notches around the nose skin.

>i got it at lowe's i had some from another project and it worked really good.   it's self etching but it is really expensive  one rattle can does not go very far.  I am going to paint it myself but it will be a two part epoxy, this was just simpler to use.

Welcome. The pictures of your build are impressive.

Hi Tim:  

Thanks for the friend request.  Am really impressed with your better than factory build.  What a passion you have for detail.

Nothing final on the nose section yet for the wing.  As I get closer to cutting metal my plans become more moderate.  The Sportsman cuff profile will be close to what I go with.  I have built the ribs and have the metal for the spars and expect to be well into the wings by late summer. Too many other, non airplane issues to deal with. The build is as much therapy as anything else at this stage.

I am very pleased with accounts by other builders who have ditched the slats and went with a more conventional wing with vg's. The experimental aspect within reason is providing myself a lot of satisfaction. Other builders such as Armand Lambert, Mark Maltais and Chumphol Surinavin have been an inspiration for me to mention only three.

Cheers       Brian

Hi, Timothy! Thanks for the friend request. I started my 750 building the rudder and tail kits, but am now scratch building the rest. Huge learning curve for me!

Hi there. Nice to know there are a couple of zenith guy nearby, and plans builders to boot!! Can't wait to get started.

Hi Tim, this 750 mounted a 6 banger Alfa Romeo engine converted for air...130 Hp. The owner produces plastic components and made this cowling himself. His first test taxi & rolls he is preforming very long T/O runs...maybe a W&B issue to smooth out. Keep in touch.
