It may be slow going, but it's a thrill to see the fantastic work you're doing on it. Keep it coming Paul!

Thanks for your kind comments Bob and Mark. Should get a little more done on the Albatros this weekend.

Spent the last couple of days working on my computer as I managed to mess it up. Mostly back up to snuff just have to load up a few more programs. Much better installation this time around. :thumbsup

It's been a little while since my last update. Got busy the the other night and did some work on this little beast and finally tried out my jig for mounting and aligning the top wing.

Why be wordy, here are the pictures.















More to come...

Now it's time to show the jig in use. It already helped point out a problem, but I will let the photos show that.

























Hope you all like it!

I'm sure you know about lens distortion so make sure you're using your rulers to check that warp.

So you get the wings on, how you going to paint this?
I told you photobucket sucks...

Bob, the top wing is not glued on. That is the beauty of this jig. This was just a first test. I willpull it back out, fix the center frame, test again and paint before attaching the top wing (with the jig).

Also the curve in the pic was there, I know about the camera thing. :bgrin

That jig is a stroke of genius and well worth the effort to build! Brilliant man!
