Week 9  This week frames 43 to 46 and stringers

The bits we received

And what we did with them

Weeks 9 & 10 seem to come in the wrong order.  To me it makes sense to work from mid-ship aft, rather then this jump to the stern and then have a gap to fill in.  Please look at week 10 where I'll be assembling the parts from both issues 9 & 10.

Hot tip of the week

Part 47 is the rudder servo mounting.  If you look closely you will see that one side of the U is wider than the other.  However the instructions don't tell you which way round to put it.  It probably won't make any difference which way round it goes, as there is always some adjustment on the rudder linkages.  However, to be on the safe side I'm not going to fit it until I have got the rudders and rudder servo.  It should be easy to fit at a later date.

You can get a stronger glue join if you sand the charred edges of the laser cut parts.  Thanks to Tiger for that tip
