How did you fuss the plans into the right scale when printing on a plotter?
The wife and I were boggling at the attention to detail in what lay under the pieces as much as the craftsmanship itself.
And I concur - workspace is entirely too clean. Good grief man, if you're going to drink coffee have the decency to put a ring on the paper where the cup set down!
A few questions and comments:
1) Awesome job on shaping the gussets! I'll bet it will really make the covering look fantastic!
2) On the inside bends for the front of the elevator, did you anneal the aluminum? The curves on the inside going back to the spar for them are excellent, but the tubing looks a bit thin on the curves. Might be the pictures, though.
The reason I ask is that I'm just curious! It's a-okay either way and I was wondering if that's annealing or some technique you used for bending.
3) Any chance of coming to the States when it's done? My poor Nieuport 11 is facing the daunting challenge of DVII's and DR1's!
And last, thanks for sharing your baby with us!
