    Built the crutch from 6x6mm spruce with cross members, hoping 6x6 will be ok. I added all
    of the bottom formers from the wing TE back. Next I'll add the tailwheel assembly.

    The crutch looks really good. Those permagrit blocks are so good. Everyone else watching this.... Get yourself some permagrits. Will you fpv this plane? What is the wing span?

    Permagrit blocks are really good, I also bought the 6mm spar slotter. The wingspan is just over 2m
    and I will definitely fpv it .

    Glued in the wing seat, removed the fuselage from the building board and added the top formers, 6x6mm
    stringers and the 6mm balsa spine. The fuselage feels solid so i'll hold off on adding any sheeting atm.

    a internal connection the rudder is external.

    Was up into the wee hours strip planking sections of the upper and lower fuselage. I could have just sheeted it but I wanted to have a go at strip planking.
