thank you very much vor your email and the valuable information.
Please find in the attachment a cross section view from the fuselage that show which angle I choice for conturing. The angle in the Q1 drawings show up a 30°, as it also be captured, so I did it in the same way. The pictures from my past email deceive a bit, after some of the experts asked me about it, I did made a test piece and measured that unit again, it fits. But the countering area need some additional sanding to fit the requirements.
Thanks for the tip with the main wing and the fuselage. I think before I will shape the fuselage, to build at first the main wing. When these are available, then to form the fuselage. Or I will make a matching molded piece of the main wing from this area, we'll see. If necessary, it would be possible to insert a further struts in this area to support the fuselage wall? Sufficient space would be available in the segment.
In the case of resin, I do not use MGS-335. My choice is HEXION MGS L385 and H 386 (aero approved), but that need a subsequent tempering of all parts, what is already schedule. Please find in the attachment a data sheet. My buddy has a paint booth with integrated heating that allows a temperature of 65°. Do you have a source I can refer to that does not confirm fuel resistance of the resin mentioned? I would be very interested in such a source. Thank you very much.
The wing foam that I chose is come from the the same supplier like the LongEz and Cozy guys here in Europe use, so it should be work for the Quickie too. But I will double check it too.
