Re: Q1 Fuselage comes up

David,
thank you very much for the detailed information. After you send the first mail I check the plans too. You are right, I did not place the glass on the firewall yet and will do it Right away.

Best regards

“I did not catch up that point yet.”

 

I’m not sure I understand your reply. To clarify my point: plans page 4-3 comes before plans chapter 7 so glassing the firewall should have been completed before fuselage assembly. The instruction to do so is not explicit, but implied by the last line of text on page 4-3.

I don’t think it will affect structural integrity to glass the firewall after fuselage assembly but it will only get more difficult to rectify this omission the farther you progress without doing so.

Eugen, aren’t you supposed to have 1 ply BID on each side of the firewall before fuselage assembly? See plans page 4-3.

Dear Q-list Group,

 

the Q1 fuselage assembly progress is stil on going, the last bulkhead 110 is on his place. So the next step will curve the outside of the fuselage to create the unique Q1 lines. Please find a link to my website, scroll down a liltle bit to reach the picture.

 

 

During the whole progress I learn tons of stuff about foam, glass, resin, squeegee, flox, wet / dry / flush micro, vacuum bags and where my fingers should do not touch if sealing is placed and use all times a hat and much more ……………..what a wonderful journey :-) 

 

Thank you guys that you kick me in that path :-) 

 

Best regards

 

Eugen
