Week 73 This week we get the carb supports and foot rests
The bits we received
And what we did with them
I fitted the foot slides first. No great problems, but I needed to move the holes on one side to get then square. A few minutes work with a round file did the trick
The carb supports are painted the same colour as the fire wall.
Finally, glue them in position with Araldite.
I also decided to glue the carb in place while the fire wall was loose. It looked easier to clamp in place now than it would be after the fire wall had been glued to the fuselage.
Hot tip of the week
I find that 24 hr Araldite is the best choice of glue for gluing the castings to wood.
