Been working on the Super Sabre Memorial Exhibit (SSME) yesterday and today. Some years ago a Super Sabre Quilt was created and auctioned off at one of the Super Sabre reunions. It has been donated to the SSME and yesterday Mike and I hung it on the wall (photo above also).
We are working on the first skin repair for the Cutlass wing. Rather than make 3/8 thick skin we shimmed up the edges and are applying a reinforced .050 skin. PVC shim around the opening.
Skin in place, not yet attached.
On Saturday primed half of the ailavator to see how it looks. Not too bad.
Work continues on the Corsair’s aft wing strut. Compound curves require a lot of planning.
Dave continues to work on the trim tabs for the Corsair.
