Arguably the most difficult part of the entire RV-12 build, the fiberglass lay-up around the canopy is unlike the other parts of the RV. Instead of manhandling metal into submission, this careful procedure requires concentration and patience.
After completing the right side of this section on Tuesday, we finished the left side and center lay-ups.
A camera crew from the Port of Portland came out to photograph us while we were working.
Another item of interest are the wingtip light fairings that were permanently adhered to the wingtip with Proseal and rivets.
Engine and avionics soon! More next week.
