If we start at 6am, that would give us about 12 hours. And if the temperature gets over 10c the epoxy might even go off! :-)

Did Paul pick up the I/c accessory kit as well? Otherwise we'll be assembling a glider... :shock:

Thin & thick CA, and a fair bit of epoxy needed by the look of it.

Here's a link to the manual for anyone who wants a 'heads-up' before tomorrow's marathon.

Paul nail gun required, how long can it take (2years) (6months) nail longerons to parts 1&2 nail parts 4,5 and 6 to one fuselage side ensure they are square (eyeball yeah thats good enough) nail fuselage sides together ensuring tail post is square. shrink film to fit using required heat from barbeque. This could get ugly.
