Just a heads up.....

Drop by the Vacuum Infusion Demo at Oshkosh/AirVenture 2017.

 

In 2015, we built the fuselage for a 82% scale Vought F4U Corsair.

In 2016 we built two fuselages. One was for the Star-Lite and the other was the fuselage & strakes for the new single place canard design.

This year (2017) we will revisit the Corsair project. The fabrication/infusion of the wing structure for the Corsair will be our primary project. 

 

The lead on this demonstration is Russ Emanis. Russ spent 9 years working for Lockheed Martin overseeing composite processing on the F 22 program. The technique demonstrated will allow the production of high quality composite parts with a fiber-to-resin ratio superior to the much more expensive pre-preg/autoclave products. In adition, we will be accomplishing the results outside under a tent.

For those looking for the Vacuum Infusion demo:

We will be located across Knapp street (west) from the forums area.

 

I'd post a map but I don't see a way to do that.

Tuesday through Friday.

We spend most of Monday setting up and Friday is the "reveal" when we pull parts out of the molds.
