  1. Ok, that makes sense. I was worried that nicking the foam core at the leading edge would be a big no no. Thanks Kent!
  2. I'm going to ask what is probably a simple question to any of the builders out there but I'm stumped. I have my wing section hot wired and prepped for glassing, but there's one area that concerns me. I know you're supposed to scissor trim the glass that overhangs after you've wet it out and then knife trim flush to the foam part way through the cure. I also know that you're supposed to put duct tape halfway down the leading edge so you don't get slurry or epoxy on the top portion to be covered later. What I don't understand is how you trim up that leading edge. I'm assuming you knife trim part way through the cure so the weight of the hanging fiberglass holds the layup in place. But when you knife trim, how do you keep from cutting into the foam core?

    I think I may have mistaken a Republic Seabee for the Skigull. Sorry about the false hope!

    I was watching the Ultralight camera. Looked like it was landing in the background on 27. Saw a very similar color scheme/design, but it's possible it wasn't actually the SkiGull

    I think I just saw the SkiGull land at Oshkosh on one of the webcams. Nice!

    Anybody know what's happening with Rutan's Skigull? Since it started flight testing three years ago I can only imagine they found some massive problems that are either taking a long time to fix or aren't worth fixing. I'd be interested to know which
  9. Saw this one pop up on the Pilots of America forum. A gentleman that has terminal cancer donated his project to an EAA chapter in Georgia. Here's his description. Not much to go on but if someone's interested I'm sure I can get the contact info
  10. Very unique! Looks like a good starting place for a sim cockpit. I sure wouldn't want to be in the air in it!
  11. I remember seeing this one at Rough River. Gorgeous airplane!
  12. Tempest is another really good search option for Craigslist https://www.searchtempest.com/
  13. Worth half the asking price? Maybe even less?

  15. Man, that one looks like a great place to start a project!
