Default Composite Glider - Aftershock

Several years back a friend drew up a glider in CAD. We both drifted out of the hobby and it was forgotten. Well, I am back in, and want to make my own planes to fly.

So I dug the files out, and picked up some wing plugs we made for it. Now I am getting busy.

The plane was named the aftershock. It will have a 60" wing span. For slope flying. Fully molded composite glider.

This is it in Rhino...

Some things are already done, like we cut wing plugs with my cnc. So I will probably use those.

But I needed to cut and get started on the fuse plug.

So I set it up to cut each half of the plug and then glue them up. Once they were cut and glued, I soaked the mdf with epoxy and hit it with a heat gun (and repeat several times), this allows the mdf to soak up the epoxy to form a hard shell.

cut vertical tail molds, need to make a part to use to make sure fuse is sanded to match. Will probably have to go back and cut these as molds in order to get sharper corners, will see after sanding, waxing and pulling a part.
