The hull starts to take shape...
Cutting that elliptical hole through the hull for the thrust duct was fun!
But, at least we didn't have to build the duct from scratch.
Bottom's up!
Here, all the mechanical elements are laid out to see if everything will fit.
We decided to paint the bottom (at least
the part that would show) so we
wouldn't have to crawl under there later
once the craft was right-side-up.
This shows
the "landing
strip" in place.
 Six-inch
strips of
aluminum are
screwed on at
intervals for
added wear
protection.
"Hey Dad, what should I do next?"   (How about feeding the dog?)
Here, the
main hull is
almost
complete.

Note the
beginnings of
the thrust
duct over to
