Flaps are the order of the day! Built both sides as it's easier to get them right that way. Added 50 pounds of weights to keep them flat while drying. But, they look good on the wing.

We sold all of Ray's RC stuff getting it out of his way except for 2 planes, made him some nice cash, and profited $130 for the club. So we call it a successful venture. Thanks to all who made purchases.

His wife was sick for 5 years, then passed. Then lightening struck his house and badly damaged it. He's selling his hobby stuff.

Got the top leading edge sheeted. Takes a while to do the whole top side since I have to use Yellow Carpenter's glue and allow dry time. I need more clamps! Clamps get weak over time and fall apart.

Been painting my house, so, no work on the Porter till now. The wing half is pretty big, so I have just put the pieces in place without glue to begin with to see how it was all going to fit together. Looked OK so I started gluing as I went. I want to make sure it's as straight as possible before sheeting.
