The definitive version of the indoor A-frame pusher.

The L-4 project tacked together for a "bones shot". The structure you see weighs 16 grams. I'm estimating 28 grams, covered and painted, less rubber.

I get my 21st Century tool set up and the first thing I build is a design from the 19th Century. Go figure!

Taking a little break to prepare something for a 4th of July flying session. No, it's not a model oil rig.

Now to continue with attaching the nose. The whole nose assembly glues to the front of the fuselage. The removable section is right behind the nose block. the right bank of cylinder heads come off with the front section, the left bank is staggered to the rear and stays with the fixed section.

Back where we were when the disaster occured. This version is 2 grams heavier than my first try, but it can be handled with impunity.

I find that miniture Scunci hair clips make good, low crush strength, clamps for delicate work.

The rest of the stringers are 8 pound balsa.

The formers are still contest grade stuff, 1/32" aft of the C.G., 1/20" forward, and 1/16" for the nose former.

OK. Here we go again. After the "crushing failure" of my first attempt at a super light fuselage I searched out a specific piece of balsa to make my strip wood for the keels and the stringers at the edges of the fuselage. Back in the day, when a bill of materiels called out for a compnent to be made of "rock hard balsa" this is the stuff they were talking about.

The OH $%!# moment. I was sanding it prior to coverning. I tried to build it too light. I've started on a new fuselage with the same weight formers, but 8 to 10 pound wood for the stringers. It may still come out under 20 grams although I'll be happy if it's under 30. Luckily, I've done it once so the next one will be quicker.
