Some guys wanted to see some "samples" of the BC.....

I don't blame them , I wanted to see some to , but never got the chance....( Bought'em anyway )

Anywho, Here ya go....

The prints were taken to where I work , and blown up to 24 x 36....( from 11 x 17 )
The owner, where I work is also a pilot , so "FREEBIE"....No charge......cool

also in the prints , is the front leading edge "Slats" ....Gives you some idea of how they work....
AGAIN, something that I would have like to "peek" at before I bought the plans.....

I made extra copies of the "Rib" section ( full size )  That way I can glue it right to my Rib Jig....

Getting information about this stuff was like "pulling Teeth".....Not ANYMORE .....If "YOU" want to know something
Just ask....

Foot note :  I'm glad I have two sets of plans....The small set will be tucked away in a safe place , I'll use the big ones....
If anything happens to any print , I have my small prints to make another copy of it....

I was showing this to somebody....it points out the wood ( not supplied in the ACS , "Wing wood kit" )

it's the Pine that brings the Spar to the same level as the Ribs....

Questions For Mike

Mike,
I'm new to the BC.  My questions are what is the wing skinned with?  What is the fuse skinned with?  Is the fuse framing wood also?  I'm a little tenative when it comes to building a plane out of all wood.  I'd really like to know a little more about what the various parts are constructed of.

Hi Allen,
            The Fuselage is Chromoly....and covered with Dacron  ( Stitts Process )
The wings are also covered with Dacron...
 
  At the Buttercup site , look in the photo section ( construction photos )

If you look at the prints ( above ) you can see the materials...

Great pictures.  Can't wait to see mine when the drawings get here.  I guess you're not thinking about the "bulged" doors since Jazz will give you all the space you want in the cockpit, huh?

I didn't hear about the "Bulged" doors.... I'll be leaving mine stock.... In fact, I plan on leaving alot stock...

If I build another one... I'd know what I want different.... Right now , why fix something that might work fine...

"Jaz"  ( one "Z" )  doesn't need much room , and has "Little" weight penalty...

She LOVES to go flying.... She'll jump in the plane and wait for me...
