So in enlisted my buddy Mike Wagnon to help me invert it. While not particularly heavy, it would have been difficult for me to do myself, given its size.
Once inverted, I build a little saw horse cradle to support the nose so that it wouldn’t tip over while I crawled around inside.
So then it was back inside the fuselage for me (oh, my aching back), to repeat the process of ply – core – plies. Again, the most time consuming part of the joining process was constructing the foam core sections so that they nestled just perfectly into the joint valley.
