Slathered on the second coat of varnish on my center section yesterday. Calling it complete for now. I opted for the aileron style flop with hardware store hinges. I had originally figured on using magnetic cabinet catches to latch the flop but O.Z. cautioned that it may affect the compass http://www.pietenpols.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=46651 so I scrapped that idea. Instead I went with the Sky Scout latch made with steel banding and a ground down screw as suggested by Terry Hand http://forums.matronics.com/viewtopic.php?t=16757252&highlight=flop+latch . I plan to build the tank next winter. I'm going to move on to wing assembly now because it requires glue worthy weather. For the record it weighs in a little shy of 16 pounds.

Beautiful work!

I must add, though, that credit for the banding clip idea comes from P.F. Beck and Don Harper of Barnwell, South Carolina. I would love to say I was smart enough to come up with simple solutions like that, but the credit goes to those two men. They were simply kind enough to share the idea with me, and I passed it on.
