Hi Mike I can hear the violins mate :lol: but seriously now you know what its like to work alone in the other room on your todd, mind you it can be quite good for the concentration especially whilst working on those extremely important but also magnificent air intakes.A sight to behold as you enter the room I might add. After all they are effectively the lungs of the machine and vitally important that you get them right :D A credit to you and Bill, Mike as I know it has been a long hard road to bring them back to being fit for purpose.

Novie, I used to work alone in that room too, could listen to ball chasing all day without a single moan from the rest of the team.

Top Job Gentlemen.
Very kind of you to say so, Novie. I seriously reckon that the intake represents about a third of the total amount of effort on the whole machine considering that it has about a zillion parts yet you can pick it up with one hand - oh, and that at least half of it has been in a crash.
Credit, though, must go to all on the team because every last one of us has had a hand in building the roughed out parts into a big chunk of boat. If I have a complaint it's that Mike insists on using rivets normally reserved for the Typhoon Eurofighter that cost more then buying the moon but in the long term that can't be a bad thing.

Not quite the case... we couldn't hear the ball chasing and you couldn't hear us moaning about it. And then we bought you some ear defenders with a radio inside so the sound of grown youths running hither and thither after a bag of wind was yours and yours alone. See how we look after you. :D

Wings were held on with shear ties and tension bolts-only rivets used on the wing structures were internal stringers and some skin panels :P

I had trouble with it the other week as did Bill , bloody thing. Good to see Helen in the workshop Mike ain't seen her in a while. All about team work and I think they are more or less rivet's in that cover Mike :lol: :lol:
