All Tacked UP and Ready to Weld

Well we finally made it. We got the main fuselage all lined up and ready for welding. We finished tacking this Saturday. I’m hoping we can get the welder up here one night this week to weld her tight so we can successfully move the frame back to Dave’s shop, throw her on the rotisserie and complete all the clusters. The Cartesian kit was great, we had to massage it a little 1/8th of an inch here an 1/8th there to get the side trusses to line up and tighten up correctly.

It is starting to get exciting again, we now have a fuselage only 90% to go… 🙂
