Just want to share a milestone with you fellow-builders: on Friday last week, the wings and tailfeathers left their home for the paintshop!
The shop can only receive the wings and tailfeathers for now, but that's ok since we still have few last tasks to do on the fuse. We'll do those tasks while the paintshop are painting the wings and feathers.
Here, we are carrying the wings out of the passage-way in the basement. It's been their home since Spring 2006...
Then into my hobby-room:
Through the door:
Up the stairs and into the garage:
Onto the trailer:
The only thing I had to carry on the trailer was the HS. The rest of the feathers, flaps and ailerons fitted nicely in the truck
And finally on the road we went:
As you can see, it was pretty thight space at some places, but we didn't make a scratch on those beautiful QB-wings!
Neither did I get into an accident during the 30 min drive to the paintshop.
Now, all the pieces are safely with the shop. Phew!
