This morning I finally got around to getting over to the storage unit to put the bird in its new cage for awhile: a 10’x20′ storage unit.
One last trailer shot before I unloaded the fuselage. I have to say I’m loving the canopy. The fit and geometry is still spot on and it’s simply a treat to open & close the canopy…. and moreover to have a canopy mounted to open & close!!
Since the front rollup doorframe of the storage unit is a few inches narrower than the CS spar width I had to do some angling machinations to get the fuselage into the unit, but it still went in without too much effort.
Having not seen my nose or canopy with the bird in the grazing position, I wanted to get a wide angle grazing shot.
And a closer grazing shot….
And finally a grazing shot with the canopy open.
I have to say it’s a relief to have the fuselage safely down in NC without any incident. Sadly, from here on out over the next month or so my build postings will be fewer and farther apart until I’m relocated down here in NC.
