Now it’s time to start down the long road of reinforcing tapes. I started with the round doilies for the inspection rings. I found a good deal on some of these fancy pinking shears:
Danny stopped by and tried them out, and liked them so much that he cut out all of the doilies for me. Next I started on the lengthwise tapes.
While the fuselage tapes were drying I started on the landing gear leg.
The 1-inch tapes that I’m using on the stringers are very hard to keep straight. The stringers aren’t straight though, so using wider tapes might be counterproductive.
