Finally its back on the ground again, just got a few spots to fibre glass on the inside of the duct and then i can move onto the mechanical side for now and get the fan assembly fitted. The rudders are now fitted and pivoting smoothly, wooo hooo the first mechanical section of my craft and it works hehe.

I have now fibre glassed the rear duct panels with two layers of glass on the inside seams and one layer on the outside seams. I have also cut the hole in the duct where the splitter plate will go. The splitter plate is currently still left off cause i have to dream up some idea for the air diverter panels

Wooo hoo i got my duct and its a sexy looking beast hehehe.
After talking to my duct supplier i found out that the duct has reinforcement through it and that cutting the duct prior to adding the splitter plate is ok, so i did :-) and now its sitting down in place. Just playing with some ideas now on how to mount it. I have a few thoughts on what to do but for now i think i'll wait till Monday cause my supplier is coming down this way and is going to call in so i will drain him of 4 million questions then hehe.
Duct Area 2View the Trike buildThe rear panel that I'm going with is not what the superwedge usually has and like i said earlier it's cause i have to allow for the full sized rudders, so what i'm making here is a flat panel that is supported by several legs that i have glued in…
This is the area where i'm going to fit a 950mm duct and i've just realised by looking at this picture that i didn't allow for the extension in the width of the craft when i cut out those rear corner decks, oh well i will incorporate those extensions into the rear panel when i make it. Just waiting on a duct so i can size things up and continue being productive :-)
