Ekranoplan, slow but steady progress


I think I have all the wood cutting done. Here is the tail spar, the giant tail fin that is typical for the ekranoplans, one of the main wings (the other is being glued on at the moment), a triangular piece (which is not typical but which will be attached below the spar, maybe with some trimming) and the main wing tips. The vertical stabilizer didn't make it into the photo. Still haven't decided on a lug or acquired the sticker stock for papering the balsa.
