Picture-reports of constructions/parts.
Many forget that the seat still has to be removable.


Parts 57 are there to strengthen the seat (part 56). Hole (part 58) is the place of the stick. Go see the book on figure 125. The seat rests on the sides on parts 35 and 20. Book figure 121. Transversal it is supported by parts 46, 48 and 54. Figure 122 and 124.*

You can clearly see the three transversal sticks that hold the seat. That fourth transversal stick (just behind the front of the seat) is mentioned in figure 124. It is connected to part 33 of figure 121.


Geert wanted to reinforce the middle support of the seat. He added a extra plywood part to secure part 54 to part 21 and 36. Figure 117, 121 and 124.


This is one of the reasons to make the seat removable.


The control system is placed under it. You see the hole that will be used to later place parts 181 and 163. Figure 139.


This is a detail of the plywood that covers the sides of the fuselage. The joint is not just a straight joint. It is a angled one to create the best binding between both plywood plates. I wanted to photograph the line. But it is not visible in this image size. So ... I drew a line. Hope it is all clear.


That joint runs at the back of the seat. Figure 134
