THE REPAIRS

Bad luck I have to repair the wings. DG-600 was hanging in a tree last week ;-(

- Did cut out the bad pieces with sharp knife and filled up sith epoxy mixed with balsa abrasives.  D-box filled up with balsa, sanded a slightly thinner than the surface and laminated with 2 x 50g/m² glasstissue



 - Waxed the carbon rod to model the filler, also reinforced with balsa abrasive dust.

- Top wing repaired , took 30 days to repair

 - Bottom wing repaired , took 30 days to repair

  - Wingtips repaired , took lang enough to repair

- Fuselage repair, carbon reinforced now




- Paint aerosols needed,... epoxy resin, glasstisue, polyglanz (polish), balsa, .....


- Finaly,.. Here we go,...   :-)
