Fuselage Construction

A very light wing that is designed to easily handle the flight loads imposed upon it

Sectioned fuselage showing frames, stringers and skin all made of aluminium

Typical Warren Truss Fuselage Construction which is incredibly light, strong and rigid.

Celerity and Marathon fuselage frames are simply glued together in a table-top jig that anyone can make, quickly and easily

Construction of the fuselage started by building a flat level work table 17 feet long x 4 feet wide.

Some fuselage parts arrived damaged, so the replacements come in a huge (and beautifully-constructed!) crate

Larger wooden longerons (longitudinal strengthening members) can be seen at the one o'clock and three o'clock positions on this fuselage section.

In building the halt-shell, the bulkheads and internal members of the fuselage are first inserted in the divisions and recesses of the mould.
