Build Diary 11-March-06

Fitted spinner today.

Making templates for the spinner. The cut-out's must not be too close.
Some builders use various methods to make the blades twist. I looked at production aircraft spinners to plan the gaps around the spinner and blade.

I taped the templates to the backplate and fitted the spinner.
I was then able to draw on the position of the blade.
