First Fitting of Top Planking and Undercarriage Retraction System G-RCSR

Much progress to report for G-RCSR, the tribute replica DH88 Comet for G-ACSR built in flying condition to de Havilland plans. After the last reported wing turn over, some of the top planking has been done leaving space for the undercarriage retract system to be fitted and trialled. The main mechanism requires many parts, all bespoke made to plan. The wing has been raised to a higher height by tractor lift onto a new table jig so that the full undercarriage can swing down and up again. As well the cockpit Perspex has arrived for trial fitting and the engines build is making steady progress.
