Tank attach brackets

Category: Fuel tanks — Steffen @ 20:34 — Hours: 1

I worked a little bit on the tank attach brackets tonight. They are made out of some 2×2½” alu angle. First I cut them to lenght, then I traced the rib shape from one of the prefabricated reinforcement plates.

After that I trimmed them roughly with my hacksaw.

Then I drew the fuselage attach flanges according to the plans…

Finally I trimmed those flanges as well, I will finetrim them on our belt-sander at work tomorrow.
