Ordered enough fiberglass cloth to ensure stock for the last and largest subassembly. There’s enough carbon already on hand that should suffice for stiffening the larger surfaces (by the way, when fabricating, curved surfaces in composite or metal are much stiffer than flat). Expect a lot of progress over the next couple weeks, and after endless sanding, it’s on to paint!

In other news, Lulu is running a 30%-off sale through 24 Oct, code “OCTHIRTY”, book links: coil-bound and regular-bound. Lulu doesn’t notify authors when they have these promotions but I try to pass them on when I see it.
