Cockpit Roof (5)

Making the side stringer lie neatly along the edge of the new window is simple enough but the front 300mm or so has to angle inwards more sharply. In addition the back of the roof has to be high enough to clear the hand rails but I want the front edge lower and more elegant so the side stringers have to taper as well as bend.

Trying out the side stringer

In these photos the side stringer isn’t fitted it’s just resting in place while I check it. Seems about right, but I need to adjust the window a little to open/close nicely.

Seems about right
