Charlie Brown's F-32 Building In Washington State

Charlie Brown is making good progress with his F-32AX in Kennewick, Washington.

Float form frames set up - a very neat job

Laying in the foam - fore and aft foam strips were used, as these were already in hand for a larger design, which was not built. The
foam was also thicker which makes it stiff enough to lay fore and aft, but there is a lot more edge gluing as can be seen.

Vacuum bagging - the multiple flats formed by fore and aft foam strips can be seen here quite clearly.
These will need to be sanded out on the exterior side which is more work, and can be avoided with
the preferred vertical foam stripping method.
