    Diy Gull Wingreflector

    This idea has been going round in my head for a while. After franspan's thread yesterday & chatting with kb & ROCKER I thought I'd do a photo blogg of the prototype.

    I couldn't find my tin of polystyrene cement so I used white silicon sealer instead. Not ideal but it's a ptototype.

    This is the tricky bit. Drill down beyween the 2 halves of the reflector very carefully. When I did this it split so I drilled & screwed the 2 halves together. This would not have happened if I had used the correct glue & left it overnight to cure. Still it's only a prototype ...........
