Stabilizer trim wheel and pulley
Airbrake pulley installed, fitting cables
Fabricating brake stops for main wheel axles

Busy week for the Sopwith, trying to finish up a lot of small parts. The stabilizer pulley and the airbrake pulley need to be positioned then drilled and pinned in their final positions and then the cables will be fitted. Work continues on the pilots area, the opening has not been cut yet in the plywood skin, if all goes well that will be completed this week. The trim system gear plates are in the machine shop, hope to have those back in a couple of weeks, so we can sign off the trim system as being complete. The airbrake panels have been installed they will be covered next term by the dope/fabric class.
