'R0' dome build - 2.6 'Skin & squares'

Didn't have much free time last night, but wanted to try and glue one of the panels in place. With limited tools I couldn't clamp it in place to easily, so had to use a scrap piece of wood long enough to reach inside, the length of the dome and use my clamp to apply pressure to keep the panel in place whilst the PVA glue set.

It worked! These will have fibre glass resin applied around the edges etc for added strength from 'prodding' fingers lol.

This morning I've cut out two more rear panels & managed to get one grooved. Will get the other grooved lunchtime and can then glue both into place tonight.

........more updates on Monday.....
