They want to up the percentage on the Barracuda so our merry band of tin-bashers (or leading metal-conservators, as we were referred to yesterday) is going to take a look.
The wings and all of the control-surfaces on the "Applecore" were fabric-covered. At least you won't have fabric-'n'-dope to mess around with on the (all-metal) "Barra". It should be somewhat akin to K7 - but lots more of it to work on, though not so badly mangled.
I hope you show as much of this project's progress, when it comes on-stream, as you have with K7. "Pic of the Day" will be a whole new, different ball-game!
