    Now that you have it slick, sand the pad area with 400 to make it faster.....

    Well,put it on the scales today.Before tear down, completely empty I had 192.2 at the bow eye,and 358.5 at the rear eyes for a total of 550.7 Today I'm at 183.4 bow and 326.5 stern for 509.9 total a loss of 40.8 pounds 8.8 on the front and 32.0 rear. Just for the heck of it I'm going to do an aircraft weight and balance and find out how much the actual balance line has moved.I suspect foreword a few inches.

    That's great!
    Lighter, Stronger, maybe a slight change in your trim setting at warp speeds?

    Thanks James! Hope your moving along well on your project. I like moving "fixed weight" forword on the Vikings. You can always get enough air to fly the front. Getting that pad to get on top at the rear is the key. Find the right balance,and well! Hang On!!! This sites got a nice string of VKings going right now.Looking forword to seeing them finished.
