      I am about to start making my first set of vacuum bagged wings. I have some experience of vacuum bagging, and I am following Mark Drela’s Supra plans as to structure, although the plane I’m making is a bit larger than Supra. I am intending to make a set of skins from carbon/kevlar cloth and straight kevlar cloth which I will fit to prepared foam cores. I haven’t been able to find much in the way of guidance so far, and I am looking for tips as to how to prefabricate the skins.  One question I don’t know the answer to is whether I should prepare the skins in the wing-beds so that they are ready-shaped before bagging. If you have anything to offer about painting that would be helpful as well.

      I am making a tow rope for aerotowing. I have no experience of aerotowing or fitting out the equipment, so if you have, perhaps you could give me some tips about e.g. length, fittings, etc.
