On The Bench 196: Hal Bierman’s Spaceship One

We have a brief On The Bench update featuring more of Hal Bierman’s Spaceship One. We first looked at this a couple weeks ago.


I actually purchased a lathe for this project. So, technically, I’m losing money on this one. The nose and tail sections were turned from poplar. Still to come is the engine bell. The next step is major assembly / epoxy. From there I will begin to add the refinements, particularly the trailing edge of the wings and the connection of wings to fuselage.


The picture with the ruler puts this project into perspective.
