CD – Building The Fisher Avenger

Avenger Construction

Building The Fisher Avenger – by Kevin Rutland Kevin says:

“Building the Fisher Avenger was a lot of fun. I spent almost two years working in my tiny basement in the winter, and my old garage in the summer, to construct this wonderful flying machine. Neighbours driving by, and even the local police, would do a double take when they saw the Avenger airplane on my driveway.”The CD is a collection of all the photographs I took during the construction process, and shows the jigs, techniques and methods I used to assemble the various parts. I also have included articles I wrote about covering the wooden structure with dacron cloth, a cheaper low cost painting method and a way to construct a fiberglass cowling.If you are building a wood & fabric airplane you will probably find the CD helpful. If you are building a Fisher airplane then you will save yourself a lot of head scratching.”The CD can be ordered at
