The origins of Ply/Epoxy construction

Post by Darren » Tue Mar 04, 2014 9:03 am

Hi Guys,

stumbled across this today, which reminded me about the origin of epoxy (or what I think the origin was). It was developed for aircraft manufacture I believe.

This site has a team of people re-building a never flown aircraft that was designed by Bugatti before the war, but was never completed. Despite never making into the air, it produced a number of patents that are still in use today.

Reminds me how amazing wood/epoxy is. Light, strong, versatile.

Cheers

Darren
