01/07/2005: Paws and Whiskers Moulds Completed
The Paws and Whiskers is the structure that sticks out in front of the main fuselage. For some reason they have ended up being called the Paws and Whiskers and this name has stuck. This is a tricky component to build as there is a large aerodynamic surface, and while it is not used to generate lift it is imperative that we know how it behaves. This means particular care has to be taken when aligning the whiskers to make sure that they are totally symmetric to each other.
The overall structure needs to be strong as the paws must be able to take wave impacts at high speeds.
