« Part 3: Wings Part 4 of Pietenpol Air Camper series Part 5: Empannage »

Once the wing panels were framed up, I went ahead and framed the center section since the construction was similar to the wing. Many people install an auxiliary fuel cell in the center section… I will be using mine for storage.

Do you construct your own fuel tank or is this something that must be purchased? I would think it wouldn’t be too hard to weld up a tank, but I guess designing the baffles might be a bit tricky.

Yes, I plan to weld my own, as most of us do. No baffles… just a plain ol fuel cell.
