A nice feature of the GlaStar is that the wings fold, and the horizontal stabilizer and elevator are removable. Thus it fits in a hangar with a Cessna 150 just fine

.

You know you are getting fairly close to finishing when the top deck (roof) is fastened in place with fiberglass.

The top deck and windshield were fitted. In January during one of our rare cold snaps. The hangar doors were kept closed and an incandescent lamp turned on to help the epoxy/fiberglass cure. It made for an interesting photographic effect.
