Could be a bit of a sod if you find you need to change anything when you build the first wing! ;)

Well i have started the wing today.
so far all the ribs i pre-cut have fitted perfectly :P
i had to roll the leading edge slightly so it would match the curve of the ribs for gluing.



when my lite ply turns up i can make thee dihedral braces and run the servo wires ready for the top sheeting to go on.

well today i made the dihedral braces and glued the two wing halves together.



then i sheeted the top of the wing with some 3mm Depron.



need to do the tips and ailerons next and then it can be covered and painted.
that just leaves battery box, u/c, final fuselage sheeting and the motor/esc.
nearly done ready for crashing.
:P

Very nice Tony. How are the DD and the high wing job coming along ? BTW Tony did you get a big cardboard box yet? It can make a spray booth. If it is big/deep enough it will contain 99% Of the spray
