Wings Part II

Next steps were adding wingtips, and then figuring out how to mount engines.

After a great deal of planning, and with expert help, the engine mounts were designed and built from 1/8" ply and 5/8" square rails.

The engine mounts house the fuel tanks, and the engines are mounted on rail which ultimately is glued to wing spars. Landing gear mounts also transfer forces to spars, so hopefully any hard landings will be handled well.
