The wings were built using Dave Brown pushrods as a wing jig. The LE was sheeted top and bottom, as well as the top of the center area. In this photo, you can see I have installed E-Flite electric retracts in the wing. The servo is mounted on a removable plate. The paper tube is Estes BT-5 serving as a conduit for the retracts and aileron leads.

On the right wing you can see a faint outline where the wheel wells will go. They are made by boiling 1/16" sheet for about 5 minutes, then wrapping around a 2" rattle paint can and allowed to dry overnight. They are trimmed to length, then glued into the top sheet.
