You will notice that I use a plastic screw to attach the wing at the back. I fit it where it goes drill a hole through everything. Both the wing and mounting block. I remove the wing slightly enlarge the mounting block hole. I use a metal screw 6-32 and a washer to pull a blind nut into place for screwing the wing bolt into.

The 2 wood blocks are 3/8' x3/4' x3/4" and are used to hold the landing gear in place.
Same thing different angle.
I cut and glue plywood for mounting wheels shown later, and glue a magnet for holding battery cover in place
I use tongue depressor over rear wing edge. Popsicle sticks for mounting screws for servos glued to the wing.
First a 1/4" block of plywood glued to the wing with Popsicle sticks to hold the wing on, and tongue depressor to reinforce the rear section.
I put 45 degree bends into the aileron wire. These can be bent to greater or lesser angles to make adjustments to the aileron trim.
