Wing midsection prep for bisection

A bit more progress on the Wings.
The center or midsection of the wing has to be prepared to cut it into two right in the middle
to make two sections that will plug together.
So the wing has to be esentially covering ready through the entire middle section and then
it is cut into two halves on a radial arm saw.
This will mean cutting all of the structure including the joiner tubes.
Also in the middle section the TE is prepped for where the mounting bolts are installed
very near the TE a little bit off the center line.
Also you see the locating holes at the LE for the CF pins.
These go into the ply reinforced ribs on eithes side of the center.
I hope to be cutting the wings in two in a couple of days.
Then the tips will be joined onto their respective half of middlesection.
Doing the joined wing this way allows for quicker build and also the two
sections will exactly mate as they were built as one and then cut down the middle so both sides will match.
