The wing is designed to be removeable and is supported by two pieces of music wire (along with the rigging) that pass through brass tubes. I put a bit of solder in the ends of the tubes to keep the wire from slipping into the wing then glued them into the precut holes in the two inboard ribs. This is followed by 1/16" balsa sheeting.
