Have started skinning one of the wings,and the rear of the fuse.
All this work is done with news print and thinned PVA glue.
The first two sections are in this post.
The first layer follows the line of where a spar would be.This is only a strip section done on the top and bottom.
The second layer follows around the similar line as the wing out line,again top and bottom.
It is important to try and cut matching sets for both top and bottom and both wings.
We want both wings to finish at approx.the same weight.
This is now set up to dry.Stand the wing on its leading edge until dry..
Pic show all this...Next will be the final sections.
