I assembled the main wing parts together. I didn't chose to keep them seperated for 2 reasons. 1: it was easier just to assemble them rather than keeping them in 2 parts. 2: it's much stronger and reliable to assemble them together.
I have added a centre rib that wll become part of the canopy construction. I am going to apply the same kind of construction as for the pod, opposed to using solid pieces of wood as suggested by the design.
I am in the process of filling the top of the pod with pieces of balsa wood in order to get enough support for the wing rest. Finally, I will cover the wing rest with 1mm balsa wood.
