Spreading my wings

Thanks Phillip. Not my idea, just something I copied from other builds.

I glued the three sections of the top wing together. Per the plan, I added the proper amount of dihedral by propping the wing tips up 3/4". When I built the two top wing panels and the two bottom wing panels I tilted the top of the root rib of each panel towards the wing tip by 3 degrees in anticipation of adding dihedral. With the exception of final sanding and covering, this pretty much finishes the wing construction.
