I don't like to interject into Scruffys thread but it might help for any bipe. After the bottom wing is attached, I stick a straight pin in the centre of the leading and trailing edge of of both wings. Then while the glue for the upper wing is still soft, measure the distance from the leading edges of both wings, say 7 ins., Measure the distance of the trailing edges, and they should also be 7 ins. As long as the distances are the same, your good to go. There are other methods but this is what I do. Hope this helps
Forgot to mention, with staggered wings, prop the back of the fuse up on the table so the pins on the bottom wing measure the same distance from the table.
