Sanded out the center section this evening. Installed 1/8"x1/2" strips of ply where the struts will attach with blind nuts and clamps so the upper wing can be removed if needed. Nice wing area, 520 sq. in. and 79 sq. in. on the tail surface. Plans say 25 oz weight. I am figuring even if I go 40 oz. wing loading will only be 11.1 oz /sq ft. I hope I am way under that though. My Super Stearman weighs in at 43 oz @ 36" span / 365 sq in (17 oz sq/ft) and fly's great, fast, but great.
