The laminated wing fixing plate was completed today and turned out as it should. It is very tough and when fixed will not pull out. Probably the most important job is fixing the boom to the pod. It has to be exactly positioned otherwise the glider will not fly as designed. This a difficult job as I was trying to position with zero tolerance. In the end I got as close as I could. I think it's a good job. I did remember to place the shrink wrap on the boom. I did remove all the paint on the boom as it was flaking and would look a mess. I intend to paint the boom and pod. The pod orange and boom black. I will have to work around the shrink wrap. I cut two pieces of wood at 55m as the drawing and placed under the tail plane. I is difficult to hold in position without any stress on the parts. The glued pod and boom will be strapped down over night and probably for 24 hours. I have to finish the pod with some filling required and then paint. This will take several days.
