So....when I built my 71" Slick, there was a problem with the "T" nut in the right wing, and I had to take it out and replace biggy, except that the barbs on the "T" nut were bent over on the plywood backing inside the wing, and by the time I was able to get it out, the wing root rib had cracked as the plywood broke loose..Arghhhh!! I installed a new "T" nut, and epoxied the plywood back in, and CA'd the root rib, and while it felt very solid, I was never really comfortable enough with it to really wring the plane out hard, So....during the Black Friday sale, I ordered a new wing, and just received it today....

Now the reason I am posting this, is as we all know 3DHS does a great job of packing stuff, and as long at UPS doesn't let their pet gorillas get a hold of things, it gets here in good shape, and this one did....but... I had just run out of one foot wide small bubble wrap recently, and I was going to have to go buy some.....Nope!! I now have about 30' of bubble wrap that was wrapped around that wing.....

So to the Noll, and Wade.....Thanks for the fast shipping....and the bubble wrap!!!
