I have decided to complete the bottom wing first so that I can finalize the wing cut out on the fuse. Once this has been finalized and everything lines up I can start putting the fuse together.

I only managed to complete one half of the bottom wing in one evening. It took a lot longer than I expected but it came out nice and straight so I am chuffed about that. I have not added the sheeting to both sides of the wing half just yet. I am first going to complete the other half of the bottom wing and after joining the two halves I will complete the sheeting on both sides.

I was unable to get my hands on 3mm x 6mm Spruce sticks that the plans call for so I used 6mm x 6mm instead. Little extra weight, but extra strength as well so a trade off I can live with.
