first wing panel

Completed the first wing panel today. It's one of the two on the starboard side.

I built it using the cap strip built in place rib method. Very even and light but needs to be handled with care to prevent crushing ribs...

The wing tip was laminated using three layers of 1/16 balsa strips. After building the other three remaining panels, I will then build the struts and line everything up. Then the landing gear and cowling...more to come!!

Gerry.
