Well.. I'm back.. next 3 nites off. So, I should get much of the Beaver framed.

The right wing panel was framed first. I elected to modify the provided 1/16 ply dihedral braces for less angle. I reduced the dihedral angle by half. I also deviated from the directions in two areas. I attached the ply dihedral braces while framing the panel, instead of adding them later. I also made an extra set of W-3 rib blanks to the dihedral break.

Ailerons were framed in using 1/8" for the wing TE and 3/16" for the ail LE. False ribs added at each ail end. Then the wing tip was added after removing from the board. Along with spar and TE extensions on the tip plate.

Now to the other side, the add the center section.
