Ya, I'm kinda surprised at how quick this is going together. There's still lots to be done, but most of the engineering challenges have been met.

All of the above. LOL

Besides that I looked at the "3 View" and noticed that the strut mount was one rib beyond the innermost aileron rib. I checked the plans for the strut mount, and cut my ailerons accordingly.

Today, I worked on a % of the final 90%. The second wing is framed, but lacks the sheer webs and ailerons.

I clamped the wings on, and set the tail in place. I just had to get an idea of how the finished model will look.

I spend a lot of time putting them together and taking them apart. I like to see how far I've gotten, each morning.

Looks nice, Tom.
