Nice job. There's a kind of satisfaction you only get when you scratch build a model. Good luck with the maiden!

Well done.
One detail.
Think about how the g-forces affect a spar configuration... all the strength needs to be inboard and less as you move further out.
You really don't need spar webs in the outer 33% of a wing panel.

I omit those webs... not so much for weight reasons but rather, they do no good so why apply the effort?

Good on you sir! There's something particularly satisfying about seeing a scratchbuilt fly isn't there?
