Yeah I know you can print out your plans but it's faster for me to draw them.

Left wing without any internal ribs or carbon fiber rods, they'll installed later.
the dc-9-51 has some real short wings in relation to the fuselage

I allways try to buy a model of the plane I want to build you can really compare your scratch build to the model for referrence.

This photo shows the internal carbon fiber rods & aileron servo, All I then need to do is fold the wing together and bingo you've gotta wing . . . .or a waste of depron
