wing finished

the bricks didnt damage the correx over the spar, as the weight is distributed over a large area, i guess

but I did get some "warpage" near the center, almost looks like the contact cement got warm while curing, I probly didnt wait long enough before sitting the "jeds" down on it

third photo is thru the open end of the wing tip before I closed it.......semi-symmetrical shape

I had cut a wing profile shape into the fuzz before I folded it, but I removed too much material and I had guessed at the profile totally wrong,
so I patched a new piece on both sides and then trimmed it to match the exact profile

another place for me to add "notations" on the drawing
