DG build

I started  shapeing the foam for this six months ago and  now have decided to restart it. I plan to finsh the fuz this week next week at the latest. I am  then  going to make the wings , canopy and tail as a kit and save it just in case I move house and run out of time  then build it later.I was going to make it a DG 100 but may make it a DG 200 or 202 17 m

Hi There,
Following your build thread with interest, its comming along nicely well done, just one question I cant see if you have installed a sheer web between the wing spars and how are you going to fit the joiner tubes?
cheers
Mike
