Pics later.

Ouch!

Sorry to hear that Tim.

Yea, those shucks are key at compressing the wings uniformly within the vacuum. It's always worse to find out the hard way but it certainly is educational.

I'm sure your TT4 will be as beautiful as your DB when done!

Thanks David. Like I've always said, there were a LOT of firsts in that DB including my first built plane, first paint job, first mold/fuselage and of course the servo tunnel debacle was one of them.

This is the new jig system I'm trying out. I just assembled a foam/balsa DB wing using the shucks and after putting it in this jig so I can hold it in place to get the incidence meter on it I found it was 0/0 all the way across so building in the shucks is still very acceptable but now I know with a certainty that I'm getting everything straight.
