Juan,
To mark the cut-outs to make the fuzz fit the wing, lay the fuzz on the wing. Then mark out at former F2. Cut this out about 10mm into the wing. Fit the wing and now mark out at F5. Cut this out....your wing should fit.....if not trim a little more.
Refer the pics.

con respecto al plywood,, aca muchos le llaman asi.. pero entonces nos entendemos entre nosotros.. el plywood es simplemente madera contrachapada,, o tambien llamado triplex..

el correx,, es plastico corrugado,, o conocido en algunos lugares como coroplast, en home center venden blanco, negro y gris de 4mm y 2mm, pliego o medio pliego.

hasta pronto

hola, yo tenia la misma duda,, sean me dijo:

A Yardstick is a piece of wood 1 yard long by 1 inch by about 3 or 4mm thick.

Un Yardstick es un pedazo de madera de 1 yarda(0,9144 metros) de largo por 1 pulgada(2,54 centimetros) por unos 3 o 4 milimetros de espesor.

no especifica que madera.. pero supongo que debe ser madera dura,, es el alma del ala...

probablemente en estos dias inicie la construcion,, pero sera un planeador,, no llevara motor.. vuelo en ladera 100%,,,

hasta pronto
