Airborn 1600 Build Wings are ready to cover

They are ready to cover.
What is left is installing the LE pins when mated to the fuselage
and the trailing edge wing bolts will be drilled to mate to the fuselage.
The ply reinforcement for these are installed at the center trailing edge.

The wings have a span of about 9 ft 5". Darn, I was trying for 10ft.
The Chord is about 16"
I can't even stand the darn things up in my shop.
You can hide behind these wings.
Hold them over your head in a breeze and you'll be airborn.
They look good if I do say so.
Now, hide all that pretty jointery under covering, how sinful.
I will start on the fuselages soon, still waiting on my new saw.

Very nice work. I checked back in your blog.
Now I know why you are building 3 of a kind.
3 times National Champion!! That is something.

Conehead,
Actually they are for 2 other SAM flyers and one for me.
I build for other guys and use what I charge them to pay for my
models and I like to build.
There is NO builder of the model rule in SAM.
