Hurrican is not ugly.

She's a good looker.

Back to the build started on the wings this evening
i cut the 6mm bottom sht then marked on the rib positions twice(got them wrong 1st time!) sorted a piece of 3mm hard balsa and cut the spars i beveled the leading and trailing edge then cut the ribs and started gluing up

the next step once the other wing is done is cut the styrofoam centre stiffener
