I never built a wing like this before...
I'm building a B&M Models Kloud King. I've just about completed the fuse and tail sections and now I've come to the wing construction.
The instructions say I can build the wing in two ways. After read through the instructions I assume that I can build the center section along with the spars "sticking up in the air" at the correct dihedral and then lay the spar down on the plans and attach the ribs/etc.
Normally I would build both panels and attach them in the center.
Is my assumption correct? I've never built a wing like this before.
Thanks in advance.

Yep, perfectly good way of building a wing; assemble the spar or spars first to the correct dihedral angle, then build the wings a section at a time. Example below, has only one bottom spar pre-assembled over the front view of the wing first, but the principle is the same, the centre section is assembled first onto the pre-farbricated spar, then left panel, then right panel. Means that you get really good, precise joints on the main spar and that the dihedral has to be right.
