Almost the inverse of G-SWON, as Tom suggested - I'm REALLY liking it!

I don't know how exactly, with all the company and all the in n out, but I have managed to get some work done on the wing's. The two halves are becoming one. Once it's cured I wil set it on the fuse and build in the bolt plate.

Warning!!!
For future builder's, install the flying wire bracket's to their corresponding ribs prior to wing assembly. Trust me!

Sounds like a "DOH!" moment.

Guess allen head bolts would be in order?

You could drill holes in the next rib, over, to make for easier access.

Have the tips layed up. When dry I will glue them.
Having the wife, and kids, home for this past week or so has some what hindered the build. Going over things this morning and realised I did not cut the center four ribs on both wings for sheeting. So will have to sand those down.
