Why not join wings before covering?

Thank you - I found the color instruction on p107, which makes a lot more sense than the b&w included with the kit; thank!

Another question - instructions explicitly state to NOT join the wings together before covering. I can see why so if building the dihedral trainer, but when building the straight wing, is it ok to join the wings, and then cover? Seems it'd be easier (more effeicient?) to apply covering to both wings at once ... or am I missing something key?

I can't answer that, I have built 4 wings, and have always just done it how James suggested.

I had planed to, but as you know, men may make their plans, but wives usually have something else in mind.

Karen hase me remodeling the entire house. Until she has a new kitchen, I am not going anywhere. I could do a build thread for my house.

Hope you guys have fun. let everyone know, I am still in business. Just had some set backs the last few years. In a few months I will have my new shop built on my own property and will be back to putting out new products.


Thanks for thinking of me,

James
