Wing Assembly

The wing is turned upright and the control sticks go in.

This contraption is starting to look like something!

With the wing upside down, Joel installs the cove ribs along the aft wing spar.

Joel prebent the leading edges over a broom handle.

Nailing strips are used during the gluing for the staples.

Here's the wing tip and the aileron bellcrank access panel.
