The Wing

With the basic fuselage and tail built I've turned my attention to the wing, First job is to carefully trace,copy and cut out all the ribs with the inner section in 1/8" ply and the wing panels in 1/8" balsa

A set of balsa wing ribs 
 The centre section made with 1/8" ply and 1/4" ply plate for the retracts

 This picture shows how the wing panel is built with the rib trailing edge packed with 1" balsa. Like the full size this model also has washout built into the wing (not visible in photo)
 Looking down this panel is ready for the first leading edge and vertical webbing to be added

 Panels glued to the centre section ready for the 1/16" sheeting
