img_0229.jpgFinally, I think I might be able to upload a photo. No cladding as yet, to either the fuse or the wing. Next step is the other half of the wing.

Peter / Chris - thanks for your help. I think it is clear now.

Additional question: Can someone please post a photo of the wingtips looking from the wingtip along the wing. I'm not sure how or where on the rib the wingtip is attached so I need to see both from above and below.

Question: I am trying to build the wings. Fortunately I noticed, like everyone else, that there was something wrong with the centreline so that has saved one disaster.

However, my question relates to washout. From the buildlog, I took it that you set the wings up for washout (with the 6mm spacer) only when you begin sheeting. I have build the wing half (in the middle of this at the moment) flat on the board. When I start to add sheeting then I think I am to pack up the trailing edge of the wing half first.

Am I correct?

Also, do I sheet the wing as a whole or in halves?

Tony - I see that you have fitted a web to the main spar. Is this in the drawings or something that you thought you should do?

Thanks for the welcomes.

My intention is to use electric power - same motor and setup as Tony. My current models are all electric - for a klutz like me it is probably the safest option.

I'm currently building the fuse - and repairing it as I go along as I find I'm breaking things though inexperience. I am determined to get less scared of it - it will either fly or it won't (or maybe only fly once, briefly!) but I think the experience will stand me in good stead going forward.

When I discover how to get photos onto the thread I'll post a couple showing (any) progress. At the moment it seems to be one step forward and two back.

HI - I'm a complete novice builder and every step is posing problems. Hopefully with this forum and my mate's help I'll be able to answer most of them. At least if it gets to the flying stage and crashes I'll be able to wonder if it was the builder's fault or the pilot's (even though they're likely to be one and the same.)
