946.jpg947.jpgHi,made the top sheeting today after installing all the electrics.

As for the washout , i madeup a wedge starting with 2mm at the tip going to zero at the end of the sidepanels(2degrees is about 2mm at the back of the tip)and tack-glued them under the TE.945.jpg

To give the wingtips a little more support i sanded them flush with the false LE and then added the true LE20180609_004841.jpg

The black thing is spraypaint serving as a sanding guide so i don't sand the sheeting away. That would be big trouble

I did also marked the position of the nav.ligths.

When glueing on the tips , make sure the ply-part of the tip is in line with the aileron TE

Thanks Steve,it didn't take that much time really.The hard part is that the foam gets really fragile when it is that thin.I'm hoping the cloth will strengten the whole. Succes with yours ,greetz
