Hi Martian

It would mean cutting the tabs off the ribs & adding extra sheet with joints that would probably show. I checked the larger version WM do & that has almost fully sheeted wing, but the kit is OOS, which probably means it won't be available in the future. I did add my email to the notify me when back in stock box, but that was just wishful thinking unless I come up on the Premium Bonds.wink

Following a reasonable nights sleep, I removed the plan from the board, reversed & taped it to the lounge window & drew on the leading & trailing edges & the ribs.

After pinning it down & covering with florists film, I pinned down the main spar with the bottom main spar ready glued on. Then glued on the tip & root ribs, & dry fitted the rest of the ribs. Glued on the top main spar & ribs, the aileron opening leading edge & the rear sheet strip. then finally the leading edge. To finish I dry fitted the fiberglass tubes.

I won't blether on repeating what I said about the first wing half, I've taken pictures from different angles & the text is on the pictures. That's it for today.

Added some more sheets to the wing & did some sanding. Just 1 more sheet to fit & build the aileron then I can plan how to add flaps.
