Wing construction under way. Panels built and joined with 1/2 inch dihedral under port wing tip rib. Dihedral braces added then a 1/4 balsa central rib with 1/32 ply outer faces added over spar braces. Wing fixing bolts will go through this with Ali tube guides.

Hinges on elevator and rudder.

Using aluminium tube and piano wire as I don't like commercial hinges. The wire will strengthen the join in the elevator halves.

Need to cut holes in each rib to route servo leads.

Used a false rib to locate and sharpened Ali tube to bore holes.
