I assume the swept back top wing has no dihedral? It also looks like it's in 3 parts with a centre section and 2 outers. How are they joined?

As the others have said, you certainly work quickly and it looks great.

yea no dihedral in the top wing,i made the wing all in one go ,firstly making the spliced spars and building as normal,the top and bottom sheeting go past the splices so will be strong enough and will have hard wood blocks let into the bottom to fix the struts,all a bit backward but its all in my head and not on paper until I know things work.
