Building the canopy and frame
Scratch building of the wing main "Box" spar.
Adding the interior ribs to the wing. The wing is built as any conventional style of wing with interior ribs, all foam parts as well as these ribs have fiberglass on each side of them.
Below the top and bottom skins are starting to be installed. Each wing skin rests on a "L" shaped flange that runs around the perimeter of each bay, slightly recessed from the surface. This gives a protrusion of foam mon the outside surface that will be long board sanded down later.
