    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    Will these struts bear a side or up/down load? Or will it be end load? Reason I ask is if they will be bearing load from end to end, they should be just fine. Side load or otherwise could allow them to bend. But you knew that huh? LOL

    I have a couple of clamps like these. Not the quality brand name as yours, but work just fine. I don't know where I would be without them.

    Lots of wing work today. Leading edge was a big step.

    The curve trailing edge is a project.

    Not sure how to glue the curved balsa at the end ribs, thinking I need something like this for support.
