  2. How will you join the metal and wood? Tabs, glue of what? How do the wings join as well?

    All in good time. Which means I need time to figure it out. I'll post a photo of the wing connection point.

    More rib work today. Using a crooked spar piece to size the main wing spar opening. 20210516_194723.jpg

    Forestner bits have to be some of my favorite drill bits ever created.

  8. The main spar ends will bolt to the connection point in the center of the cabin? How about the rear spars?

    Tony, yes on front spars connecting. There are short spar replica pieces fitted in the photos. I'll post details on rear spar tomorrow.
     
  10. That should make for interesting field assembly!
