Week 05  This week we get the wing tip

The bits we received

And what we did with them

The tip was assembled pretty much according to the instructions.  However, check the tip rib fits on the end of the spar first.  I had to open out the slots in the tip rib slightly to get it to fit.  The curved part of the tip was steamed, then rolled.  This is a very effective way of getting a smooth curve, but watch your fingers on the steam - it's very easy to burn yourself.

After the tip had dried, I glued these two spars in place.  This was quite straight forward.

Hot tip of the week

Keep the other bits safe - they will be needed later.
