Week 16  This week we get the middle wing joiners

The bits we received

And what we did with them

First off, glue the two spars to the bottom joiner section.  The fit is a little wobbly, but this doesn't matter.  Just apply a little glue to the edges, and push the parts together.  Use a steel rule to make sure they're straight, and be carful not to glue them to the work top.  Allow the glue to go off, and don't try to move the parts.  It is very fragile at the moment.

Next I glued the internal side braces and held these in place with pegs.  The whole structure is stronger now and will stand gentle handling once the glue is dry. 

Finally I glued the bottom section in place, followed by the outer side pieces and the top.  The bottom section needed a slight sand to get it to fit, but otherwise the parts almost fell into place.
