Week 43  This week we get the top wing tips

The bits we received

And what we did with them

Pretty much the same as previous wing tips.  Don't forget to sand the bottom of the rib smooth.  I glued these in place next as it's easier to adjust the slots without the rest of the tip attached.

Here are the two tips steamed to shape.  Personally I prefer steaming wood, but some people prefer the soaking in hot water method.  Each to their own.  Whatever you do, don't burn your fingers, and let the wood dry completely before gluing it in place.

Here is the completed tip.

Hot tip of the week

Let the wood dry before gluing it in place.  That way if the part warps as it dries, you can fix the warp before gluing it in place.
