Week 45  This week we get the spars which form the trailing edge spars, leading edge and aileron hinge line

The bits we received

Various sizes of strips of wood

And what we did with them

First off I decided that I would taper the aileron hinge line after fixing the wood to the wing.  I reckon this will be less fiddly.  Next I measured and cut the wood to length, and joined the two strips as shown in the photo.  Clothes pegs held them while the glue was drying.

The next job was to add the trailing edge spar to the centre section.  Very straight forward.

This was closely followed by the leading edges.  The above photo shows how you should finish the leading edge half way through the thickness of the rib.

Now add the aileron hinge spars.  I found that I needed to trim a little off the end of each rib to get a good fit.

Finally sand everything smooth.
