Week 76  This week we get some small brackets to fix the lower and middle wings.

The bits we received

And what we did with them

Four of the brackets need to have two of the legs chopped off.  They cut quite well with a pair of side cutters, and then just need a wipe with a file to tidy things up.  These will be used on the bottom wings.

Now measure and mark up the wings, and drill the holes.  

I also found that I needed to drill out the holes in the brackets on the fuselage for the top wing, just a little.

Here is the bracket put in place.  Don't glue it yet.  The process was the same for the bottom wings, and I found that the measurements in the instructions to be correct.
