TGIF everyone.  Wink
wings are coming along very well.
slow, very slow progress as I am unable to stand still working on plane for too long.
Next step is the installation of the retracts. Smiley
then the servo mounts. Cheesy

Progress, slow progress but never the less, progress.

I am using a 0.5" aluminum wing tube.
the problem was how to set the wing and fuselage with a nice tube. well, I figure I would make my own. so it tried with Dollar store cardboard using two layer and scotch tape. that proved to be a bad idea. It was so tight that it broke when I tried to pull it off the tube. So, I decided to try something different. I wrapped the tube with a layer of parchment paper, then I wrapped that with a 1 inch strip of cardboard the I wrapped the entire thing with several layer of half  oz. fiberglass fabric. Mixed up some 30 minutes epoxy and used robbing alcohol  to dilute it to a watery level. Using a foam brush to apply the mixture was the perfect way to keep my fingers clean.
Note the Newfie Bullet guys (Wing Nut) keeping the  wings to the main body. Thank you Craig for the great idea.

Craig, you are a funny man.
Well, just to be sure the wings stays in place I decided to included some craig-wingnuts Wink. they will maybee stay in place during flight. Undecided
Anyway, here is what she looks like with the main LG on. no Craig, the front one won't be like that. I have to install it properly. Shocked
EDF installed they big enough. if not, I will be replace them with two Binford 2000, 80mm ones.
CG is approximately 1/2 inch aft of the craig-wingnuts.
currently sitting at 2252g/5.56 LBS. this includes the rudder, ailerons and elevators.
time to buy some more wood to finish it.

Progress looks good Alain. You should double up on the wing nuts just in case.
