Top Wing Progress Continues

Last Saturday 1/2/10 we spent about six hours on the top wing. We cut and glued the spar caps onto the top of the two spars. We built the two false ribs that will /hold the inboard aileron hinge and Sunday we drilled the I Strut bolt holes and sanded the excess glue and sharp edges. The next big steps will be to get the drag and anti-drag wires installed, build the I Struts and install the leading edges. This will allow us to then mate the wings and fuselage so that we can tack on the lower wing attach fittings and build the cabane struts. The Christmas break has really allowed us to make some solid progress in the Top Wing!
