First Wing Skinned!

Well, the top layer went on nicely, put the initial shrink on it to 250 degrees, cove looks good so far. Feels pretty good to see this wing shaping up. Next, I will wrap the aileron and if my clearances are good then it’s time for a stitching party!  🙂

Well, it’s been a while, most of the summer, but I have finally gotten back to making some progress. Here are some pics of the first skin (bottom) of the lower left wing covering process. Tomorrow I finish the glue up and shrink, then apply the top fabric.
