Before glueing the sheathing, I've sanded the attaching surface as inclined planes so that they are attached without exposing the edges. Maybe there are better ways handling this.

Update 31Tweeted 3 years ago

Main wing sheathing is done. I was a bit worry about glueing this part. The result looks OK.

Attached the recesses of wheels to the wing

Update 29Tweeted 3 years ago

Recesses for placing the wheels. Try putting them inside the rib see if they fit before glueing them to the wing sheating.

The position of the notch of part VIIv seems wrong, have to cut it then glue them together.

To make the flaps movable, I attached them with blue stick instead of glue. I might glue them at the end if they don't hold up πŸ˜…
